Zoe Buckman, the British photographer and wife of the Friends star David Schwimmer has given birth to the couple's first child and named the baby-girl 'Cleo', reports People Magazine. Zoe Buckman and the actor-director welcomed their daughter on Sunday 8th May 2011 in New York.
44-year-old Schwimmer married the London-born Buckman in June 2010 having dated for three years. Speaking to People Magazine back in 2006, the actor stated his desire to start a family, saying, "It will happen when it feels right. Maybe part of me is waiting for myself to slow down a little and be ready to stay put. I'm confident it's gonna happen". Schwimmer posted a photo of his new-born daughter on Twitter earlier today (23rd May 2011), with the message, "Hey everyone. Please welcome my daughter Cleo, to this crazy but wonderful world". The couple first met while Schwimmer was in London directing the 2007 comedy movie 'Run, Fatboy, Run', with Simon Pegg and Thandie Newton. The actor recently directed the drama flick 'Trust', with Clive Owen and Catherine Keener, and is also scheduled to reprise his role as 'Melman' in Madagascar 3'.
Zoe Buckman has worked as a photographer for numerous British publications, most notably GQ and Marie Claire. She also helped launch Sadie Frost and Jemima French's 'FrostFrench' boutique in London.
