It appears as if Michael Fassbender & Alicia Vikander quietly welcomed a baby

Calm With Horses Premiere

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander got married three years ago, in a lowkey ceremony in Portugal. They moved to Portugal in, like, 2015 or 2016? It was a while ago, and it was around the same time that Fassbender really started walking away from movies in a big way. He still works now and then, but mostly he just hangs out in Portugal with Alicia and races cars. Alicia has worked inconsistently in recent years too, and the last time we saw them on a red carpet was March 2020. There were some paparazzi photos of them last fall and I do remember some minor gossip about whether Alicia “looked pregnant” in those pics. Well, she probably was preg. And now Fassbender has been seen with a baby on the set of Alicia’s new series.

Michael Fassbender was pictured cradling a baby on Monday as he supported Alicia Vikander on the set of Irma Vep in Paris. The actor, 44, looked in good spirits as he held onto the tot while watching his wife work on her upcoming HBO series. While Michael walked around the set with the baby, Alicia, 32, was seen making her way to her trailer in a fluffy white robe and sliders.

It is the first time Michael has been seen out with a baby and no further details are known. Michael and Alicia have lived in Lisbon, Portugal, since marrying three years ago and have not previously spoken about whether they would have children together. The couple were last pictured together in October 2020 when they were seen enjoying a stroll in Alicia’s native Sweden.

[From The Daily Mail]

Yeah, I think they had a baby and they didn’t announce anything because they’re both wary of getting press for anything these days. Fassbender was supposed to be the big guy of his generation, the next DeNiro, the next Jack Nicholson. But a combination of bad choices and lack of desire for stardom (I think) made him leave that all behind for a quieter life with his wife and baby. God bless and congrats to them.

    Congrats to them. I like them together

    • Snappyfish says:

      I agree. I have always adored both of them. They just seems really happy together. Photos I have seen of them when they thought no one was looking are just super sweet. Congrats on the little one. In an interview for the movie they did & fell in love on she mentioned she wanted children. Now there is a little Swedish, Irish, German version of them!! Well done on having a private life

  2. Lee says:

    I think they’re just two people who really want privacy and, despite being really famous, they have proved they can stay off the radar so far. Unlike some C listers who complain on socials but long to be papped and overshare anything, even the most private stuff, to stay in the spotlight. So kudos to Alicia and Michael for being able to talk the talk and walk the walk.

  3. BusyLizzy says:

    NOOOOOOO…he’s my future ex husband!

    Joking aside, congrats to them. I found Alicia’s acting quite meh but maybe she’s a great person.

  4. Seraphina says:

    I am a a BIG TIME Fassey-looney. Not sure what made him walk away, I do miss seeing what he chooses next and how he approaches the character. Congrats to them both.

    • Lena says:

      I heard he was doing a David Fincher thriller in October or November in Paris.

    • josephine says:

      I suspect he’ll bounce back – he’s very watchable and since he’s a man, his age is not a problem. Can’t wait to see his next project.

    • Seraphina says:

      Lena and josephine, thank you for the news. Now I have it on my radar 🙂

  5. milliemollie says:

    Social Media seemed to know about it for months. I’ve seen people mentioning it, but I wasn’t really sold because no one else was talking about it. There was even a pic of her looking very pregnant floating around months ago. I think I saw it on Twitter

    • Agirlandherdog says:

      Yeah, when I saw the headline, I thought “I thought that was common knowledge.” And this is the only celeb news site I frequent, so it’s interesting that I thought it was old news.

  6. sunny says:

    They are both super talented(especially him) and low key. I think they both have a habit of choosing bad projects and that impacted their career trajectories but have also maybe realized that they don’t want the major stardom and are cool just pursuing whatever appeals to them?

    Congrats to them on the birth of their baby.

  7. Lightpurple says:

    Congratulations to them! Miss seeing him on screen.

  8. H says:

    They got married in Ibiza not Portugal. And there was a photo of her resting a cup on her bump that leaked a while back.

    • Jayna says:

      Aw. She was so cute pregnant.

    • Andrea says:

      There were pictures of her in a bathing suit in Ibiza last year where she looked fuller in the stomach and then the walk in Sweden in October where her face looked fuller in a big puffy coat.

  9. Loretta says:

    Congrats! They’re a cute couple.

  10. Golly Gee says:

    I watched Prometheus on a plane and in spite of the tiny little monitor— and a pretty ridiculous plot, Michael Fassbender as a somewhat homicidal robot was riveting and sexy as hell! LOL. I had never even heard of him before and wondered: who is this lovely beast?

    They seem to have found the best of both worlds. They can still do some acting work but aren’t enmeshed in the whole Hollywood scene. It’s refreshing that he’s taking care of the baby but still there to support Alicia while she works. [Although that also may be because the baby is being breast-fed.)

    • A.Key says:

      I am super impressed you somehow managed to have never heard about him before watching Prometheus (of all things!) on a plane no less! LOL, impressive. I would think at least X-Men put him into the super famous category, I guess not. The age of proper Hollywood stars has really died then.

  11. Mia4s says:

    It’s rather interesting because two Oscar nominations in three years and a gazillion other awards is no small thing. It’s like he made some big cash off of some (mostly terrible) blockbusters, decided he was “meh” on Hollywood, and walked away. He still works (I mean, he’s in David Fincher’s next) but he seems over Hollywood. She also seemed like she wanted to make a play for big stardom and then…nope. Honestly they may end up being one of the happier actor couples because of it!

    • Lee says:

      I couldn’t agree more!

    • Lemons says:

      I don’t think Alicia ever had the staying power to be truly A-list…Her acting was always meh to me.
      But I am sad that we don’t see the Fass in more films because I love him in almost everything he is in. He’s a bit like Ewan McGregor for me, and I’ll watch anything they’re in 😂

      • Snappyfish says:

        She was great in the danish girl(won her an Oscar, somewhat A list) & ex machina. The man from UNCLE was a fun summer movie (oops about Armie hammer) but the Croft movies not so much.

  12. Aurora says:

    Fassbender was undone by the MeToo movement. He has a serious domestic violence accusation in his past that threatens to be resurrected with every new project he does.

    • Millennial says:

      I was just reading about that on Wikipedia. Yikes.

    • Mia4s says:

      Oh please. Mark Wahlberg and his hate crimes say hi from his upcoming blockbuster with Tom Holland. Emile Hirsch choked a woman on camera and was in Tarantino’s next. One old accusation wouldn’t have slowed him down for a second. MeToo made some positive impact, but frankly a lot of it has sadly been Internet noise at best.

    • ElleV says:

      weren’t they both up to their ears with Weinstein at the time the proverbial poop hit the fan? she/he/they were Weinstein’s pet project right before everything blew up so I have to wonder whether that stained them / the phone stopped ringing when people weren’t being bullied to call

      • Lara says:

        No, this is an extremely weird lie that psycho fassbender fans (why does that awful man have fans?) have spread. None of her big projects, or the ones she got the most acclaim for, were Weinstein ones.

    • Andrea says:

      I also agree. His accusations from multiple exes are scary. I think he has backed away because of it. I hope Alicia is okay.

      • FlachamBoden says:

        Multiple women ? Oh wow I “only” heard about one.

      • Andrea says:

        I read about a friend who was at a dinner party with Michael and an ex who has not openly accused him and what he witnessed was that he was controlling and violent towards her in front of others.

      • FlachamBoden says:

        Oh wow. If true, then it this is truly disgusting!

  13. Iris says:

    Always find it really fascinating how Fassbender went to ground after 2016. I think he was biding his time until the MeToo movement died down…

  14. Katherine says:

    If true, this is the way. We are not entitled to every little detail of people’s lives, and I am honestly tired that the information is available.

  15. Jayna says:

    I love him in movies.

  16. Lara says:

    I didn’t realize people didn’t know this. There were plenty of pictures of her clearly pregnant.

    She is very talented but made a very bad choice marrying a terrible person like him. Pregnancy completely changed her face too.

    Good luck to the baby.

    • rawiya says:

      I agree with your and third paragraphs! I feel like her career stalling/stopping was all him. She was en route to being Hollywood’s biggest star and then he happened. Oh well. Hopefully she’s happy.

  17. Lucy2 says:

    I don’t really follow either of them, but congrats, and well done on keeping it quiet.

  18. Case says:

    I don’t have any particular interest in either of their acting careers, but I think it’s great that they’re able to live off the radar and raise their child in peace.

  19. Rapunzel says:

    I too would live in Portugal if I could.

  20. rawiya says:

    I don’t like him. He’s abusive. Congrats to her and her healthy baby.

  21. SM says:

    It just shows that in this age of social media and 24/7 online life, everyone who truly desires it, can remain private. Congrats to them.

  22. Cait says:

    He needs to pick better projects I don’t know what’s happening with his career especially after Assassins Creed.I always found Alicia kind of forgettable as and actress. Nothing compelling about her , but at least their both quiet

  23. Barbie1 says:

    Their baby will have good looks and talent no doubt. Congrats.

  24. L4frimaire says:

    These two really are living that low key life. Congrats to them. She was so good in Ex Machina and Fassbinder is really an amazing actor and would love to see him do more.

  25. SusanRagain says:

    Congrats on a new baby!
    Nice if they can keep their privacy.

  26. iconoclast59 says:

    I see that Meghan gave Harry’s blue suede shoes to Michael Fassbender 😉

  27. Jaded says:

    He had a very open drinking problem back in the day and was violent to at least one of his girlfriends so on the one hand I’m happy he seems to have brought that demon under control and has a happy life with AV and their baby but jeez, read up on his attacks against his former girlfriend, Sunawin “Leasi” Andrews. It’s chilling.

  28. KaleLover says:

    I like them both. He’s very talented and I enjoyed her interpretation of Lara Croft. I remember she was very thin two, three weeks before she kind of appeared with a large belly, which seemed to be a Beyonce moment. I think it was via surrogate. Anyway, either way, congrats!

  29. The Recluse says:

    Sounds like they both decided to step back and have a life for a little while, which is good for anyone in a high pressure situation.
    I wish them the best.
    Vikander was good in The Green Knight, which I recommend.

  30. A.Key says:

    I miss him on the screen! He’s a great actor and proper handsome to boot, come back Fassy!

  31. Derpy says:

    I question his abuse allegations as the victim threatened two other men with the same abuse charge if she didn’t get a car and the second scenario $250K .

    There was multiple testimonies to this
