Oh man, that baby’s middle name is going to be “heartbreaker”! Haha, congratulations to the Maguire family.

CelebBabyLover on

Wouldn’t it be a hoot if they named him Peter?!

MZ on

I had totally predicted a girl for them. Can’t wait to hear his name!!!

Amanda on

Normally I don’t even try and guess what people are having but for some reason I had a dream they were having a boy (which is weird because {no offense} he is not someone I normally would dream about) so it’s kinda crazy that they did ;p I’m sure he will be super cute though (Ruby is adorable) and can’t wait to hear a name. How exciting! Congrats to them =)

Lorus on

A boy! I thought they’d have another girl. Congratulations to them! I can’t wait to hear the name.

becky on

aww i bet he’ll be a cutie (:
i hope they give him some quirky and unusual name, as i just love hearing strange celebrity baby names!!

g!na on

aaw, congrats!

Rebecka on

Aww congrats to them! I thought they would have a girl, but of course a boy is adorable too :D

eternalcanadian on

Good news! I wonder what the boy’s name will be considering his sister is named Ruby Sweetheart!

lolita on

WOOOOOOOOW CONGRATLATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i allways was sure that they are having another girl! LOL

NELLA on

Awww! Sweet!! Congrats. I can’t wait to hear the name.

j.U.d.E. on

Peter?! Ew! No, too common and in French it means ‘to fa*t’.. sorry. Don’t like it at all!

Hope they find a ‘sweet’ middle name, just like Sweetheart. Or another gemstone – Opal or Topaz! LOL!

Topaz Cherub for instance..

j.U.d.E. on

Or – ‘Regent Diamond’ –> “Cushion-shaped stellar brilliant cut, formerly belonging to Louis XV, Louis XVI, and Napoleon Bonaparte, it now resides in the Louvre”.

Ruby and Regent!

Grace on

Lovely news :) I thought she would have another girlie.

jude suggesting the name peter was a joke because spidermans real name is peter parker. :) :)

congrats to them, i also thought for sure a girl but was hoping for a boy!!

Bumbles on

Wow I hadn’t really thought about what these two would have but I was surprised it was a boy so I must have been thinking it would be a girl deep down!!

Congratulations to all the Maguires.

Karen on

LOL at Peter as a name! Maybe they’ll choose Stone!

Linda on

I guess we wont hear a name for a week, arent they Jewish? maybe a hebrew name, I could be wrong, but when a celeb has a baby usually and they are jewish we dont hear the name for a week, especially when its a boy!!!!

Nika on

Congratulations!!! So nice, a girl AND a boy!! :-) Can’t wait to hear the name, I bet it will be just as cute as Ruby’s!

I don’t know why but it felt like Jennifer had been pregnant for ever, like other celebs announced their pregnancy much later, but deliverd much sooner! :-S

Solène on

Lol #15! I rarely think of that! Péter means that, you’re right, but the way it’s pronunced is very different, and the context is too, so I never notice. The german pronunciation is far more awkward to us!

Mary Beth on

Maybe they will call him “Parker”? Just a thought-

Chris on

I thought they were going to have another girl too. If Nicole Richie also has a boy that would be too cute considering she is friends with Jennifer. Can’t wait to hear the name!

Lisa on

Really? I did not know Nicole Richie was friends with Jennifer. anyways im so excited that the family had a healthy baby boy! I cant wait to hear his name, and I bet he is going to be just as adorable as Ruby!

fergette on

Yay! I’m excited to hear his name. Congrats to them!

babyboopie on

Congratulations to the family! They could just call him Spidey Darling Maguire! Ruby Sweetheart and Spidey Darling!

JMO on

Wow that just seemed like the fastest pregnancy ever!! Can’t wait to hear the name!

Alicia on

Jacob would be a cute name for him. Jacob Maguire.

babyboopie on

Yeah, Jacob Peter Maguire?! :P

Alicia on

Yes! LOL, that would be SO cute.

Patrice on

Wow! Congrats to them : )I don’t know why, but I was sooo convinced that they would have another little girl…

Allison on

Congrats to them! Can’t wait to hear the name.

camille on

i’m surprised of how much other people were convinced as I was that they’re going to have another girl… i ictured tobey with two little girls but still congrats on baby boy!

ab on

congrats to them! I too was surprised to hear it’s a boy.

izzie on

yea i thought they would have girl too but anyways congrats on ur baby boy cant wait 2 hear the little angels name!

Emily on

Sarah on

How sweet to have the baby born just 2 days before Mother’s Day! Congrats! :)

elizabeth on

i knew they were having a boy!!!

emma on

aww congrats to them. Ruby is a true a sweetheart and the little boy will be gorgeous aswell.

Jaclyn on

I cannot wait to hear the name, I hope they use another old-fashioned moniker. I just love the vintage style of Ruby :)

Emaline on

DYING to know the name!!!!! :)

Mattie on

I think a lot of people thought they would have a girl because of their friendship with Ben Affleck/Jennifer Garner and Matt Damon/Luciana since they both have 2 girls (well 3 in Matt and Luciana’s case). Congrats to their family!

Jackie on

Like many of the other posters, I thought for SURE it would be Girl No. 2 for this family! Still, the thought of Tobey with a son makes me smile. He’s so good with Ruby; I know the son will be every bit as darling. Congrats and best wishes to him, Jennifer and Ruby for their new arrival!

Mary-Helen on

Congrats to them! I wonder what they will call him.

Jessica on

Really can’t wait for the name… I think Ruby Sweetheart is an adorable name and she is definately an adorable little girl!
Congrats.

EM on

I am so happy for them!!! can’t wait to see him!!!! Congrats. I can’t wait to hear his name!!
