Josh Hartnett Expecting Baby With Girlfriend Tamsin Egerton
Hearts all over the world are breaking as the news of Josh Hartnett’s impending fatherhood has come to light. Yes, it is true; the “Penny Dreadful” stat and girlfriend Tamsin Egerton have announced that they are expecting their first child together, according to confirmation from his reps to E!. The couple met in 2010 on the film “The Lovers” but made their relationship official about two years ago. This will be the first child for Hartnett, 36, who is best-known for his roles in “The Faculty” and “Black Hawk Down.” He is currently filming “The Long Home” which is set for a 2017 release.
The movie is directed by James Franco, who will also star alongside Hartnett as well as Josh Hutcherson, Courtney Love and Ashton Kutcher. As for Tamsin, she is in the midst of filming movie “Grimsby” and the mini-series “Killing Jesus.” Clearly they are both very busy but had time to make a baby. The film that they met on was actually released earlier this year so that may have been the spark that has created a little Hartnett. The daddy-to-be talked to USA Today a little over a month ago and explained why he attempts to keep his private life just that: “I purposefully didn’t want people to know too much about my personal life because I think a lot of people give it away for free. I think if you spend too much time courting people’s attention into your personal life, you lose your ownership of it. That’s why I make sure my life is my own.
“I was not a dumb kid. I was a little bit wary of this business. I saw what it could do to people pretty quickly.” It seems like he has escaped the curse, as far as we know. If you are scratching your head as to whom he has dated in the industry before, think Scarlett Johansson. No word on when the baby is due or the gender but we wish the couple all the best and cannot wait to see the first photos!
