    I LOVE Beverly Cleary!! I grew up on those Ramona books. It’s such a lovely name. Very old school. Very Maggie-esque.

  • Kristy

    I think she looked cute pregnant… she should stay that way.
    I’m undecided whether she’s hot or not. She’s interesting though, which is a compliment.
    He’s hot.
    So their baby should be too. Not that it matters.
    Congratulations!

  • viki

  • Kat

    These two seem like relatively NORMAL celebs–Best of luck with your new baby girl!

  • Kellie

    Ramona? ??????????????????????????????

  • http://www.myspace.com/skyla25 skyla

    Maybe Ramona will rival Shiloh in the beautigul baby stakes. Especially if she has her dads eyes and eyebrows they are to die for.

  • Human

    Aww congrats to her, she seems lovely and very interesting person. I’m glad more actresses are realizing their nature as women and don’t deprive themselves or their men from creating family, career should always come second.

  • Alien

    To Human.
    Wait. Should career always come second for women or people in
    general? Cause if your saying that only for women you sure are
    ancient!

  • remember da truth

    Human, what the heck are you talking about? Is a woman’s
    nature only as a breeder? What is wrong with you? And how is
    having goals other than popping out babies depriving their men?
    What if the men have other goals, too? It’s only a problem if one
    wants it and the other doesn’t, and one is constantly lying about
    it (not that I’m going to mention any names cough — anuston —
    cough).
    To think that a woman HAS to have kids to be a woman is an
    insult to women, men, and especially those that CAN’T have a
    family.

  • Human

    remember da truth, i dont know what part of my post was so offensive!?!? Is it wrong to say it’s woman’s nature to become a mother, wait is being called a mother to you is offensive?? I did NOT say women MUST have kids but to prefer career over family is something i am againt. Having kids should not go against your ambitions, are you saying mothers dont have ambitions but popping out kids? You can be a working mother but the notion that you deprive yourself and more specifically your partner from creating a family fearing that other producers might lose interest in you is despicable, this applies to women AND men. At certain age, just let it go and be natural. Beside i didn’t insult anyone, i said i am happy that many actresses are realizing that creating a family is important, not for me, but for them.

    Alien, of course this applies to men as well.

  • Beth

    Human: heh! Sounds like you got jumped! I understand what you meant. But some people are more career oriented and some more family oriented. It just depends on the person and sometimes how you are raised. Sometimes it is better for the more career oriented to be career oriented. These people make our country a little more richer. The family oriented raise their kids with a little more family mind set. And some can do both with the ut most competence. It all depends on the person. Different strokes for different folks! I support them all. Oh and congratulations to the happy parents!!

  • malibumom

    Human-I’m with you-I understand-I love the part about women not worrying that producers will drop them. This was very very common just a few years back-My interpretation of the HW baby boom is that women are showing that you can have a family and a career and still be a top box office draw-this speaks volumes to closed minded little greedy power hungry men who would rather screw young new actresses and convince them this is the way things go while simultaneously firing more seasoned actresses who choose to have families . It is a immoral, pathetic, revolving door that women like Julia, Reese, Catherine Z Jones, Angelina,Maggie, and a host of others have closed and created their own door. I applaud each and everyone of them. By the same token, I applaud and respect all women who choose NOT to have a family, kids, or both. Unfrotunately, we don’t hear enough about these. Congrats to Maggie and Family

  • gala

    I don’t like the name Ramona, but I think it’s a beautiful baby

  • Rinna

    Congratulations to Maggie and Peter!

  • d.c.

    Why have a baby if you don’t raise it. Poor kid if that is not true. Luckily she has a tight and loving family to fill in any absent gaps.

  • viki

    how do you know its beutiful if there are no picutes posted on here

  • http://www.thesarsgaardsoiree.com Danielle

    Congrats to Maggie and Peter!! I’m so happy for them. Ramona is an interesting name, at first I didn’t like it but when I thought about the Beverly Cleary books it became really cute to me!

    She’s going to be a beautiful baby. Peter and Maggie both have such unique looks (in the good way!).

    =] Can’t wait to see pics/more news.

  • who cares

    I’ve never understood teh fascination with her, anyway congrats on a healthy baby– ugly name, though

  • Pink Sherbert

    Romona? Damn! Why oh why do people do this to their children? PEOPLE WAKE UP….these “cute” names aren’t cute on adults! Yes, someday little Romona is going to grow up and NO ONE will take her seriously!

  • Tara

    They have always been one of my famous celebrity couples. They look so happy. I bet Ramona will be the sweetest child & Uncle Jake will spoil her rotten!

  • jakegyllenhaalic

    Oh that’s so awesome ! I bet they will be great parents, Jake will be an awesome Uncle, Mom and Dad G will be fantastic grandparents and Boo and Atticus will be incredible watchdogs and playmates ! :) Thanks for the “exclusive” news ! YOU ROCK! “Uncle Jack Nasty” how has earned his stripes for real ! :)

  • The word is sherBET

    Er, Ramona is hardly a cutesy celeb name. On the contrary, it is a pretty-sounding name that nevertheless “works” as a name for an adult woman who would like to be taken seriously.

    Plus: Ramona Quimby, yay!

  • Eoi

    Women, like, men should be able to do what they CHOOSE to do. It should be up to nobody but the individual to decide. Human, your opinion is fine for you but please don’t project it onto everybody else and esp. not Maggie because she’s had a career first and has waited until she has time (at 28) to have a child.

  • RAMONA

    Well first off congrats to the proud parents and it’s nice to see my name “Ramona” getting some spotlight!!! In my lifetime I only met 2 other people with my name and I love having a unique name…beats being called Jennifer or some other common name that EVERYONE else has!

  • EyesWideShut

    JustJared you LIE like sack of SHIT – THAT IS NO EXCLUSIVE Darling – I saw it on 3 other websites before yours sweetheart….looks like you’re out of the LOOP! BTW Maggie is officially MILF!

  • Joshua

    ¡Felicidades!
    El nombre es fuerte, seguro es esa la intención.

  • rachel

  • TRACIE F.

    I JUST WANT TO CONGRADULATE MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL AND PETER SARSGAARD FOR THE BIRTH OF THEIR 1ST CHILD RAMONA…SHE’S GOING TO BE AS GORGOUS AS HER MOMMY AND DADDY…AND I ALSO WANT TO CONGRADULATE JAKE MAGGIE’S LIL BROTHER ON BEING A FIRST TIME UNCLE….I HOPE SHE’S GONNA BE AS FAMOUS AS THE FAMILY IS….GOD BLESS YOU ALL WITH YOUR NEW BUNNDLE OF JOY…..CAN’T WAIT UNTIL SHE GETS OLD ENOUGH AND START ACTING LIKE MOMMY,DADDY AND UNCLE JAKE…LOVE YOU ALL….

  • Rae aka Ramona

    It IS a wonderful name–it means “wise protectress”, it’s old-fashioned, has some great music behind it (Bob Dylan, Nat King Cole), a cute California town, a classic novel, a fine Jamaican liqueur (Rumona), a darling children’s book, and a great nickname–Rae. Not many names can claim THAT much history & association!

    In my lifetime, I’ve only met 7 or 8 of “us” and we all LOVE having the name. It’s unsual without being STUPID–like Apple, Peach, Huckleberry……

    I’m glad to be a Ramona
