Rose Byrne & Bobby Cannavale welcomed son Rocco Cannavale last week


Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale really fly undercover as a couple – even their fans might not even realize that they’re together and have been since 2012, and most people didn’t even realize that Rose got knocked up last year. They’re actually a great study in celebrities going undercover without even hiding anything. They would talk about each other in interviews, they would walk red carpets together and media outlets reported on her pregnancy, but Bobby and Rose are so low-key, I think most people just forgot.

Anyway, Rose gave birth to a Cannavale Baby one week ago. Bobby announced the birth when he appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. They had a boy and they named him Rocco. Rocco Cannavale is a very Italian name, right? When Colbert asked if the name choice was for Saint Rocco (who is a real saint, I checked), Bobby said: “Actually, yeah, patron saint of the sick…pretty sure. Could be wrong. I’m tired.”

Rocco is Bobby’s second child and Rose’s first. Bobby was previously married to Jenny Lumet (Sidney Lumet’s daughter) and they have a son, Jake, together. Rose and Bobby are not married and I don’t think they’re engaged either. Bobby’s 45 years old (fantastic genes) and Rose is 36.

    I love the name. Spelled Roko or Rok it’s a pretty common name in my country and I like it a lot.

    I think Bobby looks his age. Rose on the other hand, looks a lot younger. That baby hit the gene jackpot for sure.

    • Rachel says:

      I think he looks a lot older than his age most of the time. Smoking will do that to you. And he smokes like a house on fire.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      I really don’t see major work on Rose. I could be wrong of course. I also don’t see that much work on JLO either. Beyonce did do something to her nose.

    • Patty says:

      It’s probably because she doesn’t control her image like Beyonce or JLo, and doesn’t pretend to be this flawless person all of the time. See the selfie? No filter, LOL. Also, amongst other things it is pretty obvious that Beyonce has had a nose job (maybe two) and breast implants. I think the consensus is that JLo has also had a breast job and perhaps dabbled in other plastic surgery. Regardless, I really don’t see what Beyonce and JLo have to do with Rose Byrne.

    Rose is so stunning. Love this couple and wish them well!

  3. GlimmerBunny says:

    He is SOO hot but I had no idea he was 45 years old!! I think he’s playing Mr. Wickham in “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”, isn’t he a bit old for that role then?

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Jack Huston plays Mr. Wicham in PPZ.

      • GlimmerBunny says:

        Oh, that explains it! They sort of look alike, don’t they?

        Congratulations to Rose and Bobby on their baby boy!

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      @glimmer: I don’t think he and Jack Huston look alike at all, but they were both in Boardwalk Empire, so maybe that’s how you got confused?

      I’ve liked Bobby Canavale for a long time–since he was on Third Watch (Eddie Cibrian was on that show, too) in the late 90s/early 2000s. He’s one of those actors you kinda forget about but then are always pleasantly surprised when they show up in something.

      • GlimmerBunny says:

        That might be it, I only watched BE sporadically so I might have gotten them confused 😀

      • Locke Lamora says:

        I loved Third Watch ( I saw reruns a couple of years ago). I alway shad a crush on the guy who played Carlos Nieto, too bad he never made it big after the show.

  4. Nancy says:

    I fell in love with Rose in Bridesmaids. Gorgeous and funny. Girl Crush. You’re a rocking little boy Rocco. Welcome to the world.

  5. AG-UK says:

    Loved her in Damages…. one of my favourite shows and hated him in Boardwalk not that he was bad but he was good at being a nut. Congrats to them. Wow Jenny Lumet that’s a blast from the past.

  6. ilove6kies says:

    The only thing that comes to my mind when I see him is Mr. Funky Spunk…am I terrible? Lol.

  7. QQ says:

    Love em! I am sooooo into him that I thought i’d act like the crazy Benedict Snatchington or Twilight people about her But Nope i cant help but to adore her too, she seems like the coolest chick

  8. EscapedConvent says:

    They are very cute together, and I’ll bet their son is a little doll baby!

  9. msd says:

    I like them so no snark from me. Congrats, that’s going to be one very cute kid.

  10. lizzie says:

    FAV CELEB COUPLE – NEVER BREAK UP. they are both gorgeous and are not precious about working together or being a couple. he was my very first celebrity crush. BOBBY CAFFEY FOREVER!

    • Lauren II says:

      I adored Bobby on Third Watch. Rose is stunning. Congrats to them both – very classy couple.

  11. kri says:

    Congrats to them! They are really cool together. Two really talented actors-they can do any type of work, which I appreciate.

    I have a soft spot for Bobby since The Station Agent (a wonderful movie) and i really liked Rose in Sunshine and Adam. At first I was surprised that they got together – they seemed like completely different people, but they look very happy and now I root for them. Congratulations.

    Rose is very beautiful – her face reminds me of Sharon Tate’s.

  14. Granger says:

    I don’t get the “fantastic genes” comment about Bobby. He looks like your average 45-year-old man to me. And I’m 44, so I have a lot of 45-year-old friends to compare him to. 🙂

    I love Rose Byrne. I bet she’ll be a fun mom.

    • Emily C. says:

      I agree. He’s a good-looking guy, but in a very normal mid-40s way. I think Hollywood ages people, with the stress, diets, overexercising, sun, smoking, and cosmetic surgery. So a lot of people who spend their time looking at pictures of celebrities all day might forget what normal people look like.

    • joe says:

      I’m just insanely jealous. His wife is a stunner and I like her movies too.
