(Newser) – Laura Linney became a new mom this week, which is notable because a) everyone likes Laura Linney; b) she and husband Marc Schauer didn't even announce they were expecting; and c) Linney is 49. Linney and son Bennett Armistead Schauer are doing fine, a rep tells People. As for the name, E! Online speculates that it has something to do with Linney's appreciation for author Armistead Maupin. She has starred in a number of TV miniseries based on his Tales of the City.
