<p><span></span><strong>Marley Shelton</strong> has taken on many personalities during 19 years of acting. But it's her quirky role in 2001's <em>Sugar & Spice</em> that helped prepare Marley for the arrival of her daughter, West, on Sept. 6. "I played a cheerleader who was pregnant with twins," she told Life & Style in an exclusive interview at her LA home on Oct. 27. "I remember doing my research for it, so it's funny now to be living out motherhood. Thank God I didn't have twins!"<br />
Instead, Marley and her husband, producer Beau Flynn, welcomed one sweet angel. "West is just full of smiles," Marley, 35, says. "I could watch her smile for ages. She's amazing." As for the unusual name, well, it has an unusual story. "My husband actually dreamed seven years ago that we had a daughter, and he was calling her West," Marley recalls. "I immediately said, 'If we ever have a daughter, we're definitely naming her that.'"
And the star of the upcoming films Untitled and Women in Trouble certainly feels happiest around her little girl. "I love everything about West," Marley gushes. "She's just scrumptious."
