Kirsten Dunst Secretly Welcomed Her Second Baby & She Just Revealed His Name

It appears that Kirsten Dunst is now a mother of two!

The actress just revealed in an interview with The New York Times that she secretly welcomed a baby boy four months ago. She joked, “This is the newest guy, the Big Kahuna...I’m so tired, I haven’t slept through the night in four months.”

Dunst also revealed the baby's name: James Robert. This is the second child she has had with fiancé Jesse Plemons. The pair have been dating since 2016 and they got engaged the following year. In May of 2018, the pair welcomed their oldest son, Ennis Howard, who has now officially become a big brother.

The Spider-Man star originally revealed that she was pregnant with a second child back in March, when she posed for a spread in W magazine and showed off her growing baby bump.

Dunst spoke more with the NYT about the newest addition to her family, saying, “He’s an angel, but he’s a hungry angel. And a heavy angel.” Raising a child is hard enough, but Dunst has been doing a lot of it on her own more recently, given that Plemons has been shooting for the new Martin Scorsese film Killers of the Flower Moon.

And while Dunst is (understandably) tired, she also joked, “I’ve developed an eye twitch, too. Yeah, I’m in a really special place.”

But as Dunst enjoys her maternity leave for a while, fans can look forward to her new movie, The Power of the Dog, which had its premiere at the Venice Film Festival and is set to hit theaters on November 17. The actress actually got to star alongside Plemons in the film, and the real-life couple are romantically entwined in the movie as well. (Talk about a fun job.)

Welcome to the world, baby James!
