Almost two years ago, Joseph Gordon-Levitt – the preteen crush of many – became a dad for the first time when his not-a-famous-person wife Tasha McCauley gave birth to a son. A few months ago, JGL and Tasha were seen walking around Beverly Hills and she appeared to be pregnant. Joseph and Tasha try to keep their life private, so there was no standard Clearblue announcement. Well, his rep has confirmed to People that their second baby has been born.
In true private people fashion, the announcement is coming long after the actual day it happened. According to Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s rep, their second son was born way back in June. No other details are known. And since Joseph has made it very clear in the past that he and his wife aren’t about that, then “JGL has second baby son” is all we’re getting.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of those people who has really followed-through on his promise to let his kids live a private life. I can see two benefits to that. One, because he’ll never have to deal with thousands of strangers’ parenting opinions on social media. I’m sure having that one relative who emails him about the dangers of plastic deli spoons and hidden toxins in animal crackers is enough. Two, his kids will never see a People magazine cover from the week of their birth and curse him out for putting them on there while they still looked like a wrinkly drowsy little raisin. “Are you serious? Don’t tell me that was the best picture of me to show millions of people.”
