Congratulations to Jesse Eisenberg and his long-term girlfriend Anna Strout! The couple have reportedly welcomed their first child together – a baby boy. According to E! News, Jesse and Anna were pictured strolling through New York City earlier this week, with their new addition in tow. Reports that Jesse was to become a first-time dad surfaced at the end of last year.
The actor, 33, and his girlfriend Anna started dating in 2002 but called it quits in 2012. During their break, Jesse was in a two-year relationship with actress Mia Wasikowska, his co-star in The Double. In December 2015, Jesse and Anna rekindled their romance. They were spotted at a basketball game the month after, seeming to confirm their relationship.
Jesse and Anna dated for ten years
Although notoriously private, Jesse – who was nominated for an Oscar for his performance as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network – has previously spoken about his long-term love, praising Anna for the work she undertakes to raise money for domestic violence shelters. "I find people who want to help other people to be the most interesting," he told Seventeen magazine. "I come from a family of teachers, and my friends are teachers, often times in very difficult school situations."
Jesse was most recently pictured out and about on Sunday
The Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice actor also spent four months volunteering at a domestic violence shelter in Bloomington, Indiana. He managed to raise £400,000 to pay off the shelter's mortgage. Anna's mother is the executive director of the shelter. At the time, Jesse said that he preferred not to talk about his private visit. "I was there for, like, personal reasons. For reasons I don't want to bring up in an interview," he told The Guardian.
Unsurprisingly, Jesse hasn't commented on his baby news. The actor was most recently spotted on Sunday, attending the opening night of The Play That Goes Wrong solo.
