Kirsten Dunst Reportedly Gives Birth to First Child With Fiancé Jesse Plemons

A baby boy!


Congratulations are in order for Kirsten Dunst, who reportedly just welcomed her first child with fiancé Jesse Plemons. Though representatives of the couple have not confirmed the news, multiple sources tell People that the 36-year-old actress gave birth to a healthy baby boy over the weekend.

Rumors of Dunst’s pregnancy first surfaced in December 2017, and she later confirmed the news in January 2018 with a very pregnant appearance in the Fall/Winter portrait series for Rodarte, a fashion brand founded by her friends, sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy, who will also design her wedding dress.

The new addition is just the first of many exciting life events for Dunst and Plemons in 2018. The two, who began dating in 2016 after playing a married couple during season two of the FX series Fargo, became engaged in January 2017 and were expected to marry last month (though with a baby on the way, the ceremony may have been pushed back a bit). Whenever the two are ready to walk down the aisle, it’s sure to be a fun affair. “I never thought I was that person who’d have a Pinterest board. I’m like doing all of that, pinning things,” Dunst said in an appearance on Live with Kelly & Ryan. “It’s really fun, and because we create it together from the beginning, it’s a really nice thing to do together. It’s going to be so personal and fun. We’re having a really good time.”

Marriage isn’t the only thing Dunst has been gushing about lately, either; she’s also talked about how excited she is to become a mom. In June 2017, she opened up about the idea of raising a family with Plemons. “It’s time to have babies and chill,” she said in an interview with Marie Claire U.K.
