Some lovely baby news this morning! Hunger Games and America Beauty actor Wes Bentley has revealed he's become a father for the second time, with wife Jacqui Swedberg.
The couple welcomed their new daughter back in June but had kept things under wraps for four whole months, until Wes' rep finally confirmed the news to Us Weekly. Quite the achievement!
Wes and Jacqui have named their little one Brooklyn – we wonder what the Beckhams had to say about that?!
The pair are already parents to three-year-old Charles.
Before playing terrifying game maker Seneca Crane in the first Hunger Games film, Wes made a name for himself with his role as Ricky Fitts in the 1999 Oscar-winning American Beauty.
However an addiction to heroin and cocaine spanning ten years meant he was rarely in the spotlight afterwards. "I came to Hollywood and I got caught up in all the glitz and glamour of the nightlife,” he said in an interview about his decade-long battle with hard drugs, which he finally beat in 2009.
“All the stuff I had no idea about in Arkansas. In a way, it made me a little more prone to it. It was like looking behind the curtain. And I went behind the curtain and hung out.”
We're glad to hear Wes has moved on, and we wish the growing family all the best!
