Debra Winger And Timothy Hutton Become Parents

April 30, 1987 GMT

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Actress Debra Winger and her actor husband Timothy Hutton delayed naming their first child for more than 24 hours, but finally decided Thursday on Emanuel Noah.

The 8-pound, 11-ounce boy, who arrived at 6:35 a.m. Wednesday, was doing fine Thursday, as was Miss Winger, said spokeswoman Pat Kingsley.

Ms. Kingsley had explained the delay in naming the baby by saying: ″They have a few options and they don’t want to rush it and decide prematurely. He has to live with it the rest of his life.″

It was the first child for the couple, who were married March 16, 1986.

The 21-inch baby has dark hair and blue eyes. ″There were no complications,′ ′ Ms. Kingsley said, declining to reveal where the child was born.

Miss Winger, 31, who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in ″Terms of Endearment,″ appeared in ″The Black Widow″ earlier this year and ″Legal Eagles″ with Robert Redford last year.

She rode to stardom on a mechanical bull in ″Urban Cowboy,″ made an overlooked appearance with Nick Nolte in ″Cannery Row″ and was swept off her feet by Richard Gere in ″An Officer and a Gentleman.″

She formally met Hutton at a Farm Aid benefit concert in the Midwest in September 1985, Ms. Kingsley said.

Hutton, 26, who won a best supporting actor Oscar for his role in ″Ordinary People,″ also starred in ″The Falcon and The Snowman,″ ″Taps″ and ″Iceman.″

He will star in two movies coming out this fall, ″Destiny″ and ″Made in Heaven,″ Ms. Kingsley said.
