Actors Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara are reportedly expecting their first child together. Rooney, 35, is thought to be up to six months along in her pregnancy.
Joaquin and Rooney have kept their relationship out of the public eye. The couple met on the 2013 Spike Jonze film Her but did not begin dating until they reunited on the set of the film Mary Magdalene in 2018, where Rooney played the role of Mary Magdalene and Joaquin was cast in the role of Jesus. The couple reside together in a home in Hollywood Hills.
The couple have been keeping a low profile during the pandemic. It has been noted that when Rooney is spotted in public, she is wearing baggy clothing, likely to hide her growing baby bump. The last time Rooney was pictured, she was seen visiting her sister, Kate Mara, who welcomed her first child late last May, for her first Mother’s Day. Rooney was wearing a baggy sweatshirt and carrying a bouquet of flowers and a small gift bag.
Joaquin and Rooney reportedly became engaged in July of 2019. Rooney was seen numerous times wearing an engagement ring. The couple is expected to welcome their first child together this summer. We wish them all the happiness as they prepare for their bundle of joy!
