Paltrow Gives Birth to Baby Girl

Gwyneth Paltrow has given birth to her first child - a baby girl named Apple Blythe Alison Martin. The Oscar-winning actress and her rocker husband Chris Martin are the proud parents of the baby - weighing a hefty nine pounds and eleven ounces - born in a London hospital on Friday after a "long labor". Coldplay frontman Martin enthuses, "We are 900 miles over the moon, and we'd like to thank everyone at the hospital who have looked after us amazingly." Paltrow is the daughter of actress Blythe Danner and the late director Bruce Paltrow. She recently hinted that she may adopt her mother's approach to motherhood and put her acting career on hold to raise her child.
