Alyson Hannigan's second born came out of the womb so cool she's already doing fist bumps. Well, sort of.

The "How I Met Your Mother" star tweeted this adorable photo of her new daughter Keeva Jane Denisof, who was born May 23. (Yep, three weeks ago. Some people are good at keeping secrets in Hollywood!) The baby joins big sister Satyana, 3, and Hannigan's husband, actor Alexis Denisof.

"They are all doing well," a rep for the 38-year-old actress told

Now about the name Keeva. According to, "Keeva is possibly an Anglicized version of the Gaelic name Caoimhe. (Yes, those two names are indeed pronounced similarly in Gaelic.)" The celebrity name site also points out that both Keeva Jane and Satyana Marie have "highly unusual first names with classic middle names -- a practice embraced by many parents who want their unusually named children to have something to 'fall back on.'"

Last month Hannigan, who also recently appeared in the movie "American Reunion," joked that after Jessica Simpson gave birth she was vying for the title of "biggest baby bump in Hollywood."

While Hannigan was great at keeping the birth of her little one a secret for the last three weeks, she had less success keeping the gender under wraps during her pregnancy. During an appearance on the "Rachael Ray Show," she accidentally let it slip that she was having a girl. Telling a story about the then-unborn child, she said, "The other night, she — ahhh, you know... ," tripping over her words." During the interview she also joked about potential baby names, noting: "I might name it Popcorn!"

Popcorn is a very Hollywood baby name and all, but we're pretty glad she went with Keeva!

How about you? What do you think of Hannigan's name selection?
