Rooney Mara Pregnant, Anticipating Second Child with Joaquin Phoenix

Well, this ain’t a joke, folks. Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara are expanding their family.

Yep, you heard it right. The Joker star and the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo actress are expecting another bundle of joy. It’s been three years since they welcomed their son River into the world. This exciting news was reported by multiple outlets on Feb. 18.

Rooney flaunted her baby bump at the premiere of La Cocina. This happened at the Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin on Feb. 16. Dressed in a strapless black ballgown, the 38-year-old actress was seen cradling her growing belly as she strutted down the red carpet.

E! News, always on the ball, reached out to Rooney and Joaquin’s reps for a comment. But, no dice. They haven’t heard back yet.

Rooney and Joaquin have been a thing since 2017. That’s four years after they costarred in Her. They’ve been pretty hush-hush about their relationship, though. But in 2019, Joaquin gave us a little peek into their love story.

In a Vanity Fair interview, the 49-year-old actor confessed, “She’s the only girl I ever looked up on the internet.” He thought Rooney couldn’t stand him at first. Turns out, she was just too shy to ask him out. “We were just friends, email friends. I’d never done that. Never looked up a girl online.” How’s that for a plot twist?
