    When it comes to celebrity baby names, the general trend seems to be the more unique, the better. Who can forget Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s daughter Apple? Or Geri Halliwell’s daughter Bluebell Madonna? So when actress Keri Russell revealed her newborn baby’s name, we did a double-take.

    Russell was a guest on NBC’s Today yesterday promoting her upcoming movie Free State of Jones, and Matt Lauer congratulated her on her new bundle of joy. Up until that point, Russell hadn’t revealed either the baby’s sex or name, but she decided to share both right on the spot.

    ‘We had a boy,’ she told Lauer, and revealed his delightfully classic name: Sam. ‘He’s so good. He’s big and fat and nice.’

    Russell and her partner, The Americans co-star Matthew Rhys, are both pretty private when it comes to sharing details of their personal lives. We doubt we’ll get many more details about baby Sam, but we get it. It’s none of our business. Congratulations to the happy couple!
