The Stork Meets the Hawkes, Part II
"The Golden Bowl" star Uma Thurman, and her husband of nearly four years, "Training Day" star Ethan Hawke, both 31, are the parents of another child, their second, born on Tuesday morning in New York. The baby, a boy whose name has yet to be announced, weighed in at 7 pounds, 15 ounces, and mother, father and child "are all home and well in New York," a spokeswoman told Reuters. The couple's first child, daughter Maya Ray Thurman-Hawke, was born in 1998. Shortly before she arrived, reported PEOPLE, her parents-to-be bought a $1.25 million four-bedroom house a half-hour drive north of New York City. (They also have a Greenwich Village apartment that has been on the market for some time, for a reported $3.6 million.) Thurman and Hawke originally met at an ATM in New York in 1995. "Uma will be a completely devoted mother," her former acting coach and friend Cindia Huppeler, whose son is Thurman's godchild, predicted to PEOPLE. Her "Pulp Fiction" costar, Samuel L. Jackson, concurred: "She's a very loving and giving person." After Maya's birth, Thurman told the Associated Press, "I think motherhood is sexy. I don't expect anyone else to, but for me it's one of the sexiest things I've ever done. By far." Professionally, Thurman will be seen on TV later this year in HBO's "Hysterical Blindness," which premiered this week at the Sundance Film Festival. (It also stars Juliette Lewis and Gena Rowlands and is about women anxiously pursuing romance in 1980s New Jersey.) She is also expected to return to a movie set soon, reteaming with her "Pulp Fiction" director Quentin Tarantino on his "Kill Bill," about a coma victim who wakes up and exacts revenge.
