Stanley Tucci and his wife, Felicity Blunt have welcomed a baby boy into the world! Baby Matteo Oliver was born in London on Sunday 25th January – we just love his name, very sweet.
The Hunger Games actor released the news with a humorous announcement, telling US Weekly: “I believe he is mine. We are thrilled to welcome him to this cold, cruel world. We are all thrilled that he is here and healthy.”
Stanley is also a dad to three children with his wife, Kathyrn who passed away in 2009 from breast cancer. He has been married to Felicity, who is the actress Emily Blunt’s sister, since 2012.
Congratulations to the happy couple on their lovely new arrival!
We're delighted! Actor Stanley Tucci and wife Felicity Blunt are expecting a child together!
Stanley revealed the news in an interview yesterday. "I'm very excited to be a dad. It's incredible," said the 53-year-old.
The Hunger Games star met Felicity, sister of actress Emily Blunt, in 2006 during the filming of The Devil Wears Prada. They married during a secret ceremony in 2012 and this is their first child together.
Stanley said he thinks Felicity will be a "great" mother and admitted he has no preference for a girl or a boy. "I'm most excited to have a baby with Felicity and for the baby to be healthy… The sex is of no concern to me… The sex of the baby, that is." Cheeky!
Baby Tucci won't be short of a playmate anyway – Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski welcomed their daughter Hazel back in February.
And as for babysitters, Stanley already has three older children and two stepchildren with his late wife Kathryn who sadly died of breast cancer in 2009.
Congrats Stanley and Felicity!
