Gp041006 02At least they didn’t name the baby Jesus. Although, she is Jewish, so that probably wouldn’t have happened anyway.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have added to their family. Their second child, a son named Moses Martin, was born this weekend, the actress’s rep tells PEOPLE.

The Shakespeare in Love Oscar winner, 33, and her British-born Coldplay frontman husband, 29, already have a daughter, Apple, born May 14, 2004. Moses is the name of a song Martin wrote for his wife in 2003.

    Good God!!


    Still awful name. Just name him “God” instead.

    Is she serious?

    I like Mango Martin better.

    JesusMaryAndJoseph…why Moses???

    A biblical name eh? Adam seems more appropriate, considering the little girl is Apple!

    Gwyneth you are such an evil bitch.

  6. tia

    i fell so bad for those kids, they’re gonna get bullied so bad in school

    i think MOSES is a WONDERFUL name! traditional, meaningful personally and publicly.

    these children will go to school in ENGLAND. many RICH ENGLISH people use old or currently “unusual” names. what they MIGHT get bullied for is just being that famous…..hopefully the kinds of schools gwyn can afford would have that shit under control.

    MOSES is also a good name because it is a name that a grown man can wear. a lot of people DON’T think ahead for their baby boys, and go too precious. (grown women can wear any name–precious or not. except “mckenzie”, “taylor,”
    “madison,” etc. etc.those names are terrible) (sorry if i offend anybody)

    That is so cute! As soon as I read it I thought ‘Awww, the song!’

    I love it. SO cute.

    They won’t get bullied because they’ll be going to cushy private or boarding schools with other celebrity kids sporting even weirder names. Compared to Jason Lee’s son Pilot Inspektor, Shannon Sossamon’s son Audio Science, Rachel Griffith’s son Banjo, and Penn Jillette’s daughter Moxie CrimeFighter, Gwyneth’s Apple & Moses will fade into the wallpaper.

    I love the name! Thank goodness. I had a co-worker named Moses, and I loved saying it. It’s not a name that makes you cringe, and it’s also not very common. Masculine enough.

    Adam is a great name too, but when they’d call the kids, they be yelling, “Adam! Apple!” Not a good thing.

    1. moses is a very common name for jews and proudly given….go rent the ten commandments if u need an education or better yet…try reading the old testament, for those here who can read.
    2. she and her husband are wealthy enough to send their kids to the best schools of course and will always be protected by mommies money…its the price they pay to being born to megarich parents, I have a feeling their lives wont be very hard!…name or not
    3. G’s father was jewish, but if her mother didnt convert then she isnt or her kiddies. FACT.
    4. mazel tov Gwyn…
    5. for the few here who are realllllllly clueless please remember this fact forever, Jesus was born a jew, was circumsized @ 8 days and had a bar mitzvah when he turned 13….so the names u listed Mary are jewish..joseph moses mary etc. take ur pick from the old testament, thats the one that was written b4 the new one lol.

    Elizabeth–THANK YOU!!!!
    My grandfather’s name was Moses and I intend to name my baby boy after him.

    Dear me, am I the only one who thinks that Apple is a cute name?

  15. elizabeth

    Dear Drink, the answer is YES!… does Gywn call her ‘rotten apple’ when she misbehaves?
