Someone who feels very passionately about baby names is Chris Martin!
Coldplay’s Chris Martin doesn’t see anything wrong with Nicole Kidman naming her daughter Sunday or Jessica Alba calling her girl Honor.
Chris, 31, — who named his son Moses and daughter Apple — tells the new issue of Blender: “People make a big fuss over names. Names of babies, names of albums, names of bands.
“There’s nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if that’s what you want to call your baby,” he goes on. “It’s no stranger than Sarah.”
He said, “a name is just a noise, and if you like it, then f–k what everyone else says.”
Chris and wife Gwyneth Paltrow may need to think of more names soon.
Asked about getting pregnant again, Gwyneth, 35, told July’s Harper’s Bazaar, “I may force myself to do it one more time because the result is so worth it.
“My mother loved each [pregnancy] to bits; she felt alive and beautiful. I wanted to throw up all the time.”
She said she and Chris (who recently admitted he had a tough time with girls before he met Gwyneth) are even open to adopting.
“I do feel we’re so fortunate, and we kind of owe it to humanity,” Gwyneth told the magazine. “We have a lot of love to give and a lot of resources.”
