45. Gave Birth to a Baby (Girl or Boy)
Has any human being ever given birth to a toddler? Adolescent? Pre-pubescent? Adult? Animal? No. We can get rid of the ‘baby’ in this phrase, as giving birth means having a baby human!
“On Wednesday, the French president’s wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy gave birth to a baby girl.”
“With Jimmy Howard and his wife Rachel celebrating the birth of a baby boy Sunday, the Wings called up Joey MacDonald on Monday morning.”
“She had hidden her pregnancy from her family and gave birth to a baby boy in the family’s bathroom.”
“After weeks of feverish rumour and speculation, French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy gave birth to a baby girl on Wednesday night, her second child and husband President Nicolas Sarkozy’s fourth.” (note, though, the use of the phrase in the headline…Also, there were TONS of stories from other major publications about Bruni’s birth that used this phrase, I just grabbed the first one.)
