It has been confirmed that actor of Fantastic Beasts and his wife Hannah Bagshawe have welcomed their second addition to the family on March 10! As fans may already know, the lovely couple has a daughter as well.
The first child’s name is Iris Mary, and she was born in June of 2016.
Not too long after they welcomed the daughter, the actor opened up about being a dad, even though he usually likes to keep his private life under wraps.
‘I do not think anything can prepare [you]. The amazing thing’s everything that everyone tells you beforehand – which is all cliché – is true. You have heard it all before, and yet when you are experiencing it, it really feels like the very first time, and you suddenly start telling everyone these things as if they are completely new and original thoughts. And they’re like, ‘Yeah that is the cliché.’’
Eddie went on to gush about fatherhood, saying: ‘But all the things … different parts of your heart opening … it is really extraordinary. There is this amazing thing with children – whenever you are having a bit of a tired moment or something, it is like she is always just one step ahead of you, smiling you along. It is great.’
Not too long ago, the talented actor who won an Academy Award back in 2015 for his role as Stephen Hawking in the film Theory of Everything, also opened up about the famed genius’ passing.
‘We’ve lost a truly beautiful mind, an astonishing scientist and the funniest man I’ve ever had the honor to meet. My love and thoughts are with his extraordinary family.’
Congratulations on the new addition to the family, Eddie and Hannah!
