Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green Welcome Son Noah Shannon

Surprise – it’s a boy for Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green!

“We have been very lucky to have had a peaceful few weeks at home, but I would like to release this myself before others do,” the actress, 26, wrote on her Facebook page Wednesday.

“I gave birth to our son Noah Shannon Green on September 27th. He is healthy, happy, and perfect.”

This is the first child together for the couple, who married in 2010 and announced the pregnancy in June. Green, 39, has an elder son, Kassius Lijah, 10, from his prior relationship with Vanessa Marcil.

“We are humbled to have the opportunity to call ourselves the parents of this beautiful soul and I am forever grateful to God for allowing me to know this kind of boundless, immaculate love,” Fox continues in her post.

“Thanks to those of you who wish to send your positive energy and well wishes. May God bless you and your families abundantly.”

Aw congrats to the family. I love Megan and from what I’ve read about her as a step mom I bet she will be an even better mom.

I didn’t know she was religious =)

Sometimes the birth of a child makes a parent believe in things they once questioned πŸ™‚

Lillian on

Aw very sweet! So refreshing to see a celeb couple keeping their private lives private without public documentation of every new thing. And great that they could keep the birth news in the family and have time together before sharing the info!

Molly on

Congrats! Nice name for a boy! πŸ™‚

Liz on

Congrats to them, and what a blessing to have had a little privacy! Still, doesn’t her message seem a bit over-the-top?

Renee on

Shut up LIZ!

β€œWe have been very lucky to have had a peaceful few weeks at home, but I would like to release this myself before others do,” the actress, 26, wrote on her Facebook page Wednesday.

— More like you’re wondering why the Paps hasn’t been by yet!! – 1st they want Privacy, then they get it, then they want everyone to know. She pouting cuz no one’s found out. Sound like she’s almost disappointed she didn’t get more publicity/attention. Ugh!!

Taraakapinky on

I dunno Dany, I didn’t get that at all. I think they have been extremely careful to keep it quiet and she wanted to release the news the way she wants to. If she wanted publicity or attention her agents could have “leaked” the news or someone would have posted a picture, and so on. Remember how they didn’t acknowledge the pregnancy until June? It was obvious beforehand but I think they are realizing the privacy and ability to deal with things on their own is nice. That’s just my take on it πŸ™‚

Jay on

Congrats to them on the birth and for keeping it private but celebs use the most corny words in their statements (immaculate love??). A little much!

Reesca on

Congrats to them! Finally, a NORMAL couple who don’t feel the need to talk about their child every other day, unlike Nick Lachey and a few others. So refreshing!

Keli on

Reesca, since when is it not normal to talk about your kids everyday? Mine are 5 and 8 and I still do

Anonymous on

Thank you for picking a normal name. Love it! Congrats.

marcfash on

I am shocked at the class and demeanor in which this announcement was made. She seems to be a very mature and loving person and I am very happy for this couple. The fact that they kept this private and for just their family is amazing these days and the fact that this news didn’t leak out before now is shocking. Good for them!! and the name is adorable!!

Nancy on

That is the sweetest birth announcement I’ve ever seen. At least they weren’t “over the moon with excitement” as so many parents have lately!

Blessing to them and their new son.

Chica on

Yes Nancy! That is so clichΓ© now!

Brooklyn on

Gotta say I’m surprised they were able to keep this private for so long! Anyways, congrats to them and I love the name Noah Green.

Misty on

Congratulations to them!

Yamilett on

Congratulations on not only your precious gift from God but on keeping your news private for as long as you did. You two have proven that certain moments in life are just too precious to immediately tweet or facebook about. I also congratulate you on the beautiful words you used on your post and I wish you much luck and hopefully, very few sleepless nights. Congrats again Green family!

Janice on

Congratulations! Love the name!

2timeMom on

Love the name Noah. I actually know a Noah Greene! And he’s the sweetest boy in the world! πŸ™‚

boohoobytch on

awww, congratulations to them

2timeMom on

That’s crazy he was born almost 3 weeks ago and no one knew about it (media wise). Good for them to have gotten that time to themselves to bond with baby and not buy into the media. πŸ™‚

Cai on

she is so refreshing and beautiful congrats to them both

Taraakapinky on

I have a ton more respect for Megan Fox after reading this statement. She used to be way too over the top and transparent… I like this grown up Megan a lot more. And the name is adorable! I’m sure the baby is stunning! Congratulations to them!

Jessica on

CONGRATS to them! Cute name. I can’t wait to see pics of him!

kim on

sooooo happy for them! what a sweet beautiful family they will be!!

Daffygrams on

Happy for them and love the name Noah.

Lynn on

Proof that celebs can do things privately if they choose. Congrats to them and love the name!

Ivy. on

I’m guessing either of them will have to make a public appearance soon, and they wanted to announce it on their own before reporters/media hound them on any kind of update and they’re forced to make the announcement. Good for them. Hopefully they can keep him “under wraps” as long as they want. πŸ™‚

lcs on

I love the name. And for those curious about “Shannon” it is actually a traditional boys name from Ireland, such as Kelly etc.

Kat on

I honestly forgot she was pregnant, congrats to her on her privacy and her son!

veronica on


Cathleen on

Great, strong name. Congrats to Megan and Brian!

dancer92136 on

So happy for them both and glad that they had three weeks to enjoy their little secret in private. Class act.

Linda on

Don’t really like them…though I am very happy for their baby news. Congratulations on your baby. I hope that Vanessa Marcil ..who I Love has another baby and also a good marriage when or if she get’s married again.

Jocelyn on

Linda, I think I read a few weeks back Vanessa filed for divorce :(. I always loved her on GH.

fanofboardwalkempire on

congratulations to the happy family. Love the name Noah! very cool and bibical as well. YEAH!

Brat on

I completely forgot she was pregnant. Congratulations.

Rachaelachael on

God bless. Congrats.

Denise S. on

Congratulations to them and it’s refreshing to see celebrities who aren’t in a big rush to pimp out baby photos.

Anonymous on

Love the name!! Congrats to them! πŸ™‚

sherquetta on

congrats to the new parents

Meep on

None of the media outlets picked it up because, and this isn’t to be cruel, but they aren’t really *that*famous. Fox has isolated a lot of Hollywood by trash talking the people that gave her roles and Greene is just kind of laid back but hasn’t really been in anything for a while. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good thing they were able to keep it private, as it should be in most cases, but the fact still stands that they aren’t high enough on the celebrity totem pole to have media outlets banging down their door for pictures and news on them. There is NOTHING wrong with that.

Today on

Awwww…so nice…Congratulation!…Noah is beautiful name

myladyeve on

Congrats to the new family!!!!

dd95 on

awww CONGRATS!!!!!!!!! i cant wait to see her baby!!!!!!

Lisa on

Good for them – staying out of the public eye as much as possible during her pregnancy and having the baby without the whole world knowing the progress of her labor. They kept the whole thing personal and I’m sure they will be very happy about that decision in the future.

Rhonda on

Congratulations to them! I bet he’s one cute baby boy.

schoney hartsock on

Congrats to the beautiful couple. Four of the greatest days of my life,Laila,Rosannah,David and Wyatt. πŸ™‚ much love and many blessings to you all.

CJ on

Shannon is actually traditionally a Celtic boys name. I’ve always planned on using it if I had a boy. Kelly, Aubrey, and Ashley are also boys names. I know a few Dana’s too.

berthasthoughts2012 on

Linda, about Vanessa Marcil, she is re-married. She is married to Carmine Giovanozio (?) who plays Danny on CSI-NY. She has been married to that actor and about a year and a half ago or so and she miscarried at about four months, or close to that. I’m pretty sure they got married on New Years Day 1/1/2011.

I think they are still wanting to have one but don’t know anymore than that. I don’t think that Carmine has any kids of his own. I’m really hoping they try again and she is succesful in having a baby. I would love to see her and Carmine have a little girl. The one think I know for fact is that Vanessa and Carmine got married on New Years Day whether it was 2010 or 2011; it’s one of those. It was sad when she lost the baby. She’s had a few miscarriages. 😦

Taylor on

Cant wait to see pictures!

Maggie on

Bert, Vanessa and Carmine filed for divorce back in August.

Cappy84 on

That is gonna be one gorgeous baby!

James on

Carrow, she may not be religious per se – she talks later on about “sending positive energy” which makes me think she’s more spiritual than religious.

Anonymous on

Simple enough to write “from his relationship with Vanessa” and not “previous” relationship with….

Nice name and I winced at all the “god” stuff and then remembered, Megan isn’t a 200-watt bulb…but I really admire the secrecy/privacy, way to go! If only Tori Spelling could take a lesson: oh, too late, way too late! The magazine cover photos of Aguilera’s baby and Lopez’s babies, ick ick. It’s just a baby! Precious to its parents and family, but otherwise no different from billions of other babies! I do bet their kid is cute, though!

Tracy on

Congrats to them both! I love them both and I love the name Noah.

Marge on

Not a fan of her’s but love him! Anyway that’s an adorable name and I’m sure an adorable baby. Nice to celebrities backing away from the trend of odd and obscure names.

mandysandy on


Jewel on

Congratulations as every new life is beautiful.

However this girl should stop behaving like a DIVA of some sort. everything is so secretive about her. Marriage, pregnancy and now the birth of her child. If it is no big deal then do not even announce it. Stay completely out of the limelight. You are not a A lister.

CJ on

Such a sweet way to share the news. I’m happy for them and wish them all the best with their new son.

LiL MoNsTeR on

Seriously? I thought it was some prank to get attention…Seriously??

cynthia on

Isn’t Shannon a girl’s name?

susan on

Finally, a normal celebrity baby name. Shows class.

Sharon on

Beautiful, normal name! Congratulations to Megan and Brian…cannot wait to see pics! To me this seemed like a quick pregnancy compared to others!

Cynthia, it can also be a man’s name…there is a football player named Shannon Sharpe πŸ™‚

I'm Standing Right Behind You on

A nice normal name…HOORAY!

Congrats and many blessings!

Kim on

Congratulations! (And thank goodness..a NORMAL name!)

GlamGirl on

Thumbs Up Megan! LOL

Melissa Rivera on

Congrat to Megan and Brian to becoming new parents.

One Voice on

This couple is overrated.

B on

I didn’t even know she was pregnant! In the above photo, she doesn’t look too far along!! Must be nice :p I was 110 lbs before I got pregnant, and with a rough pregnancy, I went up to 180 lbs. This was 4 years ago, and I’m only down to 130 now! Good for her for keeping an amazing shape! So happy for them πŸ™‚ Congratulations, and best wishes πŸ™‚

tricia on


Erin on

I like Megan, despite what people say, she isn’t some hollywood floosy..she was with Brian for years before she married, had a baby and named him a normal name! Imagine that!

Marky on

Cynthia, Shannon was originally a “boy’s only” name, but has been appropriated a s a girl’s name as well. Shannon is used quite often as a boy’s name…..

Congratulations to the happy couple, and glad all is well.

Mara on

Congrats to them! I forgot she even was pregnant.

Carrie M on

Congrats “David Silver”! I’m sure he’s gorgeous just like his parents.

just me on

Shannon is not a boys name. Congrats though

Karen on

Congratulations to them! That will be one handsome little guy.

What?!?!? on

I bet that babies beautiful!

Julianna on

Awwwww! So happy for them! I love the name, it’s timeless!

Anonymous on

Congrats to them! That being said, I have to chuckle at PEOPLE saying that Megan and Brian “announced” their pregancy in June. Um, no, they didn’t. They NEVER confirmed the pregnancy. All that happened in June is that Megan stopped trying to hide her belly. I’m not sure how that equates to announcing the pregnancy!

Debbie on

How does anyone know how the child will look. Megan Fox has had a lot plastic surgery on her face. Know one even knows what she really looks like.

lelee on

Congrats to Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green!

I really love the name Noah. Noah Shannon Green is a nice, normal name. Congratulations!

Shannon is a boys and girls name. There are some celebrities who are named Shannon: Shannon Leto for example – Jared Letos brother…. Or Shane Wests birth name is Shannon Bruce Snaith. So Shannon is a unisex name.

reagan on

Mazel tov to the couple. We can only hope he doesn’t have her thumbs.

Beth on

It’s so refreshing that she kept the birth a secret for almost a month. Congratulations!

Anonymous on

Debbie- So? That doesn’t mean the baby won’t be cute! πŸ™‚

stephanie on

Congrats to them. Yes Shannon is an old Irish BOYS name, from the River Shannon. It was “stolen” by the girls but in Australia it is used 99% of the time for a boy not girl – I know it’s the opposite in USA.

RachaelMall on

Some of you complain about Megan being a publicity whore. Then some of you complain about her trying to maintain her privacy and call her a “diva” or a “nobody” for doing so. What is wrong with you people?!

Maria on

@ics – Shannon isn’t a traditional boys name in Ireland, neither is Kelly. They are surnames, common enough but I wouldn’t call them traditional first names.

queenofhearts on

Congratulations Brian, Megan & Kassius on the birth of baby Noah!!

Katie on

Wow.. That seemed so fast! I guess time really does fly!! πŸ™‚ Congrats to them! Many blessings!

I wish u both the very best in becoming parents an have a very happy life together
