Sources have reported that a surprise baby has been born completely unbeknownst to the media prior to a few days ago. It's difficult when your on the media's radar, but Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach have just secretly welcomed their first child together into the world.
If you've never heard of the pair, Greta Gerwig is an American actress, director, playwright and screenwriter. Her partner, Noah Baumbach, is a successful writer and director in his own right. According to E! News, "Gerwig, 35, and Baumbach, 49, first met when she starred in his 2010 film, Greenberg," and the two have been collaborating ever since.
The 2018 Oscar nominee for Best Achievement in Directing and Best Original Screenplay for Lady Bird, Gerwig has been keeping a very big secret as she and Baumbach were spotted walking down the streets in Manhattan pushing a baby stroller casually talking, though sources report that both were looking very tired.
Rumor has it that the baby is a boy, but we can't yet confirm if that's true- especially after Gerwig's interest in promoting a mother-daughter bond in Lady Bird. In 2018, Gerwig told NPR,“I knew that I wanted to make something about a mother and a daughter, but I didn’t know what it was going to exactly end up being but I did have a hunch. And I had a hunch that the mother-daughter dynamic was something that would be infinitely interesting and also would feel both like the oldest story and new somehow".
Due to this, suspicions have been raised over the baby's gender since the new parents haven't publicly confirmed whether their baby is a boy or a girl. In saying that, however, Daily Mail states that Gerwig and Baumbach's rep confirmed to People on March 20th, 2019, that the baby is indeed a boy.
This baby is Gerwig's first child, whereas Baumbach has a nine-year-old son with ex-wife 57-year-old Jennifer Jason Leigh. A source told E! News that when the couple were spotted in Manhattan, "Noah was pushing and Greta was right next to him. They were bundled up in the chilly weather and they had a gray and white striped blanket draped over the stroller. It seems like the baby was sleeping because they were busy talking and didn't have to tend to the baby".
Our sincerest congratulations go to both Gerwig and Baumbach parents for their newest addition!
