Josh Hartnett is having a baby with girlfriend Tamsin Egerton and will soon become a dad. The “Black Hawk Down” star is exciting to be a father, which will be his second child, according to USA Today.
Hartnett , 36, met British actress Egerton, 26, in 2011 on the set of The Lovers, but they didn’t start dating until much later. Josh and Tamsin were first spotted stepping out together in May 2013, both in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, and a fortnight later in Dublin, Ireland, when Hartnett traveled to visit his girlfriend while she filmed her movie Love, Rosie.
“It’s true and they are beyond thrilled,” the star’s rep confirmed to the outlet.Josh Hartnett baby comes after the couple developed a romance
Josh Hartnett’s baby comes after the couple developed a romance gradually from a friendship. They took things slow and have only recently opened up about their relationship.
“It was just a natural thing that happened,” a source said. “He said she was really nice. They seem to just really enjoy each other’s company. And he thinks she’s gorgeous, of course.”
Hartnett has quite a reputation for dating co-stars. Prior to Egerton, Josh dated Julia Stiles, Kirsten Dunst and Scarlett Johansson, all of whom he worked with on movies.
“I think it’s a respectable way of going about it,” the actor said back in April. “I’ve met very important people in my life doing films. Sometimes that had consequences that were just awful for everybody involved. Some were fantastic all the way through. Everybody makes mistakes dating people they work with,” he added.
Hartnett once said that dating co-stars hasn’t always been successful. But Josh did give a hint that his relationship with Egerton was shaping up well.
“I’d have to get a car that’s safe for my kid,” he said, when talking about the kinds of things he needs to earn money to pay for. “I don’t have a kid yet, but that’s the idea coming into my head these days,” he revealed.
Clearly, working with Egerton was one of the more “fantastic” experiences since Josh Hartnett will soon have a baby.
