Russell Crowe and his wife, Danielle Spencer, had a baby boy Sunday night — and no, they didn’t name him ”Minimus.” The baby, Charles Spencer Crowe, weighs 6.2 pounds, Crowe’s publicist told the Associated Press. ”He’s a healthy, bouncing baby boy looking forward to Christmas,” publicist Wendy Day told AP.

Crowe, who married Spencer in April, just picked up a Golden Globe nomination for his performance in ”Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.” He’s next set to put his pugilistic experience to use as a boxer in ”Cinderella Man,” costarring Renée Zellweger.
