UPDATE ~ People confirms the name of Helen Bonham Carter and Tim Burton's baby girl, it's Nell. The creative couple had difficulty agreeing a moniker. Bonham Carter confirmed the name during a phone interview with the Jewish Journal while on the set of Terminator Salvation in New Mexico. Bonham Carter said her daughter was named Nell after "all the Helens in the family." The actress's mother is named Elena and her grandmother was called Helene. The name originated during medieval times and is a diminutive of Helen. It was also widely popular in the U.S. at the start of the 20th century. Rumours said that the baby was named Indiana Rose, however the reports were never confirmed by the couple.

The couple are also parents to 4 year old Billy.

Both Bonham Carter and Burton were nominated for Golden Globe awards for Sweeney Todd – she for best actress, he for best director. The news came when they were at the doctor's office. "We were talking about inducing, and Tim got a call from his assistant," Bonham Carter told People. "I do look like a globe, so it's kind of funny. I am very round." She added that the anticipation of meeting the new baby was intense. "I just can't wait," she said. "It's hard to imagine we can make anything other than Billy."

Bonham Carter made a name for herself starring in dramatic pieces Howards End and Room With a View. She received a Best Actress Oscar nod for 1998's The Wings of the Dove. She has appeared in several of Tim Burton's movies; Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and will also be in the new Harry Potter movie.

Peter Reckell Baby

UPDATE ~ In a piece by TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco, Peter talks about his daughter and how they named her.

TVG: How’s the family?

PR: Everyone’s healthy and happy. Here’s a picture of my daughter, Loden. She was born last October, and she’s my pride and joy! Loden came to my wife, Kelly, in a dream and suggested the name Loden Sloan. So when Kelly woke up, she looked up Loden, which is a shade of green, and Sloan is Celtic for warrior. Since we’re both passionate environmentalists, it made sense.

TVG: She’s gorgeous! Loden obviously inherited her parents’ DNA. Any more children in your future?

PR: No, that’s it. We might adopt down the road. My wife is adopted. Also, people don’t really talk about population control, and we should be discussing that topic.

DAYS ACTOR & MUSICIAN WIFE ARE PARENTS ~ Josh Taylor (Roman Brady on Days of Our Lives) has posted some news in the form of a letter on his site about cast mate Peter Reckell (Bo Brady on the show); "By the way, Peter and his wife Kelly, just had a baby: 6 lbs. 9oz. All is well for them."

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Twins

UPDATE ~ The twins will be making their world exclusive debut on People tonight at 7 p.m. EDT. We will not be posting the picture, please click on People to view.

UPDATE ~ Jokingly calling Brad "my assistant," the ob/gyn revealed that the new dad cut Knox and Vivienne's umbilical cords after their deliveries, saying, "He was ... perfectly calm, totally determined, very pleased to be at the birth of his children, very moved and very emotional."

THE TWINS HAVE ARRIVED!!! ~ Brad was at Angelina's side the whole time. Angelina delivered the couple's son and daughter via c-section on July 12th, 2008 in Nice, France, People confirms. "The babies are doing well. The operation went just perfectly," Dr. Michel Sussmann reports. "Angelina is in very good spirits. Brad Pitt was at her side. He was there and all was well." Son Knox Leon arrived first at 6:27 p.m., weighing in at 5.3 lbs, while daughter Vivienne Marcheline was born within a minute and weighed in at 5 lbs. The twins are the fifth and sixth children for Jolie, 33, and partner Brad Pitt, 44, who are already parents to Maddox Chivan, 6; Pax Thien, 4; Zahara Marley, 3; and Shiloh Nouvel, 2. "The mother and father are very, very happy," Sussmann told People. The doctor also told the Associated Press that the Cesarean was moved forward "for medical reasons" so that the babies could be born "in the best conditions." He also said Jolie is expected to stay in the hospital for a few days, which is normal.

Knox ~ Old English; round top hill, from the hills. Irish/Scottish; from the hillod.

Leon ~ Latin; lion.

Vivienne ~ French; spelling variation of Vivian ~ Latin/English; full of life, lively.

  • Rosie & Kelly O'Donnell's daughter is Vivienne

Knox is the middle name of Brad's grandfather (Hal Knox Hillhouse). The Jolie-Pitts have also started their own tradition; instead of their sons having alliterative first names, they share instead a final letter "x," and for their middle names, final letter "n." Leon is the name of Angelina's great-great grandfather.

Vivienne, in it's French form reflects the twin's place of birth and perhaps it too will be noted that it is of family origin for the Jolie-Pitts. Marcheline is an obvious tribute to Angelina's late mother who was of French-Canadian and Native American heritage.
