Eliza Dushku & Husband Welcomed Their Baby “Lion King” Style

Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Eliza Dushku and her husband Peter Palandjian just welcomed their first child together and shared the news with the world in the cutest way.

In an Instagram post earlier this week Dushku shared the news of their son’s arrival. She also revealed that their baby boy is named Philip Bourne in the caption, ““Can you feel the love, Philip ‘Bourne’ !?” The Lion King reference fits the adorable image of dad Peter holding baby Philip up like Mufasa presenting Simba.

In another post Dushku explained the meaning behind their son’s middle name. The actress and her husband recently moved back to her hometown, Boston, after two decades in Los Angeles. Wanting to pay homage to her roots and family, Dushku wrote that Philip’s grandpas are laid to rest in the Bourne, Massachusetts National Military Cemetery. “Crossing the Bourne Bridge always signaled family, sunshine, love and summer,” she shared.

On a side note, the actress admitted that becoming a mom has already changed her. “My emoji game has increased exponentially since this ball of (love) burts into this world & now they just shoot out of my child-loving heart,” Dushku hilarious explained of her emoji-filled posts.
