Jesse Eisenberg is going to be a dad! The ‘Social Network’ star and his longtime girlfriend Anna Strout are officially expecting their 1st child and we could NOT be more thrilled for the adorable couple! Get all the exciting details about Anna’s pregnancy here.
How exciting! Jesse Eisenberg, 33, and his girlfriend Anna Strout are about to become first-time parents, according to E! News, and we can only imagine how pumped the couple must be right now! The two have been together for many years, dating from 2002 to 2012 before temporarily splitting. But they reconnected right before Jesse headed to London to perform in the West End show The Spoils earlier this year.
They sweetly got back together after Jesse spent four months volunteering at a domestic violence shelter in Bloomington, Indiana, which Anna’s mother is the executive director of. There, he worked on a fundraising campaign with the University of Indiana and raised $500,000, which was enough money to pay off the shelter’s mortgage. Looks like he discovered that charity work is the best way into Anna’s heart!
Even still, Jesse has ALWAYS preferred to maintain a low profile when it comes to his dating life, telling The Guardian, “I was there for, like, personal reasons. For reasons I don’t want to bring up in an interview.” The couple ended up making their rekindled romance public when they were photographed at a basketball game in January, right after the New Year.
But although Jesse likes to keep his relationship private, it’s beyond obvious that he’s totally head-over-heels for Anna. In an interview with Seventeen magazine back in 2011, not only did he admit she was the only girl he’d ever been on a date with, but he also revealed what he loved about her.
“I find people who want to help other people to be the most interesting,” Jesse said at the time. “I come from a family of teachers, and my friends are teachers, often times in very difficult school situations. My job is so selfish and focused on my own vanity that I like to surround myself with people who are actually helping people throughout their day.” Aw!
And while we are so excited to find out more about Jesse and his unborn little one, judging by his history, he and Anna probably will be keeping her pregnancy on the down-low. But either way, we’re very happy for the couple and wish them the best of luck. Congrats again, you two!
