Don't get too excited - it's only a picture of baby feet. Cute, tiny baby feet, however, so it's almost as good as the real thing.
Yesterday, actor Norman Reedus took to Instagram to share the very first photo of his baby daughter with partner Diane Kruger. But the notoriously private new dad kept things mysterious when the only image he allowed the public to see was that of her (and his!) feet.
Ten perfect tiny toes. That's all we're allowed - and according to her mom, she's hoping that's all we're going to get - at least for now. On January 8, Kruger took to her own Instagram to vent her frustrations over what she deemed was a breach of her family's privacy, when her, Reedus, and their young daughter were photographed through a window.
"We were just tagged in these paparazzi pictures of me and our daughter," she said, sharing a censored photo of one of the published images. "These pictures were taken without our consent and expose a vulnerable and innocent baby."
Kruger went on to request that these photos be removed and added that her daughter's privacy and safety are very important to her.
"We are just like any parent wanting the very best for our child," she said. "Thank you for your support."
Kruger and Reedus have been linked since 2015 when they first met on the set of their movie, Sky. Kruger was still with her longtime love, Joshua Jackson, 40, at the time. Jackson coincidentally also starred in the film, but it was Reedus who played Kruger's love interest.
It didn't take long for the rumour mill to start working overtime, with reports surfacing in December of that year that Kruger was cheating on Jackson with Reedus. In July 2016, Kruger and Jackson officially split after being together for over a decade, and in December of that year, Kruger was spotted attending Reedus' photography exhibit in Paris.
By March 2017, the cat was out of the bag after being snapped together kissing and their romance was all but confirmed. They made it red carpet official at the 2018 Golden Globes and by May, there was big baby news to report.
There is a reason Kruger seems to be on the defensive of her personal life these days. Following her split from Jackson, she was the subject of scrutiny which caused her to want to become even more private.
"I will never talk about my relationship ever again," she said. "I feel like I share enough of my life with everyone. Some things have got to stay more concealed now."
The baby girl, whose name we do not yet know, was born in October of 2018 and is the first child for Kruger, 42. Reedus, 50, is a dad for the second time. He shares a 19-year-old son, Mingus, with his ex, model Helena Christensen.
