NEW BABY ALERT: A Max for Lance and a Cassius for Bobby

Lance Armstrong and his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, have a reason to celebrate.  People.com reports that the couple welcomed a new possible Tour de France winner into their household Thursday night: Max Armstrong.  Baby boy Max joins Lance's three other children with ex-wife Kristin Richard (Luke and the twin girls, Isabelle and Grace).

Yet Lance isn't the only celebrity with a new baby announcement.  According to Usmagazine.com, Bobby Brown had his own announcement to make Wednesday night.  He and his girlfriend, Alicia Etheridge, have welcomed a baby boy into the world as well!  They have named their son Cassius.  Cassius joins two half-sisters, Bobbi Kristina (Bobby's daughter with ex-wife Whitney Houston) and LaPrincia and two half-brothers, Landon and Robert Brown, Jr.

Of course we can't comment on these new arrivals without comparing the babies' names!  For Lance being such a competitive person, we are amazed that he would pick the name Max for baby number four.  According to babynamewizard.com, the name Max is currently ranked 141 in the United States.  The name Cassius, however, peaked in the 1880's and is not currently ranked in the US.  Lance's baby's name may have won in popularity, but in originality, he certainly didn't win this baby name race!
