Alicia Silverstone welcomes son Bear Blu

Alicia Silverstone's newborn will be right at home with the Pilots and Moroccans of the world: the actress just delivered her first child, a baby boy named Bear Blu.

Silverstone and husband Christopher Jarecki welcomed their son, who weighed in at 7 pounds, 15 ounces, on May 5, her rep confirms.

"We are all three in love!" Silverstone, who wed Jarecki in 2005,  writes on her blog. "I'm so grateful to this community for all the love, support, good wishes and happy vibes you've sent me during my pregnancy ... it has been wonderful. Thank you all!"

Silverstone announced in January that she and Jarecki were expecting, fulfilling her longtime wish to become a mom.

"I've been wanting to have a baby since I was 2 years old," she said in April 2010. "I'm destined to be a mother."

    If all of you think the this poor kid will have problems because of the name his mother tagged him with, JUST WAIT till the kid hits jr. high school and another kid e-mails him a clip of that porn movie with a dog his mother did before she was famous!

    She is stupid so she named him a stupid name so it's that simple, she can probably not even remember anything back when she was 2 so how can she have wanted a baby since then? What a joke! And what a jerk both of them are to name that poor kid such a stupid name she is Clueless!

    I'm sure she will love and care for him no matter what. Besides, kids make fun of each other anyway, if not for a name it's for something else...

    A happy woman gives birth and names her kid a name people don't like. I've heard much worse names and how is it any of your business? An abnormally large number of haters on this board. At least she's going to love the kid. I'd rather have a "weirdo" that loves her kid as a mom than parents that treat their kids like garbage.

  12. my sad life is SOOO much better as posted here

    celebrities are automatically dumb and i am so smart that even without knowing the slightest thing about them i can judge and curse their lives, their newborn children, names of which i have no knowledge of the source or meaning, waaaahhhhhhhh..... i hate celebrities so much (can be lumped into one group of exact same characteristics) that i have to click on every article about them. i am so cool and intelligent, thank you cnn for allowing me to showcase my prowess

    Lets face it most, if not all, of the parents are in therapy, so why should the children be any different??

    I think it would sound better if they would have named him Blu Bear. At least when kids make fun of his he would at least have a cute name!

    It is cruel to give a name like that to a kid just so you can get more print.

    Bear is a dogs name. Wish these Hollyweird people would think before they saddle a child with an awful name.

    I keep hoping these Hollywood people will get some common sense, but I guess I'm hoping against hope! She was truly CLUELESS when it came to naming her baby – and if she thinks the kid is going to thank her someday for it, boy, she really is living in a dream world!

    If it was a girl's name... we would have a problem. Imagine marrying a Chinese man last named Wang.

    Celebrities, please stop naming your kids these goofy names! Of all the horrible, most self-indulgent, self-absorbed things to do. Think about your children when they get older. Sheesh.

    Look at the Husband, he looks nasty and he doesn't have the coconuts to say "No we're naming him Christopher, or Mchael, not Bear Blu". I guess if you have alot of money, you name your kid a stupid name and then spend it all on therapy.
