Nicholas Hoult Talks About Being a Father, Keeping Child's Gender a Secret

Nicholas Hoult wears a unique hat on the cover of ES Magazine‘s new issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 29-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On becoming a father and why he won’t reveal his child’s gender: “And having a baby puts you in this place where you go, oh, okay, this human is going to change a lot… It makes you value time differently, which is why I talk very quickly in interviews now, because I need to get home to them. [The choice of pronoun is deliberate: Hoult is keeping the child’s gender secret, at least for now.] Someone will find out soon enough and that’s fine, no big deal, but for now it’s my own precious little thing and I’m keeping it.”

On working alongside ex Jennifer Lawrence on the set of X-Men: “It’s pretty similar to Skins, we’re a big family, we’ve been doing those movies since we were 20 years old. As much as the Skins crowd grew up together, the X-Men crowd really grew up together. It’s been a good eight, nine years making those movies. We’ve all got to get along, we’ve all got to have fun. The really beautiful thing about this last film is that [writer and director] Kim Berger has given me somewhere nice and new to experiment and go with the character. Which is cool.”

The full interview appears in this week’s edition of ES Magazine, which is available now.

    I think it’s supposed to be Simon Kinberg, not Kim Berger. Lol

  • nicpace

    man, I thought he had a good head on his shoulder as I am a fan of him but getting some girl pregnant like that, that’s a disappointment for sure.

  • A Bless

    His kid’s gender is literally on Wikipedia.

  • KS_in_TP

    YES! This is literally the most I’ve ever read about this guy. He holds zero interest to me, and now thanks to this extraordinary display of arrogance and pretense — even less. What’s less than zero? Negative zero (-0).

  • KS_in_TP

    Dude, nobody gives a shit. You are literally NOT that big of a deal.

  • dee

    um, they have a boy ??? we know that???

    Stop pretending to be deep, you accidentally got some young model you were hooking up with pregnant.
