(AP Photo/Gary Sussman, File) (Newser) – The daughter of Christopher Reeve has had her first child, and USA Today thinks the boy's name is "one of the sweetest tributes of the year." It's Christopher, of course. Christopher Russel Reeve Givens, to be exact, reports People. He is the child of Alexandra Reeve Givens, 31, and Garren Givens, 33. “He was named after his grandfathers on each side, two very important role models for Garren and Alexandra,” says a family rep. Mom is a senior counsel in the Senate and Dad runs the Presidential Innovation Fellows program for the White House.
