Actress Isla Fisher, and her husband Sacha Baron Cohen, reportedly welcomed their third child on March 17, with their son’s name on the birth certificate given as Montgomery Moses Brian. Brian seems to be in honour of Isla’s father, Brian Fisher. Montgomery joins big sisters Olive, aged 7, and Eulula, aged 4.
Isla was born in Oman to Scottish parents, and after an early childhood in Scotland, moved to Australia at the age of six. Her acting career began in TV commercials at the age of nine, and continued with roles on children’s television programs such as Paradise Beach. She was a regular on Home and Away for three years, before attending a drama school in Paris, and taking on roles in theatre. Early films roles included parts in a German horror movie The Pool, Scooby-Doo, and Australian film The Wannabees. Her breakthrough Hollywood role was in The Wedding Crashers, and she has appeared in Wedding Daze, Definitely, Maybe, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Bachelorette, and The Great Gatsby, as well as several episodes of Arrested Development. Isla published two YA novels as a teenager, and has also co-written film scripts. After converting to Judaism before her marriage, she took the Hebrew name Ayala, meaning “doe”.

He is best known for creating and playing four comic characters – Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev, Brüno Gehard, Admiral General Aladeen – who have appeared in televison shows and films. He has also made film appearances in Talladega Nights, Sweeney Todd, Hugo, Les Misérables, and Anchorman 2, and been in episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and The Simpsons.
