Congratulations to Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale! The longtime partners just became first-time parents to a beautiful baby boy! Welcome to the world, Rocco!
Bobby Cannavale, 45, had something huge to announce when he visited The Late Show on Friday, February 5. His longtime girlfriend, Rose Byrne, 36, had just given birth to their son that Monday, February 1! Both mom and baby are happy and healthy, and the couple couldn’t be more excited about the arrival of little Rocco!
“I had a baby on Monday, yes,” Bobby told Late Show host Stephen Colbert. “You know, I didn’t do anything. We [men] don’t do anything and I’m so tired. I think I’ve gained 28 pounds since Monday. I mean, I’m not kidding you. Like, this jacket fit so well, like, last Thursday. But I’ve been eating so much.”
So funny! Bobby shared that both Rose and the baby are “doing great,” at that they named their first child Rocco. Stephen asked him if they named their son after Saint Rocco. “Actually, yeah, patron saint of the sick…pretty sure. Could be wrong. I’m tired,” Bobby joked. Poor thing! But you know that Rose has it far worse right now. She doesn’t have the time or luxury to go on Colbert right now!
Rose and Bobby tried to keep their pregnancy mostly private, but that had to end when her baby bump was too big not to notice! The first hints of a bump were seen on the Neighbors 2 set, which had a lot of people (including us) wondering if there was a big announcement on the way. In November, it happened!
We’re so happy for Rose and Bobby, who have been together since 2012. They’re so in love; Bobby called her “the love of my life” while accepting the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the 2013 Emmys for Boardwalk Empire. And now they’ve had their first child!
HollywoodLifers, help us send our best wishes to Rose, Bobby and Rocco in the comments!
