Tom Hardy and his wife rang in 2019 after quietly welcoming a son last month (Dec18).
The Venom star became a dad again with Peaky Blinders actress Charlotte Riley over the holidays, but the pair has kept the news close to its chest.
“The couple are over the moon with the new addition to the family,” a source tells The Sun. “Friends are already saying that the baby boy looks exactly like Tom.
“They’ve been laying low over the festive period so they can get used to having a busier household and adjusting to the needs of a newborn.”
The super-private British stars are already parents to a three-year-old daughter, who they have never publicly named. Speaking of names, Tom and Charlotte apparently chose a unique nod to Hollywood for their newborn, naming the tot Forrest, an homage to Tom Hanks’ role in 1994 classic Forrest Gump, according to insiders.
The couple has yet to release an official statement on the birth. Tom has previously explained why he is determined to keep his family out of the spotlight, citing problems in public with constant photographing as one of the main reasons.
“I can see people’s behaviour, I can see when a camera’s coming, I can see when a phone is moving, I can see people’s body language. There is no difference between that and a weapon, the hyper-vigilance,” Tom told Esquire magazine in August (18). “It’s just odd. I’m cool with that. But (pictures of my) kids are a f**king no. They really are.”
Tom and Charlotte met for the first time on the set of 2009 British TV film Wuthering Heights and married in 2014. Her second pregnancy was announced last summer (18).
Tom is also father to another son Louis, 10, from a previous relationship.
