Halle Berry's Surprising Baby Name! It's...

We're loving the Spanish moniker the actress chose for her new son

Halle Berry and husband Olivier Martinez are an international couple, so it’s only fitting that they chose a baby name with worldly flair for their newborn son. People is reporting they’ve chosen the name Maceo-Robert for their new baby, who was born on October 5. The couple has not confirmed the name, but it was shared on the blog of a friend.

Maceo is a Spanish name meaning “gift of God.” The name is a nod to Martinez’s heritage; although he calls France home, his father was Spanish, and named Robert, too.

Berry, 47, is having a banner year. First, she got “the biggest surprise of her life” with her second pregnancy. Then, she married Martinez in July. Last month, an anti-paparazzi law she championed was signed into law; it penalizes photographers who take snaps of celebrity kids without permission.

Congrats to the new parents and big sister Nahla!
