I try to avoid armchair psychology, but I seriously doubt that she's mentally healthy enough to raise a child. It's not even a case of bad motherhood, I just don't think she's well enough.

In more-suited-for-this-parenting news, Idris Elba and his girlfriend had a baby boy. And posted the sweetest photo of a finger ever

Drew Barrymore had a second daughter, Frankie.

I hate nicknames as names. I really do. Even though I know many lovely people with nicknames as names and it clearly doesn't matter in the long run. I will say Olive and Frankie are very cute sibling names.

I also don't like nicknames as names, but I've loved Frankie as a girl's name ever since I read Member of the Wedding, and debated whether to name my own daughter Frances so that I could call her Frankie.

Olive Wilde and Jason Sudeikis named their boy Otis.

That's a great name! Hits that sweet spot between unusual but still classic and not too weird.

I used to have zero feelings on Olivia Wilde or Jason Sudeikis, but somehow put them together and I really like them!

I don't know about Otis Sudeikis...not that it's bad, just not a combo I would use.

This is clearly a generational thing, because all I can picture when I hear "Otis" is the town drunk on The Andy Griffiths Show.

All I can think of is Ellen Tebbitts' tormentor.

Otis Spofford! That's who I think of too, hee.

I'm also unsure about "Otis Sudeikis," but I like the name overall.

I feel like he's going to become Otis S'dkis because of the identical ending syllables, but that's not the end of the world. Also, Otie is an adorable nickname.

I think of Milo & Otis. But I don't remember if Otis is the cat or the dog. I like it. It's not super common, but it's an actual human (and animal) name.

Yeah, that's the Otis I thought of too when I heard it.

Congrats to them.

I can totally see Otis being the next old-man hipster baby name. I think Homer tried to make a comeback at one point.

(I feel the same way about Hannah, which was my great-grandmother's name, and is suddenly everywhere again.)

That made me laugh hard.

Personally, I immediately think of Otis Day and the Nights. If I were ever around a kid named Otis, I would be forced to greet him with a hearty "Otis! My man!" every time I saw him.

Not terribly relevant, but "Miss Otis Regrets" has been running through my head for the past couple of days.

For some reason, the name Otis just always brings a faithful dog to mind. Not a bad name by any means though.

To hear Ella Fitzgerald sing that song is a thing of great beauty.
