Fans and well-wishers of the celebrity couple rushed forward to convey their wishes and share happiness with the new parents: "Aww congratulations, what a great name! :)" one of the comments on Twitter read, while another one added: "omg congratulations to you guys love the name it's so pretty." 

Prior to his baby's birth, the "Supernatural" star urged fans to donate the gifts they were planning to buy for their baby to instead support a charity named "Hats off for cancer." Apart from that, on New Jersey convention's private Q&A with Jensen in May, he requested his fans not to post any pictures of his little one until the proud parents would take the initiative themselves.

Ackles met model/actress Harris during the shooting of short film "The Plight of Clownana". The couple dated for three years and got engaged in 2009. They tied the knot in 2010. Early this January, the couple confirmed pregnancy and Harris later showed off her baby bump at the 39th People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

Ackles, who started modeling as a toddler, shot to fame by appearing on NBC television network's soap opera "Days of Our Lives". He currently appears in the CW series "Supernatural". It has recently been baby time on the sets of Supernatural. Ackles' co-star Jared Padalecki, who plays the role of Ackles' brother, and wife Genevieve Cortese welcomed a baby boy named Thomas Colton in March 2012.

Physicists create tool to foresee language destruction impact and thus prevent it

There have been numerous cases of cultural changes throughout history. Either by imposition or assimilation, cultural traits are transmitted between neighbouring regions and often one replaces the original cultural traits of the other. Physicists Joaquim Fort, from the University of Girona (UdG), and Neus Isern, from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), are experts in modelling these phenomena by adequately representing a reality, as they have demonstrated with their previous projects.

Why do men prefer nice women?: Responsiveness and desire

People's emotional reactions and desires in initial romantic encounters determine the fate of a potential relationship. Responsiveness may be one of those initial "sparks" necessary to fuel sexual desire and land a second date. However, it may not be a desirable trait for both men and women on a first date. Does responsiveness increase sexual desire in the other person? Do men perceive responsive women as more attractive, and does the same hold true for women's perceptions of men? A study published in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin seeks to answer those questions.
