When I hear an actor is dating a “24-year-old lingerie model” my sight automatically switches to Side Eye Mode. But I’m willing to give 28-year-old Nicholas Hoult the benefit of the doubt in this case. People reports that Nicholas and aforementioned girlfriend of about a year, Bryana Holly, just had a baby. It’s irrefutable proof that the adorable little boy from About A Boy is all grown up, in case you somehow missed Nick’s very successful puberty and subsequent manly hotness. Hugh Grant must be so proud!
People says Nick is “notoriously private” and only confirmed his relationship with Bryana once, in an interview back in November. In it, he only managed to say some boring shit about letting her “put her stuff wherever she likes”. I guess she feels the same, only by “stuff,” she means baby batter, and by “anywhere” he likes, she means in her bread maker. That interview is pretty much the only public record of their relationship. There are no pictures of them together on either of their Instagram pages. A source says that they kept the baby news “under wraps” but are “so happy and excited”. Maybe dating over-sharer Jennifer Lawrence has made Nick gun shy.
Bryana, who is American, didn’t post any baby bump pictures on her Instagram either. People only says that Nicholas and Bryana “welcomed a child” so they could’ve procured it by other means.
Nick’s next role, other than newly minted Zaddy, will be playing J.R.R. Tolkien in the movie Tolkien. He’s also going to be in X-Men: Dark Phoenix which comes out next year.
It’s not often you see a young actor go from this:
… within such a short span. I tried to find a picture from his awkward stage and this was the best I could come up with.
All he had to do was stop listening to Oasis and get his hair and brow situation sorted out. We should all be so lucky.
