“Tales of the City” star Laura Linney gives birth and her son’s middle name is Armistead (as in Maupin)
Laura Linney has given birth to a son at the age of 49 and paid tribute to author Armistead Maupin in naming him.
Linney and her hubby, Marc Schauer, have named their son Bennett Armistead Schauer.
Linney is a four-time Emmy winner and a three-time Oscar nominee who first rose to stardom starring in Tales of the City and its two sequels as Mary Ann Singleton.
Maupen shared the news of Facebook writing: “There are no words. She Skyped us her tummy a few months back, but I didn’t know about the baby’s name until Bennett was born. She and Marc called from the hospital when I was flat on my back in a dentist’s chair getting my teeth cleaned. I hollered so loud that hygienists came running from everywhere.”
I interviewed Miss Linney back in 2009 about her breakthrough role on Tales of the City. See our chat HERE.
