Paul Bettany gushes about his “beautiful” daughter & his “amazing” wife


I’m including some photos of Paul Batteny at the 24 Hour Plays on Broadway, which had some kind of photo call on Monday – Paul Bettany posing with Megan Fox? Profoundly odd. Those are the photos where Paul is wearing some glasses with blue lenses. He looks good in glasses usually, but these blue lenses make him look… off. Weird. Wrong. But let me be clear – I would still hit it. Hard. I would just make him take off those fug glasses.

While he was doing press for the 24 Hour Plays, Paul spoke to Us Weekly about his newborn daughter Agnes Lark, and his wife Jennifer Connelly. He’s just so sweet.

Paul Bettany is one proud papa! Jennifer Connelly and her hubby welcomed baby Agnes in May, and Bettany, 40, couldn’t be happier with their family’s newest addition.

“She’s great. She’s beautiful,” the actor gushed to Us Weekly Monday at Montblanc’s 24 Hour Plays on Broadway in NYC. “I have two boys who adore her. We’ve been blessed by a seven year gap.” (Connelly has a 14-year-old son, Kai, from a previous relationship, while she and Bettany have an 8-year-old son, Stellan, together.)

“[Agnes] is so lovely,” the Margin Call star said. “With my oldest, we play a lot of guitar together. With my youngest, at this point, it really is changing her diaper.”

So what makes Connelly, 40, such a wonderful mom? “[Being a parent] needs to be the biggest focus of your life,” her hubby told Us. “And it absolutely is the most important, biggest focus of my wife’s life. She is amazing at it. It’s not fake. Everyone says that, but it’s actually really true. It’s the most important thing in her life.”

Hand to God, if Jennifer and Paul ever split up, I will no longer believe in love. They just seem like they have a really solid partnership and marriage, and like they truly adore each other. Plus, they’re both sexy as hell. They make me believe that some people do find their equals, and that some marriages really do work. Sigh…

By the way, Paul’s career might be taking a turn away from film work – he’s just signed on to do a pilot for Showtime! The pilot is called Masters of Sex, and it’s about “influential sexual education researchers Masters and Virginia Johnson.” Paul Bettany, PhD in Sexy Times. Well done.

    Love him! I think he and Jennifer have a very solid marriage. They aren’t your typical celebrity couple (not desperate for publicity).

  2. VV says:

    That picture with Fox IS weird but made infinitely better with the inclusion of “Kenneth the Page”. I don’t even know the actor’s real name…he’ll always just be Kenneth!

  3. GoodCapon says:

    Such a lovely couple!

  4. El Kiddo says:

    Jennifer really have this lovely, lovely, lovely glossy hair. I heart her hair. I heart the both of them together, best of luck guys!

  5. Boo says:

    That Australian shepherd (I think) is one gorgeous dog!

    They are a cute couple. I like them both, though Jennifer’s slow-talking can be irksome.

  6. Girl says:

    They sound like really sweet people and he clearly adores her. Very nice to hear.

    He looks a bit strange in that top pic though. Like he isn’t wearing any pants or something.

    Is that Megan Fox? All the work done on her face makes her look Asian. Is plastic surgery supposed to make you look like a different race?

  7. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    The dude in the red shirt looks like he could be Tom Cruises geeky younger brother.

  8. Schnauzers!!!! says:

    LOL That pic with Megan fox looks like he took his daughter to a play or something.

  9. DeeVine says:

    I would gush too if my wife was Jennifer Connelly

  10. dorothy says:

    This is what every couple aspires to be like. What a great family. What a great husband / dad.

  11. the original bellaluna says:

    J’adore! How sweet of him. Le sigh.

    Boo – If memory serves, that’s a Blue Merle Aussie alright.

  12. jc126 says:

    I love seeing pics of this family, but just can’t believe they named their little one Agnes. Ugh. Lark is a great name, though.

  13. Raven says:

    Love him! He’s hot, smart, sweet and loyal. And he can act, too. Seems like such a great family, and a solid couple. Love the beautiful dog, too.

  14. Erin says:

    Beautiful couple and family! Nothing sexier than a man who knows his family’s worth :)

  15. Anon73 says:

    wow — his daughter IS a stunner !!! she’s like a natural non-plastic surgery version of Meghan Fox. which makes her gorgeous.

    i really like this couple, they are both good actors, so low key, they seem normal, it takes that in hollywood to last. no one is complaining that he is talking in great regards to his partner and children, they are an important part of his life.

  17. NM9005 says:

    I adore Connelly, ever since Requiem, I’m seriously in love with her so I don’t want to know that much about their life together because it ruins the magic. She and Paul are a match made in heaven so please keep it authentic and don’t talk too much about it, otherwise when they split it’s another dream crushed (yes I’m nuts =D).

    She needs to in more films, I get a feeling that not many good scripts are coming her way and that’s a damn shame

  18. Theresa says:

    I love them as a couple and they have beautiful children together. But mostly I love that they have an Australian Shepard, I have one too, mine is a red merle, the most beautiful and smartest dogs ever. I am not one usually to gush over celebrities, but I do so like this family and I hope that they succeed, like in the Paul Newman/Joanne Woodward kind of way!

    His styling in these photos reminds me of Niles Crane from Frasier….
