Kristin Davis baffled by Sex and the City baby name coincidence

Kristin Davis had no idea she named her adopted baby girl after her onscreen daughter in Sex And The City, branding the coincidence "weird".

The single actress became the legal guardian of little Gemma Rose Davis last year (11) after filing her application through an adoption agency.

Davis' character in the hit TV and movie franchise also had a daughter called Rose, but the 47 year old insists her decision was not deliberate - she has just always loved the name.

She tells Anderson Cooper, "I had totally forgotten that on Sex and the City I also had a child named Rose and since I did this whole thing in secret I didn't talk to anybody about the naming or the adopting at all and I didn't realize the connection.

"Then we announced and everybody was like, 'Oh, she named her after her Sex and The City baby'. I didn't even consciously (realize it), not at all, not at all. I almost named her Rose as a first name because I kept thinking it's such a beautiful name. Isn't it weird? I think it was lodged unconsciously."

Davis also reveals she has no imminent plans to adopt a second child, adding: "I had never thought about it because I was so kind of worried about the first. Once she came I was like, 'Hey I can do this, this is OK.' So I mull it over, but because I'm a single mom, I want to focus on her and make sure I'm doing a good job first."
