Coldplay's Chris Martin Has a Boy

Singer and wife Gwyneth Paltrow name the child "Moses"

April 10, 2006 2:46 PM ET

Continuing their run of somewhat Biblically-themed monikers, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 29, and wife, Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, 33, gave birth to a baby boy and named him Moses. The child, the couple's second, was born this past weekend in New York City. Paltrow's publicist confirmed the news.

The Martins have a daughter, Apple Blythe Alison, who will turn two years old in May. Martin and Paltrow were wed in a private ceremony in Santa Barbara, California, in December 2003.

Coldplay recently wrapped a winter jaunt with singer-songwriter Fiona Apple and former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft, in support of their latest effort, X&Y. That album, the follow-up to 2002's A Rush of Blood to the Head, debuted at Number One last June, and has since sold more than three million copies.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
