Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach Are Expecting Their Second Child

Greta Gerwig revealed some exciting news on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, December 1. The actress-director revealed that she and her boyfriend Noah Baumbach are expecting their second child. She told Fallon and the crowd on the stage:

“I am pregnant!”

The audience erupted, and Fallon congratulated Gerwig for picking his program to share the news with. The Lady Bird director also said that she intended to announce her pregnancy on another occasion, but “no one cared.” She said that she was dressed in a manner that revealed “the secret,” but no one appeared to notice. Gerwig already has a three-year-old boy called Harold with her partner Baumbach.

Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig met in 2010.

While Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach first met on the set of his film Greenberg in 2010, the latter first saw her in Hannah Takes the Stairs, which she co-wrote and acted in 2007. After seeing her perform, Baumbach asked his agency to contact Gerwig and gave her a job in Greenberg starring Ben Stiller.

Jennifer Jason Leigh, Baumbach’s then-wife, also appeared in the film. The 53-year-old and Leigh divorced five months after the debut. Rumors began to circulate online that Gerwig had a role in the couple’s divorce, thus inspiring Marriage Story. However, Gerwig and Baumbach have often denied the claims, claiming that they met after their divorce was finalized. Noah and Greta collaborated on the film Frances Ha, which was released in 2012. Her performance in the film earned her a Golden Globe nomination. The couple co-wrote the picture together, and the project marked the beginning of their professional connection becoming amorous, however, neither side confirmed the claim.

The couple then worked together again in 2015 on Mistress America, which she co-wrote and co-produced with Baumbach. Gerwig co-starred with Lola Kirke in the film. The two continued to work together on other projects, although she denied being labeled Baumbach’s inspiration. In March 2019, the couple had their first child, Harold Ralph Gerwig Baumbach, after Gerwig kept her pregnancy a secret while filming Little Women. Six months later, she announced the birth of her son by appearing with him on the cover of Vogue Magazine.

Despite the fact that the couple has been together for many years, they believe that labeling their relationship is pointless. Gerwig revealed why none of the labels worked during an interview on The Late Late Show with James Corden, saying:

“‘Boyfriend’ implies that I just met him last week. The word ‘lover’ is repulsive, while the word ‘fiancé’ implies an impending wedding. As a result, none of it works.”

The duo had previously competed at the Oscars, with Noah with Marriage Story and Greta Gerwig with Little Women, but neither has allowed a little healthy competitiveness get in the way of their friendship. They are presently working on another movie as writers, Margot Robbie and Ryan Reynolds starring Barbie, which will be released in July 2023.
