Oscar Isaac & his girlfriend Elvira Lind are expecting their first baby

This blonde lady is Elvira Lind, also known as “Oscar Isaac’s girlfriend.” Elvira and Oscar have been together for a few years, at least. He’s pretty private about his love life, but he has started to bring Elvira as his “date” to some events, much to the dismay of all of the ladies out there who have made Oscar into the latest Internet Boyfriend. Well, here’s an interesting development for all of those ladies: it seems like Oscar and Elvira are expecting their first child. Oscar has been filming a movie in New York, and Elvira came to the set a few days ago and there were photos of her looking noticeably preggo – you can see the photos here. So… yeah, your Internet Boyfriend is having a baby with his girlfriend.

Oscar Isaac is about to tackle his biggest role yet—fatherhood. The Star Wars actor and his girlfriend, Elvira Lind, appear to be expecting their first child together. While the wildly private pair have not yet confirmed the news themselves, a recent photograph of the two walking in the streets of the Big Apple did all the talking for them.

Though she was donning a loose maxi dress, Lind’s growing baby bump could not be camouflaged. Congratulations are in order!

[From E! News]

Yeah, I don’t have much to say about this other than “congratulations.” While I’m generally fond of Oscar, I never found him to be Internet-Boyfriend-worthy in the same vein as Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleston. Oscar seemed to actively shun that kind of fame too, as opposed to Bendy and Tommy Hiddles, both of whom liked to stoke their fanbases into a frenzy. Oscar and Elvira seem happy together and I wish them well. That baby is going to be gorgeous too.

Here are some photos of Oscar and Olivia Wilde filming in New York over the past few days. Olivia is wearing one of the fakest-looking bumps I’ve ever seen. Is the “Bump Budget” for the film like $5?

    She looks a little like a Olivia Wild and that bebe will be adorable. I hope they remain solid while his career tragectory changes.

    • Kiki says:

      I have been saying the same thing about his girlfriend as well. Oh well, I am really happy for Oscar Issacs and his life. I hope he does really well and congratulation to his and his girlfriend.

    • V4Real says:

      She looks nothing like Olivia, she wishes, maybe. Are you sure you’re not looking at the pic of Olivia and thinking that’s his girlfriend.

      • detritus says:

        ahaha yes, that’s exactly what i’m doing.
        my partner tells me i’m face blind, and it’s true, i saw the blonde and big pregnancy belly and that’s all it took. I even thought, ‘wow her face looks so different in profile’.

    • burnsie says:

      She reminds me of a young Laura Dern

  2. Laura says:

    That woman has quite a large head.

    • ell says:

      well he’s sort of tiny, and she’s tallish.

    • Adrien says:

      Just an unfortunate angle. It doesn’t help that Oscar is a short guy, just a few cm taller than Gael 😉
      Elvira Lind looks like the tall girl sidekick of Melissa McCarthy in Spy (Miranda Heart?).

      • hannah89 says:

        truth! Oscar is 5’5. 1 inch taller than Gael, who is 5’4.

        these two’s babies gonna be goooorgeous.

    • HeidiM says:

      I noticed that yesterday in the set of pics that Lainey gossip had put up. And then I started to wonder if maybe he just had a very small head.

    • Pix says:

      I love him. I never knew he was so petite until I saw the pictures of them together. His face looks elfish next to hers. Hmmm.

  3. Mia4s says:

    Yeah Oscar seems to be in that “could not care less about fame” category. He’ll always work but I doubt very much he’ll ever be a real “celebrity”. Not a bad thing.

    Also helps explain why he dropped out of that Steven Spielberg movie. This, plus I read that his mother died in February. That’s a lot of personal stuff at once.

    Well, I hope they’re very happy….really…Sigh…at least Diego Luna is still single… 😉

    • teacakes says:

      I think you’re right re: Oscar. Many actors (talented ones) are that way, and while it may not net instant bankability, it’s a healthier thing in the long run than chasing stardom.

      Also as far as Star Wars Internet boyfriends go, Diego is A+++ and he’s a dad too.

      • Adrien says:

        Damn, those SW boys are really shorties. Add Alden and Donald Glover to that short boys club soon. I saw Diego in person last December and he is not as short as I thought but his built is very tiny, like a child. Plus he is not American so he is likely not going to wear shoe lifts.
        Teacakes, is Riz Ahmed still single? Lena ruined Adam Driver for me and now Riz. Someone please protect John Boyega from Lena.

      • Mia4s says:

        @Adrien some people were saying Riz was sitting with his girlfriend at the Golden Globes? No one famous and didn’t appear to be in the biz so to speak. I have no idea though, she could have just been at the table!

        Strangely most actors are not that tall and it looks like the Star Wars crew is no exception. The evil guys are though (Adam and Domhnall, and Ben Mendelson)! That’s how we know Finn and Poe aren’t secretly evil, they’re not very tall. Diego seems above average, but in that group it’s not hard (someone described him to me once as probably 5’10 but actual 5’10, not IMDb 5’10. And he is very slight. I imagine they’ll bulk him up a bit when he plays a superhero….that’s not a rumour or anything I’ve just accepted the fact that all actors will one day be in a superhero movie. Its easier to just accept it. It’s now a law I think. 😏

      • teacakes says:

        @Adrien @Mia – yeah, Diego is very slight – he’s always been skinny and he slouches too, so he looks even smaller but I like him that way! But yeah, it’s funny how the only tall good guy in Rogue One is Alan Tudyk (5’11 and a half) and he’s a droid lol. Diego is obviously shorter than him but not by a drastic amount. Also, isn’t Harrison Ford on the tall side?

        Re: Riz – he’s not single, his girlfriend is a Dutch-Pakistani model and absolutely gorgeous.

        I’m so thankful I never got into Girls, so I can enjoy Adam, Riz and Felicity without the obnoxious Lena Dunham associations.

      • ell says:

        riz’s gf isn’t a model. she did some modelling for charity but that’s how far as it goes. she used to work for the UN in the past i think, idk what she does atm.

    • Moxie Remon says:

      Sad to all of us but I think Diego’s still messing with Suki Waterhouse.

      • Mia4s says:

        “Messing around” is fine. Until someone is a confirmed bona fide (for example showing up on set to visit really pregnant) the game is still a foot! 😂

        I kid, I kid. Oscar’s still high on the fantasy list of course!

        Weird aside but I always forget he is a really small guy. So weird that he played Apocalypse. And that was horrendous. Please don’t do that again sweetie.

      • teacakes says:

        I doubt that’s more than a casual hookup situation, but as someone said on the Olsen thread, hes not exactly wife hunting anyway.

      • ell says:

        it is sad indeed. i tend to judge people by their hook ups and/or partners, and while i love diego this is nagl.

      • hannah89 says:

        everytime you see suki waterhouse w/a guy, it’s safe to say the guy is closeted. she’s an on-call beard.

    • Nicole says:

      Diego isn’t single

  4. Tiffany27 says:

    I forgot he existed. Congrats to them!

  5. smcollins says:

    Oscar is definitely one of my top celebrity crushes, but this is great news. Congrats to him & Elvira! And, yes, that is going to be one super cute kid.

  6. Jess says:

    I was thinking her bump actually looks kinda close to what her real bumps looked like, lol. There’s one picture where it looks a little lumpy though.

    Congrats to Oscar and Elvira!

  7. teacakes says:

    Awww congratulations to them!

    It’s probably a good thing Oscar didn’t lean into his Internet boyfriend status or he’d have crazies insisting his relationship is fake and the baby isn’t his etc like a certain other Internet bf got.

  8. Kate says:

    I actually find Oscar to be much more Internet boyfriend worthy than The Snake’s ex or The Cumberboy.

    • Babs says:

      Me too.

    • Rocio says:

      He’s my Internet lover since I already have a husband lol.

      That being said, I don’t get the hate when these guys get married, engaged or are having children They’re human beings and they deserve normal, real and healthy relationships.

      • OhDear says:

        How dare he cheat on me by having an actual life!? Doesn’t he know that he’s *mine* even with the minor technicalities that our relationship is theoretical at best and that we’ll likely never meet?

        *slams door, throws self on bed, weeping*

        (Seriously, I hope she has an easy pregnancy/birth and that the whippersnapper is healthy.)

  9. MissMerry says:

    seriously that fake bump looks god-awful.
    couldn’t spend a few more $$ to make Wilde look better than that? lol

  10. ell says:

    ‘While I’m generally fond of Oscar, I never found him to be Internet-Boyfriend-worthy in the same vein as Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleston. Oscar seemed to actively shun that kind of fame too, as opposed to Bendy and Tommy Hiddles, both of whom liked to stoke their fanbases into a frenzy.’

    but that’s exactly what makes him attractive to those who don’t care for the posh brits act, namely me. oscar is also far more handsome than that lot.

  11. Adrien says:

    I prefer Oscar over Tom-tom and Cumbs. Sure he is short but he is very charismatic, talented and his face is easily explainable to kids. Oscar exudes intelligence too.

    • smcollins says:

      “…his face is easily explainable to kids.”

      Dying over here. I’m dead. 😂😂

  12. Rapunzel says:

    I’m not sure where anybody has gotten the idea that Oscar isn’t courting fame. Sure, he’s not thirsty like Cumberbatch or Hiddles, but come on. The man’s been in x-men and stat wars movies. One doesn’t take those kinds of roles if one doesn’t want fame. He wants it. And that’s okay, cause he’s seeking it in a none famewhore manner.

    • Fluff says:

      He’s courting a big acting career. That’s not quite the same thing as courting fame.

    • Nik says:

      Exactly. Any actor doing big budget, mainstream films is seeking fame. To a certain degree, nothing’s wrong with that but lets call it for what it is.

      @Fluff, usually they go hand in hand.

  13. serena says:

    Damn, I didn’t even know he had someone steady.. sigh. Btw I prefer him with a little beard.

  14. Rosey says:

    Love him. Congrats to them. Love celebs that keep their private life on the down-low.

  15. Spunk says:

    if that’s not Olivia Wilde,I’m quitting coffee and peanuts

    • Rocio says:

      He’s filming a movie with Olvia Wilde where she plays a pregnant lady. Elvira is the one in the main picture. Both blonde and pretty!

  16. Mannori says:

    I just have to say this and I hope it doesn’t come out as salty because it’s not but every time a couple where both or one of them is considered even mildly attractive and we have to use the term very loosely since beauty and attraction or sex appeal are a different thing and in any case all is so subjective (for example Oscar is attractive but wouldn’t be considered classically handsome by the large public) and his girlfriend forgive my this directness is just cute at best

    so is the question:

    why on earth do people feel the need to state that their baby will be gorgeous?

    What is he/she’s not? Because there’s more than a 50% chance that the baby will be average looking. And in any case all babies are considered at least cute, not to mention that many times not so good looking babies turn out to be gorgeous when they grow up and vice versa.

    Is obligatory to write so? because the statement assumes that all gougers babies come from gorgeous parents? I’d say that is actually the opposite in any case: usually gorgeous parents generate average looking children and vice versa: extremely good looking people usually have average looking parents. but is not a law in any case. So that’s what I have to rant about today. Sorry…

    • Moch says:

      I think they’re both attractive and I think people are saying the kids will be super cute because they will be of “mixed” heritage. Is it offensive to say that lots of biracial kids are considered super cute (possibly due to less of them being around)? I don’t think people are just being “obliging” when they say it.

      • Tui says:

        there is an aspect of fetishizing mixed people, and babies especially, that is considered offensive, tbh.

  17. Original T.C. says:

    I hope they have a girl with his shiny dark hair, those smoking dark eyes and long envious eyelashes. A walking beauty! No offense to his girlfriend, she looks perfectly normal but he is the beauty of the family.

  18. Stacy Dresden says:

    Sigh. He’s alluring

  19. Nina says:

    Top six celebrity crushes:

    6. Paul Rudd
    5. Donald Glover
    4. Jake Gyllenhaal
    3. Diego Luna
    2. Oscar Isaac
    1. Aidan Turner

    If only Mr. Turner would drop his piece. She’s so eyeroll-worthy.

    • kaiC says:

      Is he still dating that artist?

      • Nina says:

        Was he dating an artist? I believe his current gf is still Tara Derakshan. Despite her achievements, I can’t bring myself to respect a grown woman who posts that many selfies and makes so much duck face. Her IG feed just screams, “Look at meeeee!”

        I’m petty, I know.

  20. Cupcake says:

    Congrats! Out of curiosity, how old is she? She seems much older than him to me.

  21. Penfold says:

    I like him. He’s very handsome and seems like he’d be such a charmer in person. Best of luck to them for a healthy, happy baby!

  22. Rocio says:

    Congrats!!! They’re going to have a lovely child!!! Elvira is a true beauty. I love that he went for a taller lady.

    • hannah89 says:

      me too!….is it weird that I am so delighted when I see short men with tall women? I’m a 5’11 female and I’ve never been attracted to a man over 5’8….the greatest trysts (ha!) I’ve had have been with a 5’2 man and a 5’6 man. Is it weird that Ive found short guys to be less judgmental and try harder (aka put effort into showing their personalities, kindness, etc bc a lot of ppl including potential mates dismiss?) I dunno either way, me like short guys and tall gals! my fav couple is Sophie Dahl and Jamie Cullam (sp?). He’s 5’3 and she’s 6’1!

      • Tui says:

        I, too, adore the Cullum/Dahl partnership.

        Re: Oscar Isaac: I’m not sure if she’s tall rather than just taller. Somewhere upthread he’s mentioned as being 5’5″, and she’s wearing high heels in some of the baby bump pictures i’ve seen, so she may even be a smudge smaller or about the same height as him.

  23. Lyne says:

    They’re a cute couple. But apparently he frequently cheats on her.

  24. Batata says:

    Apparently, he cheated on his ex-girlfriend (Maria Miranda) with multiple women.

  25. hannah89 says:

    damn, lots of salty girls in the comments dissing his lady bc they are mad they cant have him.

    sorry ladies, but even if he was single and looking, the chances of him ending up with any of us is .001%. shake off the criticsm maybe?

  26. Lana says:

    Love him! Their baby will be adorable.
    There are a lot of BI about him being a serial cheater. Maybe he has changed.

  27. Moch says:

    Oscar’s a really good actor. I hope he gets more recognition, and I agree he did star wars and superhero stuff to be considered for more roles. Intelligent and humble in interviews.
