Rashida Jones Secretly Welcomed A Baby Boy Last Month — And Gave Her Son The Cutest Name!
Actress Rashida Jones is a new mom! Quincy Jones’ 42-year-old daughter has given birth to her first child with boyfriend Ezra Koenig, 34, Us Weekly confirmed on Wednesday, Sept. 26. People later obtained the little one’s birth certificate and revealed Rashida welcomed a baby boy named Isaiah Jones Koenig at 8:36 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 22 in LA.
Though Rashida and Ezra — who is the lead singer of the band Vampire Weekend — have never publicly confirmed their romance, it’s thought that the new parents began secretly dating in 2016.
Rashida has never been married but she was previously engaged to music producer Mark Ronson and has been linked to actors John Krasinski, Colin Jost, and Jon Favreau in the past.
During a 2011 interview with E! News, Rashida candidly opened up about why she might “never” tie the knot. “Marriage doesn’t really buy you anything. I mean, Chris Messina, who is my co-star in [Monogamy] is with my very close friend [producer Jennifer Todd]. They’re not married, but they have two kids and they’re wildly happy. It doesn’t buy you anything. It just buys you a really big s–tty pageant of a wedding to make other people happy,” she said at the time.
The Parks and Recreation actress is one of record producer Quincy’s seven adult children. The 85-year-old music icon is also a father to Jolie Jones Levine (with his first wife, Jeri Caldwell), Martina Jones and Quincy Jones III (with his second wife, Ulla Andersson), Rashida and Kidada Jones (with his third wife, Peggy Lipton), Rachel Jones (with ex-girlfriend Carol Reynolds), and Kenya Julia Miambi Sarah Jones (with ex-girlfriend Nastassja Kinski). Rashida and Ezra’s new baby is Quincy’s third grandchild.
