Congratulations to Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy who have finally brought their first born into the world: a son who they have unusually named Cyrus.

The 'Romeo and Juliet' star gave birth on Monday (December 17th 2012) just days before Christmas and certainly makes for a wonderful present although child care may compromise her attendance at the Golden Globe awards on January 13th 2013. The pair had previously expressed their excitement to People magazine. 'There's no way of anticipating what that's going to mean for us but we are very excited', they said. 'We are going to love this person.' Claire has also insisted that this festive season was the most perfect time to give birth and 'getting to know' their new baby which they have since named Cyrus Michael Christopher Danes. huh?

Okay, so it's not that unusual that a high profile Hollywood couple have named their child something odd. Not that it matters - the main schools in these celebrity circuits must be so full of bizarrely named kids that there's no danger of being teased for it. Cyrus isn't really that strange then considering this fact, although one can't help but wonder if Danes is secretly a massive fan of Miley.
