Hi Hanuman,

I'm a native speaker, not a teacher, so my explanations aren't too technical.

1) She was born a baby. This means she was born as a baby. It's tautological, because everyone is born as a baby. You could also say 'She was borne a baby,' where borne is the past participle of bear.

2) She birthed a baby. I don't think this is correct. I have seen birthed used very few times, and only in cases where it meant born (e.g. Dresden is a city birthed out of ashes).

3) She gave birth to a baby. This is correct.

4) He is born clever. This is a fragment of a sentence. A full sentence would be 'He was born clever' or 'One in ten children is born clever'. Here the function of born signifies that the person's intelligence is innate, and not acquired through studying.
