With a 24-hour news cycle it's hard to believe that we can miss any important events in our favorite celebrities' lives. While it can become increasingly difficult for Hollywood stars to separate their professional lives from private lives, they can still catch us by surprise.
It comes as a complete surprise when we see one of the biggest names on the silver screen walking along the Santa Monica pier with a 2-year-old, that you didn't know they had!
Here are 7 of your favorite celebrities that you never knew had kids.
Tom Hardy and Charlotte Riley
English actor Tom Hardy has certainly made a name for himself in the US thanks to huge roles in The Dark Knight and Mad Max: Fury Road. It was his role in the 2009 UK TV series Wuthering Heights that really changed his life.
On set Hardy co-starred with English actress Charolette Riley. Their chemistry seemed to have been kept alive off camera as they welcomed their first child in 2015, Louis Thomas Hardy.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tasha Mccauley
Some may recall young Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the 1994 classic, Angels In The Outfield. With films like Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, he has solidified his name in Hollywood. While he may be transparent with his characters on screen, he is very discreet when it comes to his personal life.
According to Gordon-Levitt, his wife Tasha McCauley, doesn't like the spotlight. She reportedly has degrees in robotics and business administration as well as becoming a mom to their now 2 sons.
The eldest boy turns 2 next month, and the couple just welcomed a new baby boy last month.
In a 2015 interview, he explained that his career choice put him in the spotlight and that was a choice he made. He wants to afford his son that same decision.
“So, for now, I’m just a protective dad, and I want to protect his privacy,” he added.
