‘We always talked about having a sibling for Cecily but had sort of left it up to, “if this happens, it happens.” And when it happened and I told Colin, his face was shocked.’ 

Colin admitted he was definitely shocked by it and joked that he, ‘had to be like, “Well, Colin, when a man and a woman love each other very much…”‘

Murin said she’s very excited to be having a girl, though she added she would’ve been happy no matter what. 

‘Obviously we would’ve been happy either way but I was really thrilled that it’s a girl,’ she explained. ‘I have a sister and we are very, very, very close, so I love the idea of the two of them having that bond. Plus, there’s the whole Frozen thing which makes it extra special.’

‘I grew up with all boys in my family, I’m one of three boys, and of course it would’ve been ecstatic to have a boy but, I don’t know — I think I figured out this girl dad thing by now. So I’m ready to have another girl around the house. I just love it. It’s so, so sweet.’ 

Murin added that they are not ‘traditionalist,’ and they have raised Cecily with a mix of different influences.
