By Alexandra Heilbron on June 8, 2011 | 6 Comments

Jennifer Connelly gave birth to her third child with husband Paul Bettany at their home in New York City on May 31 in a scheduled water birth. The newborn is their first daughter — they have a son — Stellan, 7, and Jennifer has a 13-year-old son, Kai, from a previous relationship. They’ve named their daughter Agnes Lark Bettany. Jennifer’s representative said: “Everyone is healthy and doing well. The family is very excited.” Paul and Jennifer met just over 10 years ago while filming A Beautiful Mind and have been married for eight years.

    The smallest girl in Despicable Me was called Agnes. She was really cute. It’s old fashioned, but way better than Apple.

    I absolutely love this couple!! I can’t help but laughing a little thou. There was this show growing up my Sis made me watch on TVO called Dear Aunt Agnes. It had this seriously old lady with a big chunky pearl necklace and glasses with your typical older lady poodle perm. I can’t help but think of this lady when I hear the name “Agnes” I am sure the baby is much cuter!!!
