Alicia Silverstone has become the latest mother in the current Hollywood baby boom, giving birth to a baby boy on May 5.


The 34-year-old actress and healthy living author blogged the official announcement on her "The Kind Life" website


“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),” she writes. “We are all three in love! 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 reportedly delivered little Bear via waterbirth at a Los Angeles birthing center. "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."


Naturally, controversy over Silverstone's name choice has errupted online — with most panning the decision. "Wow," wrote one commenter. "The kid is gonna be in therapy."


"Bear Jarecki sounds like a good name for a linebacker­," wrote another. "I hope he likes sports! Or at least stays in Hollywood."


Whatever. The kid can always change it later if he doesn't like it. Congrats to the new family!
