Ewan McGregor, 50, and his new girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead, 36, met on the set of the Fargo series have a son together. The couple, who have never disclosed Mary Elizabeth’s pregnancy, announced the news of their baby on Sunday via Ewan’s eldest daughter Clara, who posted the news on Instagram.
Clara, 25, whose mother is the actor’s ex-wife Eve Mavrakis, with whom the separation has been tumultuous, shared a snap of herself cradling her baby brother in her arms as she congratulated her father, 50, and Mary, 36.
She wrote in the caption: “Welcome to the world little brother ?? Congratulations to my father and to Mary – this is the greatest gift”.
This announcement may seem surprising when the young woman reacted very badly in 2017 to the publication in the press of photos of her father kissing his partner on the screen. A few days later, Ewan McGregor announced that he was divorcing his wife with whom he had been in a relationship for 22 years. An ad that his daughters had taken very badly, multiplying negative publications on social networks.
In July 2018, Clara insulted Mary Elizabeth on social media after a fan of the actress tagged her in a photo of Ewan and Mary sharing a kiss at a Vanity Fair Oscars party.
In the caption of the post, the fan called Winstead “the most beautiful and talented woman in the world” – which Clara refuted.
“The most beautiful and talented woman in the world ??? Oh man, you’re all delusional. This girl is a trash :)” Clara wrote in the comment section of the article.
Since then, water seems to have flowed under the bridges. And Clara seems to have become close to her father’s new girlfriend.
Until then, Ewan Mc Gregor had 4 daughters. He is the actor’s first son.
This isn’t the first time Ewan has surprised fans with secret baby news, previously revealing in 2011 that he adopted a daughter – his daughter Anouk. Ewan and Eve also adopted Jamyan in 2006.
