Maya Rudolph just filed the birth certificate for her baby -- which is interesting because she gave birth A YEAR AGO.
According to to the document -- obtained by TMZ -- Maya and longtime partner Paul Thomas Anderson gave birth to a baby girl on Aug. 1, 2013 ... naming her Minnie Ida Anderson after Maya's mother, Minnie Riperton.
Everything was pretty much on the down low until the certificate was filed Tuesday in L.A. The reason -- Maya gave birth at home, so there was no hospital to record the birth.
In California ... birth certificates must be filed before the baby turns 1, so Maya and Paul got in just under the wire.
Happy birthday, Minnie!

Two days after giving birth ... Jwoww arrived home from the hospital Tuesday carrying her precious cargo -- but she let her fiance carry the baby.
Jwoww held tight to her breast-feeding pillow ... while fiance Roger Mathews toted their newborn daughter, Meilani, in a baby carrier.
They were greeted by "Jersey Shore" co-star Snooki ... who's preggo with her 2nd bambino.
Nice balloons, Snook.

My Baby's Name Is ...
7/13/2014 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jwoww's stubborn baby is now officially here ... one day after inducing labor, she gave birth Sunday to a baby whose name you'd probably hear at the shore ... but not the Jersey Shore.
Jwoww and fiance Roger Mathews named their daughter Meilani Alexandra Mathews ... the guidette weighed 7lbs, 13 ounces.
As we previously reported, some members of the reality star's family and friends flew out to Jersey for the occasion.
No word on whether any of her co-stars were on hand for the birth.
'Jersey Shore' Ronnie
Jwoww's Labor Induced
7/13/2014 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's only a matter of time now before Jwoww pushes a miniature guidette out of her lady parts ... at least according to "Jersey Shore" star Ronnie Magro.
Ronnie was leaving Boa with a friend Saturday night when he not only confirmed Jwoww's labor has been induced ... but the reality star also gave us props for being the first to report the news.
Our camera guy tries to come up with a possible name for the new baby ... but things get awkward.
Get This Baby Out of My Belly
7/12/2014 3:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jwoww is tired of waiting for her baby to pop out ... so the reality star made plans to induce labor.
Sources close to Jwoww tell us the 28-year old recently put the word out to her inner circle ... letting them know she'd squeeze her baby girl out this weekend -- artificially stimulated or not.
We're told some of her friends and fam rushed to Jersey to support the mom-to-be and fiance Roger Mathews ... and now everyone is patiently waiting to see what happens.
Our sources say it doesn't look like MTV cameras will film the actual birth.
Eva and Ryan

Either way you cut it ... Eva Mendes will give birth to an objectively beautiful baby ... whether it's a boy or a girl -- so concludes a noted forensic artist.
Joe Mullins -- a forensic artist for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children -- studied photos of Eva and Ryan and used computer technology to predict what the kid's gonna look like. Obviously not a precise science, but still fun to predict.
The sex doesn't matter ... the kid wins the lottery of looks. Period.
I Got Something to Hide
Ryan Gosling's Baby!
7/10/2014 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
So this is ironic ... Eva Mendes -- now the envy of every woman on the planet and a sizable number of men -- is going to gargantuan lengths to hide the fact that she's carrying Ryan Gosling's baby.
Eva was leaving a parking structure Wednesday in L.A. when she ran into a photog ... hours after news broke she's 7 months pregnant -- allegedly 7 months.
She went through contortions to hide the baby bump, using a Birkin bag, scarves and everything else within arms reach to obfuscate the money shot.
Wear it like a badge of honor, Eva.
It's Not My Kid
I'm Not Paying Child Support
7/5/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sherri Shepherd does not want anything to do with her unborn surrogate baby ... because she believes her estranged husband defrauded her into having the kid in the first place so he could get child support ... this according to multiple sources connected with the couple.
TMZ broke the story ... Sherri and her husband Lamar Sally each separately filed legal docs to end their marriage. The big complication -- a baby will be born this month to a surrogate who signed a contract with Sherri and Lamar.
Now our sources say ... the baby was conceived with Lamar's sperm, but NOT Sherri's egg.
Now here's where it gets tricky. We're told Sherri does not want custody or even to be considered a parent ... because she doesn't want to get stuck with massive child support payments.
Sherri wants a judge to rule she has no parental rights or responsibilities -- which would shut the door to child support. She claims Lamar defrauded her -- that he got her to sign on for a surrogate birth knowing full well he would divorce her and then nail her to the wall for child support.
Our Lamar sources say Sherri tried to get pregnant in vitro and when it didn't work she got deeply involved in the surrogacy process.
Another twist ... Sherri has filed for divorce in New Jersey and Lamar has filed in California. This is not a coincidence. We did some digging, and found New Jersey courts generally do NOT recognize surrogacy agreements, which means Lamar would probably be shut down. Not so in Cali.
I'm Not Pregnant
Second 'Glee' Star Hacked
7/4/2014 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lea Michele seemingly announced her pregnancy on Twitter this morning -- but moments later her rep debunked the news ... telling us the actress had been hacked.
As we previously reported ... Chris Colfer received similar treatment yesterday when his account tweeted saying he was let go from the show for personal reasons -- but it turned out to be the work of some internet bandit.
Maybe Glee123 isn't the strongest password.

Divorced, Married, Baby ...
ALL IN A WEEK!
6/9/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Take our word for it, you did not have as eventful of a week as Jeremy London.
London's wild seven-day stretch began a week ago Friday, when he finalized his divorce from wife Melissa Cunningham.
London was arrested in 2012 for alleged domestic violence ... he agreed to take anger management classes and in return the charges were dismissed.
Fast forward to Tuesday, when London married his girlfriend, Juliet Reeves. That would have been the highlight of his week ... if she didn't give birth to their son Wyatt just two days later.
Ginnifer Goodwin's Baby
The Kardashian Konnection
6/4/2014 11:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ginnifer Goodwin gave birth to a healthy baby boy last week ... and TMZ has obtained the birth certificate that reveals a tie-in to the first family of reality television.
According to the certificate, Goodwin and her "Once Upon a Time" co-star/husband Josh Dallas named their boy Oliver Finlay Dallas. Goodwin popped out little Oliver at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center ... the hospital to the stars.
But the birth certificate also revealed this nugget ... the baby was delivered by Dr. Paul Crane ... who made several appearances on "Keeping Up With Kardashians" because he was the doctor for both Kourtney and Kim during their pregnancies.
Oh, the things this man has seen.
