Chad Lowe's new baby gets a name straight out of a fairy tale
Chad Lowe is seriously outnumbered by women in his home now, after he and his wife Kim welcomed their third daughter on March 18.
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.
The Lowes began dating in January 2007 and tied the knot in front of family and friends during an oceanside ceremony in Los Angeles in August 2010.
Congrats on your beautiful new arrival, guys.
