Maya and her fiance Michael Angarano have welcomed a son named Leon Frederick, while Anna revealed she and Alex Anfanger are the proud parents of a daughter named Essie Wunderle Anfanger.
‘The middle name comes from my dad’s side of the family, in honor of him,’ Anna told Vogue of her daughter’s name. ‘The Wunderles were known to have strong, forward-thinking women. And my great-great-grandfather, also a Wunderle, went from selling sweets from a street cart to having a large factory where candy corn was invented.
‘Hopefully she’ll appreciate the name instead of resenting us for giving her something difficult to spell.’
The baby news wasn’t the only big piece of news fans learned about Anna – the actress also revealed she had become engaged to Alex.
