Actress Kirsten Dunst announced in March of this year that she would be welcoming her second child with her partner Jesse Plemons. The actress announced the news in a stunning spread in W Magzine that featured Kirsten in all her pregnant glory. Now, The Power of the Dog star has revealed that she welcomed her child four months ago.
In an interview with The New York Times, Kirsten revealed that she and Jesse welcomed a baby boy! They chose to name their second child James Robert. This time around, the couple seems to have chosen a more classic name compared to their first son named Ennis Howard. Kirsten and Jesse welcomed Ennis in 2018.
During her interview, the Bring It On star talked about her new baby and what it was like being a mom of two. “This is the newest guy, the Big Kahuna. He’s an angel, but he’s a hungry angel. And a heavy angel.” She shared that the four-month-old weighs about 18 pounds. On being home with her two kids, she shared that she is in a “really special place” and went on to explain, “I’m so tired, I haven’t slept through the night in four months. I’ve developed an eye twitch, too.”
Kirsten and Jesse met in 2015 on the set of the TV series Fargo. They portrayed a married couple on the show and found a bond with each other over their shared experiences as child actors. The couple became engaged in January of 2017 but have not yet tied the knot.
Congratulations to Kirsten and Jesse on the arrival of their second child! We wish their family all the best and hope Kirsten finds more restful nights ahead.
