He doesn’t turn green when he gets angry; he just cries a lot. That’s about all we know about the new guy in ”Hulk” star Jennifer Connelly’s life. Connelly’s publicist announced that the Oscar winner and her husband, actor Paul Bettany, welcomed a baby boy into their family on Tuesday. The baby’s name and weight were not disclosed.

Connelly and Bettany, both 32, met when they costarred with Russell Crowe in ”A Beautiful Mind,” though they say they didn’t start dating until after production wrapped. They married in December. The boy is the first child for Bettany and the second for Connelly, who has a 5-year-old son, Kai, from a previous relationship.  Both parents have movie dramas coming out this fall; she’s in ”House of Sand and Fog,” while he reunites with Crowe in ”Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.”
