The actress and her fiance had their first daughter together more than three months ago, but it wasn’t until today they revealed her name. And it’s quite the name.
Uma Thurman gave birth more than three months ago, but she and fiance Arpad Busson didn’t reveal their baby’s name until today. The actress may have had a good reason for keeping it quiet — her daughter has quite the name.
“I would like to announce Uma and Arki’s daughter’s name for the first time officially: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, better known to family and friends as Luna,” a rep for Thurman, Gabrielle Kachman, told People.
The couple didn’t say where the names came from, but Kachman claimed that “each name has a special reason and meaning to her mother and father.”
Rosalind was born July 15 in Rhinebeck, New York, to Thurman and Busson. The couple got together in 2007, split up in 2009, then got back together and have been a couple ever since. The baby girl is the first child of the couple, although collectively they have four children.
“She joins elder siblings, Maya Ray and Levon Thurman-Hawke, from Thurman’s marriage to Ethan Hawke, and Flynn and Cy Busson, the financier’s sons with ex-fiancee Elle MacPherson,” said People.
Not only has Busson been engaged to two of the hottest women in Hollywood today, but he was rumored to have dated Farrah Fawcett as well.
Thurman has been married twice before. Her first marriage, to actor Gary Oldman, lasted only two years, from 1990 to 1992. She married Ethan Hawke in 1998 after meeting him on the set of the movie Gattaca. The couple split in 2003 but not before having two children. Arpad’s two sons with Elle MacPherson were born in 1998 and 2003.
Interestingly, the couple’s families go way back. According to a memoir of a wife of Busson’s stepfather, Busson’s aunt was a companion of Timothy Leary, who was married to Thurman’s mother in the early 1960s.
Rosalind and mother are said to be doing great.
