Eliza Dushku Is a Mom! See Her ‘Lion King’-Inspired Announcement

One year after tying the knot, Eliza Dushku and her husband, Peter Palandjian, are taking on an all-new venture: parenthood.

Yesterday, the Bring It On star, 38, revealed that she and Palandjian welcomed their first child together, a baby boy named Philip. Dushku announced the news on her personal Instagram account and shared a Simba-style photo of the father-son duo.

She captioned the post, “Our BABY = #Bourne. Can you feel the love, Philip ‘Bourne’!? So [prayer emoji] for all this love.”

Back in February, Dushku announced that she was expecting her first child while chatting with reporters during a special screening of Mapplethorpe in New York City.

“We’re just very excited. We just got married in August. It’s a special year for us,” she said.

Dushku and Palandjian met in 2015 and announced their engagement in 2017. The couple tied the knot in August 2018 in an intimate courtyard wedding at the Boston Public Library.

Congratulations to the new parents!
