Chris Noth, 54, gets engaged to his 27-year-old baby-mama

Even though I’m a big fan, I don’t really follow Chris Noth’s personal life. This is mainly because I’ve always sort of assumed that he’s not as cool as he seems on Sex and the City and Law & Order. Not that Mr. Big is really that cool – he seems like a jerk, if truth be told. But I love Detective Logan. He’s such a great cop. And he stands up for the disenfranchised, too! Sigh. By the way, you know that Chris has left Criminal Intent for good – and Vincent D’Onofrio is on the way out too! That just leaves Jeff Golblum, who is woefully miscast. We need to petition Dick Wolf to bring back Goran and Logan!

Anyway, since I don’t really follow Chris Noth’s personal life, this came as a complete surprise to me. I remembered something vague about him having a kid with his girlfriend, and now it looks like he’s actually going to marry his baby-mama. Her name is Tara Wilson, and she’s 27 years old. Chris is 54. She is exactly half his age. They have a son together, Orion Noth, born in January of 2008.

Sex and the City star Chris Noth and his longtime girlfriend, actress Tara Wilson, are engaged, Entertainment Tonight Canada is reporting.

Noth, 54, broke the news to the show Sunday during an interview at the London, Ontario, outpost of Once Upon A Tea Cup, a teahouse of which he and Canadian-born Wilson, 27, are partners.

The couple, who met when Wilson worked at Noth’s New York City bar, the Cutting Room, have a son, Orion Christopher Noth, who turns two in January.

In mid-September, Noth denied a U.K. report that he and Wilson were engaged at the time.

A rep for Noth did not immediately return a request seeking comment.

[From People]

Congratulations to the happy couple! Although I’m biting my tongue to avoid saying something like “no fool like an old fool…” I’m actually very happy for Chris. Though he’s probably not as cool as Det. Logan (swoon), I still think Chris seems like a pretty nice guy. Maybe Tara is his soulmate. Or maybe he’s just a good guy who wants to marry the mother of his child. Swoon!

Here’s Chris Noth with Tara Wilson at the premiere of ‘Peepshow’ at Planet Hollywood in Vegas on April 18th. Images thanks to .

    I hated him on L&O! He was just boring! I’m sorry to see D’Onofrio go, but I think Goldblum might do okay. At least he’s kind of interesting.

  2. Beth says:

    Will people stop saying baby-mama. It’s so demeaning.

  3. dirty martini says:

    The age difference annoys the be-jesus out of me. Carrie Bradshaw would skewer him in a column. I have two words to say to him: Billy Joel

  4. Cheyenne says:

    Better late than never. Congratulations to them both. And little Orion is absolutely beautiful!

  5. Diane says:

    They look happy = )

    (I’m into my simple minded romanticism)

  6. Ursula says:

    Their kid is just super cute.

  7. Ameia says:

    Well he sure didn’t choose her for her looks, so it’s probably her age and her disposition to yield to his direction.

  8. L says:

    That could be me! Ha ha, not really, but about 7 or 8 years ago (when I was about 23) I was sitting at the same bar as he was in New York city and he asked me if I would marry him.

  9. Whitney says:

    @ameia whoa, bitchy much? maybe just maybe he finds her attractive. i wonder what u look like. Moreover, what crystal ball are u using to make the prediction about her yielding to his direction?

  10. Susette says:

    I spent an hour next to him once, waiting for a plane, and he was a really nice guy. I didn’t get a marriage proposal, though, L! LOL I wish him and his family all the best.

    I think L&O:CI is going to be a totally different show. I can handle Goldblum, but I wish they had kept Nicholson as his partner.

  11. Roma says:

    No no no! How did I not know Vincent D’Onofrio was leaving? Sigh, I love him. Like, irrationally love him. Perhaps it’s residual feelings from when he was Thor in Adventures in Babysitting and I was a kid? But I have such a crush on his big, puffy face.

    Oh, and I do think he’s a great actor.

  12. Allie says:

    When I was 24, I dated a 36 year old and he seemed so much older than me. A 54 year old would have felt like an ancient grandpa. I think Chris Noth is very handsome, but I don’t know how these young women do it.

  13. What evs says:

    Are you sure this is not a typo? The women looks older than 27 to me. Maybe she’s 37. Sometimes publicists lower the age becuase it has more shock value and creates more headlines.

  14. lalala says:

    woot woot. happened here in london yesterday. i was there and got to meet him. he’s nice. way to put london ont out there. lmao.

  15. samantha says:

    I highly doubt she chose Christopher Noth for his looks either, yuck! He’s a decent actor and has wealth and status, so methinks that had something to do with her selection of a mate. Noth isn’t a spring chicken and certainly isn’t the hottest guy in tinseltown.

  16. barneslr says:

    I agree, Susette. I really liked Nicholson as well. I wish they were keeping her on the show.

  17. Kaiser says:

    I liked Nicholson too, but I think the character & the actress left because of her pregnancy.

  18. nanster says:

    Tara Wilson’s DOB is listed as 2/25/82, so I guess she really is 27.

  19. Jaclyn says:

    Lucky bitch!!!

  20. What evs says:

    Nanster.. where did you look,..Public records or IMDB? She could of had things changed , sealed before her name became nationally publicized. So, it’s kind of hard to know the truth at this point.

  21. Annie UhOh says:

    She’s not the plastic perfect pretty that you see all over Hollywood, and I think she’s pretty cute if not a little overly tanned/made up! It’s so sad that when it comes to celebs, it’s impressive, even sweet, when a guy actually settles with a woman he appears to love and not, you know, four.

    I remember pictures of his kid a few months ago. Ridiculously cute.

  22. V says:

    @ Annie
    Overly tanned? Dude, she’s Black. LMFAO!!!

  23. orion70 says:

    On the original Law and Order there were always suggestions that he was a player. It was never truly tied into the episodes from what I recall. There was always some inside joke or reference to some girl, and that devilish smile. Logan and Cerreta / Briscoe were the best ever, but I digress. I love the OS, and continue to love SVU and Criminal Intent.

    Big was also this type of guy for the most part, so maybe he’s not too far off his typecast. Who knows. He seems to keep a fairly low profile.

    BTW, what was it that Madge was saying about 50+ year old guys?

  24. coucou says:

    He’s an idiot. When she’s just 43 he’ll be a whopping 70 years old! Wait a minute, maybe she’s an idiot! I am nearly 43 myself and cannot imagine being married to someone older than my own father…it is just so bizarre…but i doubt they even thought about that. Good luck to them, they will soooo need it.

  25. phat girl says:

    “…long time girlfriend…” What the hell do you consider a long time? I mean damn, nine years ago she was a minor!

  26. Cadiebelle says:

    Old story – they announced their engagement 2 weeks ago

  27. tasteT says:

    good for them, they have been living together for a while now.

    umm, she is not overly tanned, she is african american.

  28. mama says:

    she looks asian, not african american.

  29. hunnybe says:

    There are lots of black people that may look asian but she is obviously black. LOL @ overly tanned.

  30. beachbum says:

    when I was 27 I was never interested in a guy that was 54. Sounds like a Father figure issue.

  31. TS says:

    Read she is black and asian. They look happy together. Neither one is any great beauty. Always liked him on law and order, he’s a good actor.

  32. Ellen Smith says:

    She needs a makeover. Cheesy makeup.

  33. alex says:

    My fiance and I are 18 years apart.. I am 20 and he is 38, we are very happy.. Age is just a number.. Do it to it chris!!!
