She was born Jacoba, a feminine version of the name Jacob, which sorta makes sense why Cobie Smulders
decided to change her name for celebrity purposes. It woulda been cooler if her original last name was Sparkles, but we can't have it all. Today is Cobie's 31st birthday and for a MILF who had a kid with one of the latter year "SNL" skit members (her baby daddy is Taran Killam, who she just tied the knot with last September) and I'll give you one reason why you should overlook her folly there - Joss Whedon, the man who directed Smulders in last year's AVENGERS movie originally had planned to cast Cobie as Wonder Woman before he backed out of the project. Maybe he just hadn't met Jaimie Alexander yet. Maybe he was afraid of the protective nature of NPH. Who knows? Have a happy birthday, Cobie! Welcome to the sacred Movie Hottie Galleries as well!
