Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, Parents Again

Good news in the world of celebrity offspring with weird names -- Apple Blythe Alison Martin, daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay singer Chris Martin, has a new baby brother to kick around. The couple's second child, a boy, was born over the weekend and both mother and baby are reported to be doing well.
After weathering many snickers in the media over their daughter's name, Chris and Gwyneth decided to go with something a little more traditional this time around. Okay, a lot more traditional. They've named their second kid Moses.
Apparently, "Moses" was the name of a song Martin wrote for Paltrow in 2003, a year before the birth of Apple. Paltrow's mother, actress Blythe Danner, told People magazine in the midst of the Apple flap that "we love unusual names in the family," so presumably she'll be delighted to welcome the namesake of an Old Testament prophet into the family, as well.
