Director Victor Kossakovsky revealed the news onstage at the Zurich Film Festival over the weekend, sharing in a Q&A session that Joaquin wasn't able to join him to celebrate their new documentary "Gunda" because of fatherhood duties.

Phoenix, 45, who won the Oscar for best actor in February for the 2019 film "Joker" (which filmed in New Jersey), is an outspoken animal rights advocate and vegan. "His name was. a handsome son called River, so he can not promote it now" While the couple hasn't confirmed the arrival of their son, they never announced the pregnancy in the first place.

Joaquin Phoenix and fiancée Rooney Mara reportedly have welcomed their first child - a boy named after the actor's late brother, River Phoenix.

Joaquin Phoenix, and sister Rain Phoenix, were with River when he died.

The association is "totally on board" with calls from the OHA to apply stricter measures to Toronto, the GTA and Ottawa, she said. He noted the virus is presenting itself differently now and presenting itself differently across the province.

"In virtually every movie that I made, there was a connection to River in some way", Phoenix told Anderson Cooper in a "60 Minutes" interview that aired in January.

Heart and Joaquin's stepfather, Jeffrey, run a non-profit in River's name called The River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding, which works on social justice issues and conflict resolution. "And I think that we've all felt his presence and guidance in our lives in numerous ways".

Phoenix and Mara also co-starred in two other films together: Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot and Mary Magdalene.

The pair is notoriously private about their relationship.
