awww, that’s so cute. My son’s name is Vicente- it’s nice to see celebrities naming their babies names that are common in south america, because most of the time people look at me like “WHAT DID YOU SAY?” when I tell them my son’s name. My daughter’s name is Valentina, and Salma Hayek just named her daughter that too.🙂

People en español says the baby’s name is not Vicente. Follow the link: http://www.peopleenespanol.com/pespanol/articles/0,22490,1693944,00.html

Sarah’s note: We don’t speak Spanish. What does it say? Thanks.

The People en Espanol article says: “Although the newborn’s name is unknown, a U.S. magazine reports that he was registered with the name Mikhail Zaratustra Castro Liberman.”

They say the boy’s name is Mikhail Zaratustra Castro Liberman. Zaratustra means “super man” and was the name of a persian prophet. He was born naturally after 14 hours of labor, weighted 8.2 pounds and his height is 22 1/2 inches. Christian wanted the baby to be born on December 5th because then, he will share his birthdate with Walt Disney

My son’s name is Mikhail! I have yet to meet another one. I read him this article and said maybe we started a trend!
