Vince Vaughn and his wife aren't the only ones getting a baby for Christmas! Ali Larter gave birth to one of the last Sagittarius celeb kids of the season, son Theodore Hayes, early on December 20th and the new mom says he is the "perfect Christmas present."
Alanis Morissette and her husband Mario Treadway had their Capricorn baby boy, Ever Imre, on Christmas Day.
When calculating a birth chart, you need three pieces of information: the birth date, place, and time. The birth time and place help to determine the houses in a chart, but from a birth date alone you can determine what signs all of the planets fall into.* Without accurate birth times published for either baby, we cannot determine whether one baby's planets fall greatly in the first house, for example, as opposed to another baby, even one born on the same day but at a different time, who may have those same planets clustered in the 6th house instead.
Therefore, even though these babies were born five days apart, their charts are quite similar except for two very important planets: the sun and moon. Theodore was born when the sun was in the last part of Sagittarius and the moon in Gemini. These two signs tend to be seekers of truth in very different ways--Sagittarius seeking meaning through experience, and Gemini seeking truth through data, and both enjoying creative experimentation. The houses that these and the rest of his planets fall into would tell us more about the kinds of data and experiences Theodore will want to seek out in satisfying his curiosity and sense of adventure.
Ever Imre was born when the Sun had recently moved into Capricorn. Both children have other planets in Capricorn, including Mars, so they will display Capricorn traits such as being goal-oriented and practical, but Theodore, with his adventurous and sometimes naive Sagittarius traits and his impish, playful Gemini, may let his curiosity override his common sense far more often than little Ever, who may approach life more cautiously from the get-go.
If Ever was born on the earlier side of Christmas morning, he may have his moon in the sign of Leo, which would bless him with a generous (albeit demanding) heart and a desire to express himself boldly in the world. If he was born anytime after early morning, he is likely to have a Virgo moon, which would enhance the cautious, determined, and humble side of his Capricorn sun.
Family astrology is a fascinating subject; it's very common to find similar themes in the charts of families, especially between the sun, moon, and rising signs, such as a generational string of women with Pisces moons or suns, for example, and even more complex, repeated themes. If Mlle Kiddie were a betting woman, she would put her money on a Leo moon, since Alanis has Leo Rising!

*The moon moves very quickly so sometimes without a birth time, one cannot be sure which sign the moon was in since it may be in one sign in the morning and the next sign in the evening. While this is true with all planets, it happens much more frequently with the moon, since it changes signs about every 2 and a half days.
