Guy Pearce and Carice van Houten welcome a baby boy
Guy Pearce and Carice van Houten are now parents, The Times has confirmed — and their first-time baby announcement is equal parts cute and quirky.
“A cute little package arrived and told us his name’s Monte Pearce,” the “Memento” actor tweeted Monday. “We think we’re gonna keep him. Placenta smoothie anyone?”
Aww! And, um, eww …
Aussie actor Pearce, 48, and Van Houten, who turns 40 next week, worked together in 2015 on the western thriller “Brimstone.”
They sparked relationship rumors early this year when they were photographed grocery shopping together in Los Angeles, E! News reported. The romance apparently started about a year after Pearce’s January 2014 split with Kate Mestitz, his high school sweetheart, following 18 years of marriage.
