Julia Stiles welcomes first child

Cape Town – Julia Stiles and husband Preston J. Cook have welcomed their first child together.

Alongside a snap of the newborn’s hand holding a thumb, Julia revealed their baby named Strummer Newcomb Cook was born on 20 October.

“Strummer Newcomb Cook, born October 20, 2017. Thanks and ever thanks to the extraordinary Doctors, Nurses and staff at Mount Sinai for helping bring this utter joy into our lives.”


The Jason Bourne actress announced her engagement to the camera assistant in January 2016. 

Reports of Julia’s pregnancy spread in June, but it was in August that the actress confirmed she was expecting with a snap of her growing baby bump on Instagram.

A month later, over Labour Day weekend, the couple tied the knot in a shotgun wedding.

Who doesn't love a shotgun wedding? ???
