Matt Damon’s wife is said to be pregnant


Matt Damon’s wife, Luciana Barroso, 31, is said to be three month’s pregnant with the couple’s second child together. They have a 14 month-old daughter, Isabella, and Luciana has another child, 9 year-old daughter Alexia, from her first husband.

“Luciana is about three months along, and she’s doing great – and Matt couldn’t be happier,” a source close to the 36 year-old actor told The Enquirer.

“They don’t yet know if the baby is a boy or a girl, and they’re still deciding whether to find out the sex beforehand.

“Their main priority is to have a healthy baby – but I’m sure in the backs of their minds they’re hoping for a boy.”

If this news is true, congratulations to Matt and Luciana! Matt seems like a devoted father and husband and they must be ecstatic. When a reporter asked him recently if he liked being married, he said “F–k, no. It’s a ridiculous thing to do. But I like being married to her [Luciana].”

Fatherhood sounds like a challenging but rewarding role for Damon. He suffered a painful pinched nerve in his neck while holding and feeding his daughter and had to skip the after party at the Berlin premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum on Tuesday. He told German newspaper Bild “My 14-month old daughter Isabella did me in — something no killer can.” Damon attended the premiere with acupuncture needles in his ear and was spotted out wearing a neck brace the next day.

Meanwhile there’s a lack of sensational news about top box office draw Damon, and Star Magazine is running a laughably mild story about how he got dissed after his 1988 senior prom by his date titled “The Girl He Can’t Forget”!:

“We went to an after party on Cape Cod, which is two hours from Boston, and my girlfriend bumped into an ex boyfriend of hers at the party,” Matt recalled in a 2004 interview. “We all went back to a little shack, and her sister told me to sleep in this longue chair.”

Unfortunately for young Matt, his date spent the rest of the evening lavishing on her attention on her ex! “I didn’t have a car; I was stuck there. It was terrible,” Matt lamented. In another interview, he added that he was “hopelessly in love, crying myself to sleep. I mean heartbroken! Crestfallen!”

Matt’s ex girlfriend is now married to a former NBA pro, has four children, and lives in Florida. I wonder if she’s smirking over the fact that her old high school picture is in Star Magazine this week along with that nearly two decades-old story that she wasn’t interested in Matt Damon. It seems like the worst thing this guy did was break up with Minnie Driver by telling Oprah about it first, and after he made that mistake early in his career he’s turned into an incredibly good guy and an all-around decent human being. If only all celebrities could be like Damon.

Matt and Luciana are shown at the London premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum on 8/15/07. Thanks to PRPhotos for these pictures.
