Edward Norton and fiancée Shauna Robertson are now happy parents. The very media-shy couple have been together for almost 8 years, and are engaged as of 2011, Us Weekly reports.The magazine is also the one to break the happy news, though a rep for either is yet to confirm it officially.
“Edward Norton and his fiancée, Shauna Robertson, welcomed a healthy baby boy in March, multiple sources tell Us Weekly exclusively,” the mag writes.
The two have been engaged since 2011 and have been living their life out of the spotlight. They are so careful about not letting details of their private life get out in the press that they managed to keep the news of the pregnancy a secret until last month.
Shortly afterwards, Shauna gave birth, the publication writes.
“The two are ‘thrilled and excited for parenthood,’ an insider says. Norton – known for his scene-stealing roles in Primal Fear, American History X, Kingdom of Heaven and Moonrise Kingdom – has never publicly addressed his engagement, nor has he spoken of Robertson's pregnancy,” Us notes.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to his true fans, though.
Though he’s a highly respected and admired actor, he’s never quite played the celebrity game, having managed to draw a very sharp line between his career and his personal life, which he never crosses.
In one of his older interviews on the topic of fame and how he’s dealing with so much media exposure, Edward said he could not even think a day would come when it would get too much for him.
“If I ever have to stop taking the subway, I'm gonna have a heart attack,” he said.
He’s definitely keeping his feet firmly on the ground.
Congratulations to the new parents, and rest assured you’ll find out more about this here, assuming other details emerge online.
