When she's not writing, Claire Gillespie can most often be found wiping snotty noses, picking up Lego, taking photos of her cat or doing headstands.

Pretty Little Liars' Chad Lowe gave his baby a name that's bound to make waves

Nixie Barbara Lowe joins big sisters Fiona Hepler, 3, and Mabel Painter, 6, to make the Lowes a family of five, and the Pretty Little Liars star shared an adorable family photo on his Instagram.

According to Nameberry, Nixie is the name of a "mermaidlike sprite in German folklore," which was introduced into English in 1816 by Sir Walter Scott, a Scottish historical novelist. Given the fact that both parents are avid surfers, and Nixie's star sign is Pisces, the name seems perfect. The middle name Barbara honors Lowe's late mother.

Nixie is a cute-as-a-button, but definitely not common, name — so far, only 14 babies per million have been named Nixie this year. Since 2000, its most popular year was 2012, when 20 babies per million were named Nixie. 2016 could be on course to top that, however, now that the Lowes have introduced their little water sprite to the world.

Kim revealed on Twitter that Nixie came a little earlier than expected...

And shared a gorgeous snap of her dark-haired daughter sleeping peacefully.

We also love Kim's tweets that prove she's just a regular mom like the rest of us.
