It's a girl for Colin Hanks and Samantha Bryant

Tom Hanks’ newest grandchild is a girl, the second for his son, Colin Hanks, and his wife, Samantha Bryant, People is reporting.
“Ms. Charlotte Bryant Hanks has decided to join us,” the actor, 35, told the magazine. “She’s as happy and healthy as we are overjoyed and tired.”
Looks as if the Hankses called first dibs on the good old-fashioned name Charlotte, which has been mentioned as a possible name for Duchess Kate’s royal baby, which is due any day now.
Charlotte Hanks joins elder sister Olivia Jane, 2, in the Hanks household. Hanks and Bryant were married in 2010.
The couple announced the pregnancy in April when they appeared for the premiere of Tom Hanks’ Broadway play, Lucky Guy, by the late Nora Ephron.
Colin is an actor (Dexter, NCIS) like his father, and he seems to have the elder Hanks’ sweetly ironic sense of humor.
“They cannot wait to just dote on this kid with every single fiber of their being,” Colin Hanks joked about his father and his wife, actress Rita Wilson. “My wife and I are more than happy to give them our baby and say, ‘Here, watch her while we take a nap.’ “
