Ewan McGregor and his girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead have secretly welcomed a son together.
The happy news was revealed by the Trainspotting star’s daughter, Clara, via Instagram on Sunday. Clara, 25, whose mother is the actor’s ex-wife Eve Mavrakis, 55, shared a heartwarming snap of herself with her new brother and congratulated her dad, 50, and Winstead, 36, in the caption.
“Welcome to the world little brother ❤️ congratulations to my Dad & Mary — this is the greatest gift,” she captioned her post.
Ewan’s daughter Esther, 19, also posted, revealing the baby’s cute name: Laurie.
“Met my little brother looking like a pirate. I recommend! Welcome to the family little Laurie 🥰,” she wrote in her own post.
Ewan and Mary Elizabeth have been linked since 2017 after meeting on the set of Fargo. The pair were spotted kissing in photos published by The Sun, while Ewan was still married to his now-ex-wife — Mavrakis.
It appears Clara and Winstead are on good terms, but it wasn’t always this way. Back in 2018, Clara took a swipe at the actress, dissing her on an Instagram fan page.
“Most beautiful and talented woman on earth?? Oh man y’all are delusional. The girl is a piece of trash x,” Clara commented on a photo of Winstead, which she later sais she regretted writing.
“It wasn’t the most mature way to go about things, but I was angry and upset,” she explained in an interview with The Times. “There had been a lot building up to it and a lot to deal with — not to make excuses or anything — but, yeah, it wasn’t my finest moment.”
“I wish them all the best, but I’m staying out of that, for sure,” she added.
As well as the newborn, the actor shares four children with Mavrakis: Clara, Jamyan, 20, Esther, and Anouk, 10.
The former couple, who wed in 1995, finalised their divorce last year after 22 years of marriage. Ewan and Mavrakis split in October 2017.
“It’s disappointing and upsetting,” Mavrakis told The Sun on Sunday at the time, “but my main concern is our four children are OK.”
