Actress Paltrow gives birth to second child
LOS ANGELES, Apr 10 (Reuters) Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow gave birth during the weekend to her second child with rock star husband Chris Martin, a son the couple has named Moses, a family spokeswoman said today.
Mother and baby are both ''100 percent'' healthy, but the celebrity couple were revealing no further details about their new son, spokeswoman Emily Yomtovian said.
Paltrow, 33, and Martin, 29, whose British rock band Coldplay recorded a song called ''Moses,'' have a daughter, named Apple Blythe Alison Martin, who turns 2 next month. Her first name drew considerable attention when she was born. Paltrow has said her husband thought of the name.
''It conjured such a lovely picture for me -- you know, apples are so sweet, and they're wholesome and it's biblical -- and I just thought it sounded so lovely,'' the actress said in 2004 on ''The Oprah Winfrey Show.'' Paltrow, who won an Academy Award as best actress for her role in the 1998 film ''Shakespeare in Love,'' married Martin, Coldplay's lead singer, in a secret ceremony in Southern California in December 2003.
The two met backstage at a Coldplay concert in 2002, five years after the end of Paltrow's high-profile romance with one-time fiance Brad Pitt. She also once dated actor Ben Affleck.
