The notoriously private couple have been engaged since last summer.
- Actors Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix are reportedly expecting their first child together, a source told Page Six.
- Mara and Phoenix originally met on the set of their 2013 film, Her, but didn’t begin a relationship until reuniting for the film Mary Magdalene in 2018. The pair became engaged last summer.
Congratulations are in order for Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix. According to Page Six, the Carol actress and the Oscar-winning actor are expecting their first child together.
The notoriously private couple have retained a relatively low profile following the end of awards season earlier this year and have spent the majority of their time at their home in Los Angeles amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis. Neither Mara nor Phoenix has yet to confirm the news. Their reps have also declined to comment.
Mara and Phoenix met on the set of the Spike Jonze–directed film Her in 2013 but did not begin a relationship until reuniting for the 2018 film Mary Magdalene. Soon after, the pair moved in together and became engaged in July 2019. Though they don’t often speak publicly about their relationship, Phoenix has commented on his admiration of his partner in interviews, and the two have accompanied each other on their press tours for their respective films, as well as on recent red carpets amid awards season.
“She’s the only girl I ever looked up on the Internet,” Phoenix admitted to Vanity Fair in October. “We were just friends, email friends. I’d never done that. Never looked up a girl online.”
