Joaquin Phoenix, the lead actor of last year's blockbuster film 'Joker', and her fiance Rooney Mara, gave birth to a baby girl before marriage. According to US magazine, Russian filmmaker Viktor Kosakowski confirmed the birth of the first child of Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara during the film festival.
Speaking to the media at the screening of his documentary at the Zurich Film Festival, the Russian filmmaker said that Joaquin Phoenix could not attend the promotion of her film because she had given birth to a child. According to the Russian filmmaker, a son has been born to Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara, named River.
The Russian filmmaker did not specify when the baby was born to Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara and how the mother and baby are doing now. However, a post on a fan Instagram account named Rooney Mara confirmed on September 28 that the couple had given birth to a son.
Rooney Mara's fan Instagram account post shared photos of the romantic style of Joaquin Phoenix and the actress and also confirmed that the baby has been named River. Before the couple had their baby, it was reported in May this year that Rooney Mara was optimistic.
Although the news of Rooney Mara's pregnancy went viral in May, the actress refused to comment on the matter at the time and has not been seen at any event since. Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix were engaged a year ago in May 2019 and have been in a relationship for the past 4 years. Although Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara have been seen together several times, they have never openly acknowledged their relationship in the media.
In Hollywood, showbiz personalities do not usually bring relationships to the public and most couples live in a 'love in relationship'. Under this relationship, any adult man and woman can fulfill their sexual needs without getting married together and they can have children with each other's consent. Under the agreement, the couple can separate at any time and the two cannot take any legal action against each other on separation.
Even before Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara, many Hollywood celebrities have had children before marriage, and this is considered to be the norm.
