Odd Couple names for Gillian Andersons sonsOctober 22nd, 2008 - 5:02 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 22 (ANI): Gillian Anderson has surely drawn inspiration from The Odd Couple when it comes to naming her sons.
The Odd Couple, a Broadway play written by Neil Simon in 1965, revolved around a neurotic newswriter named Felix and a slovenly sportswriter named Oscar who are forced to live together.
A 1968 feature film starred Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in the respective roles, reports the Sun.
The X Files star gave birth to a boy named Felix on 15 October in London, almost two years after she delivered her first son, Oscar.
The father of both the boys is her boyfriend businessman Mark Griffiths.
The 40-year-old actress also has a teenage daughter Piper, 14, from her first marriage to Clyde Klotz. (ANI)
