Jemima Kirke From Girls Had Another Baby, Is Still Cooler Than You

Well, well, well. Look whose life is still going amazingly. Jemima Kirke, who plays Jessa on HBO’s Girls, just had a baby. At 27, she’s only two years older than me, and yet she has her life totally and completely together. She has a a husband, whose name I always remember as Ted Mosby but is actually Michael Mosberg, and two kids, Rafaella and a brand-spankin’ new baby boy named Memphis, born on November 20th. Ugh. What a disgustingly cool name. As if I wasn’t already uncomfortably aware of how desperately uncool I seem next to Jemima, she has to go and give her son such and epically cool hipster-y name that I have no hope of competing.

Add to that the fact that Jemima also has a job where she gets paid to hang out with Lena Dunham, Alison Williams, and Zosia Mamet all day long filming one of the hottest shows on television right now, and I may just spontaneously combust from non-coolness. I was already all psyched and goose bump-ed up from the Girls Season Two trailer and the fact that it’s back in like…a month…and now we have to layer this on top of it? I might as well just stay home and eat cheese and grains in my pajamas all winter while I live vicariously through the best and sluttiest (in a good way) and most eagerly-anticipated girls on television.

In related news, this information solves the riddle of which of Lena’s friends gave birth the other day when she posted on Twitter:

“Yesterday was amazing. One of my friends had a baby, one got engaged and the doctor told me the bump on my tongue is nothing to worry about.”

Yeah Lena. I hear you, girl. Today one of my friends got engaged and I made sure Facebook was still up and running while I kept plugging away at a bag of trail mix long after I’d stopped enjoying the taste. At least you’re a goddamn showrunner, you bitch.
