Emma Stone gave birth to her first child. Despite the secrecy with which she and her husband, Dave McCary, handled the information about the pregnancy, news of the arrival of the baby – whose name and gender are still unknown – has been leaking for the past several hours.
The actress and comedian first met when she performed on Saturday Night Live in 2016 and the relationship was kept secret until 2019, after which they were first shown together in public at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
According to Stone herself told Elle, her desire for motherhood changed dramatically throughout her life. “My view of children changed as I got older. I’ve never tried on or anything. When I was a teenager I was like ‘I will never get married, I will never have children’ and when I got older I was like ‘I really want to get married, I really want to have children,’ he said.
The couple’s love story
McCary and Stone’s relationship with the press boils down to professional issues. From the beginning of their bond, the couple has kept their private life and that’s exactly what they did with the pregnancy and the birth of their baby.
Unlike other celebrities, who are happy to share images and videos of the newborn with their followers, the actress and comedian did not share any kind of content about the pregnancy of the actress and remained silent on their social networks for the past few hours.
Likewise, when Stone and McCary agreed to get married in September 2019, nothing was known in the media for a long time. It wasn’t until December 2019 that the couple announced publicly that they had set the date for their wedding. So the 31-year-old actress and 35-year-old screenwriter made the announcement by showing on his Instagram account (she doesn’t have) the diamond ring they got engaged to. The wedding was scheduled for mid-March, although it had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
For four years before meeting the comedian, Stone was in a relationship with Andrew Garfield, his Spider-Man co-star. A year later, in late 2016, he met Dave McCary on a visit to SNL, the show he works for. At that time the actress starred in a sketch he had written; they only became a couple until mid-2017, however. Emma and Dave aren’t the only couple to have formed on Saturday Night Live. Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost also met on the hit comedy show; Ben Affleck found love on television (with producer Lindsay Shookus) and Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis met while he was part of the cast.
