Back in January, we learned that Jeremy Renner had knocked up his ex-girlfriend, a woman we soon discovered was a 22-year-old Canadian model named Sonni Pacheco (allegedly). I believe she is the woman in these photos (taken in August 2012). Apparently, Jeremy was fooling around with her for a while, and when she became pregnant, he moved her into his home (or his guest house) where she lived quite comfortably with Jeremy and Jeremy’s business partner and BFF. I heard lots of rumors that Sonni gave birth back in February, but Us Weekly says it just happened last week…? And now Jeremy has taken the time to confirm everything, including his baby daughter’s name!
Jeremy Renner is tackling his most challenging — and most rewarding! — role yet: fatherhood! The two-time Academy Award nominee and his ex-girlfriend welcomed a baby girl on Thursday, March 28, two sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.
Update: The actor’s rep confirms the birth of baby Ava Berlin Renner. “They are beyond thrilled,” the spokesperson says. “Mother and daughter are doing great.”
The Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters actor told Eva Longoria about his baby news at the Golden Globes on Jan. 13, as exclusively reported in the Jan. 28 issue of Us Weekly. Renner, 42, was overheard saying, “‘I’m going to fly in when her water breaks,’” two witnesses revealed. “Then Eva said, ‘I’m so blown away.’”
The Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol star put his ex-girlfriend up in his L.A. home as they awaited the arrival of their firstborn. “They used to date but it wasn’t serious,” an insider explained, adding that Renner was “being ultra-secretive about it, but she has been going on about her life and not hiding it.”
Says a pal, “Jeremy will make a great dad!”
Ava Berlin Renner. Ava Renner. Call me crazy, but I kind of like it. I wonder if Sonni picked it out or if Jeremy had a say. I feel like his input might have been the “Berlin”? He seems like the kind of dude who suggests “Berlin” as a name. I’m not disrespecting the Berlin name – it pairs surprisingly well with Ava. And before now, I never realized how much I like the last name “Renner”. It’s a good name! Anyway, congrats to Jeremy and Sonni.
