The guests got into square dancing and the simplicity of all that was what Coolidge loved the most. She then revealed that the coolest part of it all was how the couple then gave birth to children named Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell.
Coulter immediately reacted in excitement after learning that Coolidge knows Eilish’s parents. Baird, who saw the interview, thanked the actress for the revelations while calling her a ‘big-hearted talent’ via an Instagram post.
