Congratulations! Diane Kruger, 42, and Norman Reedus, 49, just welcomed their first child together, according to Us Weekly. While we don’t yet know the baby’s gender or name, Closer Weekly learned exclusive details about the couple in the day’s leading up to Diane’s delivery — and it sounds like they are going to be the best parents!
Just three weeks ago, a fan working at a restaurant in Newman, GA, near where Norman films The Walking Dead, enjoyed a quick chat with Diane. “I saw Diane at Chicken Salad Chick in Newman, GA on Oct. 11,” said the eyewitness. “She was approachable and down to earth. She told me I was very nice. I could tell she was pregnant, but she did not look very pregnant at the time. I mean you could tell she was pregnant, but not so pregnant that she was going to have [the baby] that day.”
The fan was not sure how long Diane was in Georgia, but said, “I thought she must have been in town to see her [boyfriend] who films not far from there.” An insider added that Diane really didn’t want to leave Norman’s side toward the end of her pregnancy.
Fans previously speculated that Diane was pregnant with Norman’s baby once she posted a black-and-white self-portrait on Instagram this past May. She simply captioned the pic with a footprint emoji, which led fans to send her lots of love online. “CONGRATULATIONS on your pregnancy with Norman! I wish you both all the best,” one fan said and another wrote, “Congratulations, @bigbalghead [and] @dianekruger. Do I hear wedding bells? I wish you a happy, healthy baby.”
Diane didn’t respond to her fans at the time but it was also later assumed that she was expecting when she attended this year’s Cannes Film Festival wearing an oversized gown. According to Page Six, Diane additionally did not drink any alcohol during the trip either. Though we don’t know a ton about Diane and Norman’s Hollywood romance, a source previously told Us Weekly, “They complement one another. They really do work!”
