Krysten Ritter welcomes first child, son Bruce Julian Knight Granofsky


We were all kind of blown away when Krysten Ritter appeared at the Oscar’s sporting a baby bump. I had no idea she was expecting. No wonder she was so content with ending Jessica Jones, she had another project to focus on. And now, the little bundle has arrived! Krysten and partner, Adam Granduciel, have welcomed a baby boy named Bruce.

Krysten Ritter has given birth to her first child – a baby boy named Bruce Julian Knight Granofsky!

Bruce was born on July 29 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. TMZ got a hold of the little one’s birth certificate, which you can check out on their site.

Adam’s actual last name is Granofsky, he goes by Granduciel for his band, The War on Drugs. Bruce Julian Knight sounds like a knight, doesn’t it? Of course, given Krysten’s superhero background, there are already theories that the name is comic related, specifically Bruce Wayne/The Dark Knight. Given that Krysten was in a Marvel show, this would be kind of funny. However, the baby shower usually gives hints if the baby’s name is themed. Krysten and Adam’s was rock n’ roll themed so I’m inclined to think Bruce and Knight are just a coincidence, rather than an ode to Batman.

Other than what‘s in the excerpt, we don’t know much. Both Krysten and Adam are pretty private about their personal life, so I don’t think we’ll get much more information, which, of course, is perfectly fine. Except I like baby pics. One thing we do know is that Baby Bruce will be well-kept in blankets and caps. Krysten is an avid knitter who has her own pattern line. Maybe Bruce will be her model for a new baby-line? Ohmigawd – what if Bruce and Mikey model together?! We may not get pics of Bruce on her Instagram, but Krysten is always generous with pics of her pup Mikey (and bless her all the more for it.)

Congratulations Krysten, Adam an Mikey on the newest family member!

    I’m gonna be that crazy craft person…that’s crochet!!! Way more versatile ( and frankly cooler) than knitting.
    Come at me, Knitters! }:‑)

    • ab says:

      I see both knitting and crochet there. I also do both (and some sewing), and don’t think one is better, just that some projects are more suited to one or the other.

    • Marianne says:

      Oh my heavens, me too. I’m looking and thinking, it’s crochet! But yes, there is a knit blanket there too.

  2. Naddie says:

    There’s no way to not think of Batman. Also, I love her and she’s gorgeous, pregnant and not.

  3. Erinn says:

    I didn’t realize she was pregnant! Congratulations to them!

    I kind of like the name Bruce in a way – it’s not a typical name chosen anymore, but it’s grown on me.

    • Lizzie says:

      me too. i love the name! i know a few bruce’s and they are great guys and of course – bruce springsteen is my god.

        Love Bruce Springsteen, too… Years ago, for my 30th birthday, my best friend surprised me and took me to see Bruce at the Rose Bowl. We had nose-bleed seats, but we were up singing and dancing all night. Such a good memory!! (Also, can’t wait for the movie “Blinded By the Light” coming out on the 16th (with his music being the basis of the film. Looks like fun!).

        Whenever I hear the name “Bruce”, it takes me back to elementary school. There was a gorgeous boy named Bruce: olive skinned, sandy blonde hair, and light, but*really* intensely icy, blue eyes…sigh…. such a cutie 😊

    Also, “Ritter” means “Knight” in German, though that might be a fun coincidence.

    It’s f**ked up that TMZ obtained and posted the birth certificate. I really really doubt the parents leaked it, which means someone at the hospital did, for money. Now this poor kid’s gonna deal with identity theft issues his whole life, on top of the basic violation of leaking someone’s medical info.

  6. BaronSamedi says:

    Well, Knight is also the literal translation of Krysten’s last name Ritter which means knight in German…so it might have something to do with that too 🙂

  7. Case says:

    The thought of calling a baby “Bruce” amuses me. It sounds like a 50 year old man, or Batman. I’ve never met a baby Bruce!

    • TheMummy says:

      Yes! Like naming a baby Barbara. It seems like a name only older people have…for me it’s hard to even imagine a baby Barbara.

    • tealily says:

      I love it for that very reason! Ain’t nobody naming their kids Bruce these days, and yet it’s a common name that everyone will know how to pronounce. Guaranteed this kid will be the only Bruce in his class at school!

  8. Mab's A'Mabbin says:

    It’s awesome how pregnant nesting sneaks up. Each of mine had me making elaborate 3D Christmas stockings lol. But every year they bring us joy.

  9. Marianne says:

    I mean Bruce could always be Bruce Banner aka the The Hulk as well.

    Or its Bruce because they liked the name…or its a family name or a myriad of other reasons.
