Rashida Jones and Ezra Koenig Secretly Welcomed a Baby Months Ago: Report
Congratulations are in order for Rashida Jones and Ezra Koenig, but they are extremely belated. (Sorry.)
The star and her Vampire Weekend boyfriend reportedly welcomed their first child together last month on Aug. 22, but somehow everyone missed it. Jones's rep didn't return InStyle's request for confirmation.
According to E! News, they welcomed baby boy Isaiah Jones Koenig, but the fact that we knew nothing of this is perfectly in character for the couple. They've preferred to keep their romance pretty private. In fact, the only evidence we have of their coupledom is a few photos taken at the Sundance Film Festival last year after rumors flew around about their relationship.
Jones hasn't made any public comments about the news, but she has talked about how not being a mom didn't weigh on her. She told The Guardian back in 2014 that she was cool with it, though it was a process to get there.
"I had the full princess fantasy: the white horse, the whole being saved from my life, which is ridiculous. What do I want to be saved from? My life's great!" she said at the time. "But it's just this weird thing that's been hammered into my head culturally: that's the only way to succeed, that's the only thing that counts for a woman. I'm happy, but the fact that I'm not married and don't have kids — it's taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don't feel like I'm some sort of loser."
She definitely doesn't need a knight on a white horse. It's good to hear she's happy with her life, both before and after baby. Congrats to the couple!
