The "Scream" star revealed she was pregnant with the baby of her actor partner, J.J. Feild, earlier this year but stayed mum about the summer birth. Campbell and Feild were photographed cooing over an infant while enjoying a day at the beach in August, prompting rumors she had become a mother, and now she has confirmed she's the mother of a 5-month-old son.

Campbell reveals she struggled to name the boy because she wanted him to have an uncommon moniker.

She tells "The Talk," "I like having a unique name -- it's (my mother's) maiden name, Neve -- and not a lot of people have it. It's nice having something special and different, and so I wanted something like that for our son. ... We looked through a lot of books and ... we decided that we'd wait and see and meet him and then decide."

The pair came up with five options, but after coming face-to-face with the newborn, they made a decision on the spot: "When he was born we realized we could only remember one and that was Caspian, so it seemed like it was right."
