Hollywood legend Joaquin Phoenix is said to have welcomed a son with partner Rooney Mara.

The pair have reportedly named their son after Joaquin's brother, River Pheonix, who died in 1993 following a drug overdose.

Victor Kossakovsky dropped the bombshell at Zurich Film Festival during a screening for the movie Gunda, in which Joaquin was executive producer.

Addressing Joaquin's absence from the screening, Kossakovsky said: "He just got a baby, by the way, his name was… a beautiful son called River, so he cannot promote it now."

The happy couple who met on the set of the 2013 film, Her, are believed to have started dating in 2016 but have kept their lives private.

Joaquin and Rooney who confirmed their engagement back in May 2019 have been isolating at their California home together during the coronavirus outbreak.

Daily Star Online has approached representatives for Joaquin and Rooney.
