Happy 6th Birthday Bluebell Halliwell!

Name: Bluebell Madonna Halliwell

Date of Birth: May 14, 2006

Parent: Geri Halliwell

Siblings: none

Facts:


 Bluebell was born via c-section at London's Portland Hospital
 
 Her father's identity has never been revealed, although there has been reports it is British film director Sacha Gervasi (Geri has never confirmed this)
 
 Her middle name honors two of her mother's heroines: the Virgin Mary and singer Madonna
 
 Her godparents are Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton and George Michael's partner Kenny Goss
 

Quotes:

"What really clinched it for me was my mother telling me that the bluebell is increasingly rare – so it’s a precious flower, which seems just right for my daughter.” - Geri on the reasoning behind her daughter's name.

"[Being a single mother] isn't the ideal scenario. It’s quite tough. I wanted to write, because it meant I wouldn’t be at work all the time. I could work in the house and still spend plenty of time with my child. For me, it’s that balancing act between giving my child the time she needs, but also finding something that is going to satisfy me as a working woman. That is a real juggle." - Geri on her daughter.

"I hate it when I don’t see Bluebell. It’s like I’m addicted to her.” - Geri on her feelings about being away from Bluebell.

Happy 8th Birthday Apple Martin!

Name: Apple Blythe Alison Martin

Date of Birth: May 14, 2004

Parents: Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin

Siblings: Moses, 6

Facts:

 
 Apple was born in London, England
 
 Her middle names were chosen in honor of her grandmothers; Blythe is her maternal grandmother's name and Alison is her paternal grandmother's name
 
 Her godfathers are Johnny Buckland and Simon Pegg
 
 Mama Gwyneth has stated that her daughter speaks with a dual accent; American and British. Apple speaks with an American accent when she's asking Gwyneth for a snack, but switches to her British accent and calls Gwyneth "mummy" when friends are around
 

Quotes:

"Her daddy said if it's a girl, I think her name should be Apple. It sounded so sweet and it conjured such a lovely picture for me – you know, apples are so sweet and they're wholesome and it's biblical – and I just thought it sounded so lovely and…clean! And I just thought, 'Perfect!' And then she was born, and it became an international outrage. Which I found surprising because there are people named Rose or Lily or Ivy or June…or lots of pretty nouns!" - Gwyneth on the reasoning behind her daughter's unique name.

"We are 900 miles over the moon” - proud papa Chris on the birth of his first child.

"I've been saving my clothes for her since before she was born. I was like, I'll bet you anything I'll have a daughter, and she'll be a really cool butch lesbian and be so above clothes, and I got a very clothes-obsessed child. So if she's a lesbian, she's a lipstick lesbian. She doesn't like anything avant-garde at all. She likes anything that's pretty, pretty, pretty or has a bow or a ruffle or is pink." - Gwyneth on her daughter.
