Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara Welcome a baby boy named River

  • POSTED ON: September 30, 2020

Okay, so this is the third celebrity couple to announce the birth of their child in the last five days… It’s definitely raining kids out there!

One of Hollywood’s most reserved couples has reportedly announced the birth of their child, a baby boy. Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara recently welcomed their first son together, naming him River.

Russian Filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky, who directed Gunda, a documentary Phoenix executive produced, broke the news.

The couple named their son “River”, as a tribute to Phoenix's late older brother, who tragically died in 1993 at age 23.

The actor also gave a moving speech about him while accepting the Oscar for Best Actor earlier this year.

The couple has yet to confirm their son’s birth, which is something unlikely for this low-key couple. They kept their entire pregnancy a secret, until a well-known news organization reported that the couple was expecting in May.

They were rumored to be engaged in May 2019, after Mara was spotted with a big diamond ring on that ring finger.

Congratulations to the new parents!
