Alyson Hannigan's Daughters Look Exactly Like Her — and We're Obsessed With Their Names!
Despite being the daughters of actress Alyson Hannigan, Satyana and Keeva Denisof have not been to band camp. In fact, it's that very line that makes the American Pie actress leap into panic mode when fans approach her while she's out in public with her kids. "It's lovely to be associated with [a] movie people still know," Alyson said on The Kelly Clarkson Show. "But, I have two daughters now, and when they're with me and somebody starts saying the line, I'm like, 'Can we just stop there?'"
Like many other celebrity families, Alyson and her husband, Alexis Denisof — whom she met on set during her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days — have had to sit their daughters down and explain why strangers might want to snap a selfie with Mommy in the first place. "It's an odd situation," the How I Met Your Mother star told Today. "I made the analogy, 'Imagine Strawberry Shortcake was walking down the street. You might want to take a picture with her. It's sort of like that!'" We admire Alyson's motherly approach! Learn more about Satyana and Keeva, including how they got their dazzling names, ahead.
Satyana Marie Denisof
Born on March 24, 2009, Satyana Marie Denisof is Alyson's first child. Believe it or not, she didn't have an official name until four days after she was born! "I loved Satyana but we didn't name her for four days because we were debating over how to spell it," the Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress told Yahoo News. "I finally said [to Alexis], 'We have to name her because I am tired of calling her baby girl.'" The couple also chose to withhold Satyana's sex until she was born.
In 2018, Saty made a TV appearance alongside her mom on Fox's MasterChef Junior: Celebrity Showdown. While they were there as a duo, Saty had no trouble throwing some shade at her mom's cooking skills. "I like to make the food look cute," stressed Alyson, before her daughter quickly jabbed: "[But Dad] makes the food taste good." Luckily, Saty takes after her father and scored her team a smile from the judges.
Keeva Jane Denisof
Keeva Jane Denisof was born on May 23, 2012 and is the couple's youngest child. Unlike her big sister, Keeva's name had been picked out since before she was born, and was even a possible name for Saty. Now that she's getting older, Keeva wants to make her big TV debut, specifically on America's Got Talent. "She has also asked me if I could just get her an audition for America's Got Talent," the mom of two told People. "I was like, 'What talent are you going to do?' And she's like, 'I don't know I'll figure it out when I get there!'" Keeva has our full support behind her AGT dream!
