Joaquin Phoenix & # 39; welcomed his first child with his fiancée Rooney Mara a month ago … and named the boy after his late brother River & # 39;
Joaquin Phoenix has reportedly welcomed his first child with his fiancée Rooney Mara, a boy named after his late brother River Phoenix.
Director Victor Kossakovsky spilled the beans at the 2020 Zurich Film Festival after a screening of the film Gunda, on which Joaquin was executive producer.
He made the news during a weekend Q&A after being asked how he involved the new father in the film: "He just had a baby, by the way … a beautiful son named River."

Joaquin, 45, comes from a family of actors including brother Rain, 47, the Liberty sisters, 44, Summer, 41, and late brother River, who tragically died of a drug overdose in October 1993 at the age of 23 .
River died at the height of his career, with memorable roles in Stand By Me (1986), Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade (1989), and Gus Van Sant & # 39; s My Own Private Idaho (1991) already under his belt.
Joaquin recently spoke for 60 minutes about River's legacy in a rare interview with Anderson Cooper.
He revealed to Cooper how River showed him the movie Raging Bull, which led him to become an actor: "I think it just … awakened something in me. And suddenly I could see it through his eyes.
In Raging Bull, De Niro meets a girl between a chain link fence. And he, you know, shakes her little finger and it's like that beautiful little detail, it's that wonderful moment. And I think that in a way, I'm always looking for it. & # 39;
He and Rooney, 35, didn't officially announce the birth of their firstborn, but they haven't confirmed their pregnancy at all.
A source reported on Page 6 in May that the couple had been together for about six months right before she started showing off her baby bumps during outings.
Rooney started dating her Her (2013) star in late 2016, and they later played together in Don & # 39; t Worry, He Ain't Going Far On Foot and Mary Magdalene, which both premiered in 2018.
The animal rights activists live in the Hollywood Hills with their two dogs, Soda and Oskar, and their engagement was confirmed last July.
