Emma Stone has recently given birth to a daughter, it has just been revealed that she has named her child a special name that has a sentimental meaning to the star.

In January, Emma Stone announced that she was expecting her first baby with husband Dave McCary. The couple welcomed their first daughter in March of 2021 but have remained very private about their newborn, and it was only recently revealed that their child was a daughter.

It has now been revealed by TMZ that the couple has named their child Louise Jean McCary. This sweet name is of particular significance to Emma Stone, who shares the same middle name as her daughter. Emma's real name is Emily Jean Stone and now she and her daughter have an adorable connection through their middle names.

TMZ reported that as well as giving her daughter her middle name, Emma has also named her daughter Louise Jean in a heartwarming tribute to her great-grandmother. TMZ state, “We're told that the baby's middle name is a tribute to Emma's grandmother, Jean Louise ... so her daughter's name is a flip-flop of her great grandma's,”—how cute!
