The Avengers star has confirmed that he secretly wed the mother of his child, Sonni Pacheco!
Attention female Avenger fans, this sexy Hawkeye is now a married man! Sources say he’s been able to keep his new marriage secret, up until now, in order to protect his new wife and daughter. Renner, 43, flashed his wedding band during a Kill the Messenger screening in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday.
"I have tried to protect my family's privacy, my wife's privacy. I don't need her to get hammered with my life," he told the online magazine Capitol File.
The sound of wedding bells for these two has now put an end to the many rumors that reported their relationship had been on and off for years. Their daughter, Ava Berlin, was born in March of 2013. The Oscar nominee says he has plenty of reasons to keep their marriage secret.
"It's annoying being followed when I'm with my family," he said. "It's not just me—everyone [in Hollywood] has to deal with that. I've been talked about a whole lot, because the less I put out there, the less people know, and it makes it interesting, I assume." He says he’s also swarmed with paparazzi while out with his family and wanted to keep them out of the limelight.
And as for being a daddy, he says it’s the best thing that’s happened to him. "The only thing I think about when I'm not with my baby is, 'How do I get to my baby?' I need to get to her, and I'm very miserable when I don't see her. I really love being a father.”
Next up on his Hollywood stardom plate? Renner will star as Gary Webb, a journalist in the new movie Kill the Messenger based on Webb's book Dark Alliance coming out in October.
Congrats to Renner and his bride on their marriage!
