A hearty congratulations again to Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez (and big sister Nahla, of course) on their new arrival! It looks like we’re going to have to wait a little while before finding out what they’ve decided to name him, though… or will we?
According to People, Halle and Olivier have in fact picked out a name for the brand new baby boy—but they’re planning on keeping it under wraps for a little while longer. TMZ, however, either a) is making stuff up, or b) has an extremely well-placed source, because they’re claiming that they already know what the name is. Hmmmm…
According to the gossip site, “sources familiar with the situation” tells them that the little boy’s name is… drumroll, please… Maceo Robert Martinez. Maceo, TMZ writes, is a name of Spanish origin that was popular during the Medieval period; it means “Gift of God,” although you might be more familiar with its current version: Matteo or Matthew. Robert is apparently Olivier’s dad’s name.
So: Thoughts, Betty? Is TMZ for realsies? Or is this just an attempt to capitalize on something the jointly celeb- and baby-obsessed will be spending the week Googling?
