Hollywood actor Josh Hartnett confirms that he had been father once again with his partner Tamsin Egerton. Tamsin had given birth to the couple’s third child. The Pearl Harbour star, 42, and actress, 32, have been in a relationship for nine years and are very much protective of their private life, and the couple haven’t even disclosed their children’s names publicly.

In a rare conversation about his family life, Josh told “MR PORTER’s digital magazine” on Thursday, being a father has made him more proud than any film project he has done. He told Mr Porter: “There are (projects I’m proud of), but the thing I am most proud of is that I’m a father of three and I have a good relationship with my partner and a great family life and I’m still able to do good work and, as I’ve got older, the characters have become more interesting. He also said “I don’t know what the possibilities of my life could have been had I chosen different routes, but I will say that in giving in to the allure of Hollywood entirely, I know that I would not have a happy life. I feel very strongly about that.”

Josh and Tamsin met on the set of The Lovers in 2011 and started dating in 2012 and they welcomed their first child in late 2015. The duo have a 5-year-old and 3-year-old and it’s unclear when the couples welcomed their third child. Hartnett has spent the COVID-19 pandemic with family and discussed the challenges of keeping his kids busy. “We’ve been trying to keep them occupied as best we can, but it’s a lot of work and it takes both of us all day and by the end of it all we want to do is reach for a bottle of wine and go to sleep,” he said.

Earlier in 2016, Josh spoke about how much he loves being a parent, and gushed having a child had ‘put everything into perspective’. Josh previously dated actresses Kirsten Dunst, Scarlett Johansson and Amanda Seyfried. Harnett will next appear in the HBO limited series Exterminate All the Brutes, written and directed by Raoul Peck.
