Elijah Wood wowed his fans the other day.
During an interview with WSJ.Magazine, the actor said that two children were already waiting for him at home – 3-year-old son Evan and a 14-month-old daughter, whose name he did not disclose.
Before that, he not only did not announce the appearance of his second child, but did not even mention that his beloved, 42-year-old Mette-Marie Kongsved, was pregnant again.
And now, more than a year after the birth of his daughter, he decided to tell the whole world that he became a father for the second time.
As Wood said, he is completely delighted with his fatherly duties, performing them with great pleasure.
He said that it was not at all difficult for him to get up at night to the baby, while she was very tiny. But even now he wakes up early in order to prepare breakfast for his children, which he really likes.
As for the question of why he hid the birth of his daughter for so long and still has not published a single photo of his children, Elijah said that he considers himself not at all a public person. He does not like the idea of sharing the details of his personal life with the entire world.
By the way, when his son Evan was born, they also learned about this far from immediately, but only after the previously pregnant Mette-Marie was photographed already without a protruding belly.
At the same time, Wood’s romance with Kongsved was also discovered very late – only two years after it began.
As it turned out later, they met and fell in love on the set of the film I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore back in 2016.
He played one of the main roles in this project, and she was the producer. However, the fact that they are a couple became known only in 2018, after the actor and his beloved appeared together in Pasadena holding hands.
At the same time, a rumor spread that Elijah got engaged to Mette-Marie, because a ring appeared on her hand, very similar to an engagement ring. However, the fact that he is engaged, Wood has not yet confirmed.
