Alicia Silverstone has a baby boy (last week)

One-time teen star Alicia Silverstone and her husband Christopher Jarecki are celebrating the birth of their first child, the actress and outspoken vegan has blogged. Wait until you get a load of the kid's name.

"My husband and I welcomed our 7 lb 15 oz baby boy Bear Blu Jarecki into the world on May 5th at 7:50am (PT). We are all three in love!" the 24-year-old wrote. "I'm so grateful to this community for all the love, support, good wishes and happy vibes you've sent me during my has been wonderful. Thank you all!"

Alicia and Christopher, 40, were together for eight years before getting married in 2005, so they've had time to think about this. Bear Blu is where they want to go? It sounds like an obscure nursery rhyme, or perhaps a manly sounding dandruff shampoo, from the marketers who brought you Coke Zero. Maybe there's a school celebrity kids with silly names all go, so no one will beat them up. We hear Jason Lee's kid, Pilot Inspektor goes there.
