Rooney Mara & Joaquin Phoenix Welcome First Child Together

Rooney Mara & Joaquin Phoenix Welcome First Child Together

Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara are first time parents!

According to director Victor Kossakovsky, the couple welcomed a son just last month and have named him River.

Victor revealed the happy baby news during the 2020 Zurich Film Festival over the weekend during a Q&A session with the audience following a screening of Gunda. Joaquin is an executive producer on the film.

Joaquin and Rooney seem to have chosen the name River in honor of his elder brother, who passed away in 1993 from a drug overdose.

The couple met and started dating after working together on the 2013 film, Her.

Rooney and Joaquin went on to star in three other movies together in 2018: Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, Dominion and Mary Magdalene.

Rooney first sparked pregnancy rumors in May of this year, and has been spotted out several times after that, hiding her growing baby bump with the use of oversized clothing.
