Elijah Wood revealed that he and Mette-Marie Kongsved secretly welcomed their second child together in 2022.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal on Monday, the “Lord of the Rings” actor gave a glimpse into his morning routine, which usually starts with his “3-year-old son and a 14-month-old daughter” waking the couple up “pretty early.”
This is the first time that Wood, 42, has mentioned having two children as the actor and his partner lead very private lives.
Reps for Wood and Kongsved did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
The couple — who worked together on the 2017 film “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” — welcomed their first child, Evan, in a similarly quiet manner in 2019.
In fact, it wasn’t until 2020 during an appearance on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” that he disclosed the birth of his first child.
He told Meyer, “And that night, I found out we were pregnant. On Christmas Eve.”
During his chat with WSJ, Wood explained that only those close to the couple knew about his children through a private Instagram account.
“I wanted to be able to share photos that I didn’t necessarily want to share with the world,” Wood said. “An account that’s public-facing would really change what I share.”
Back in 2018, Wood and Kongsved confirmed their relationship after they were spotted holding hands in Pasadena, Calif.
While the two have sparked engagement rumors in the past when the Danish producer was seen wearing a ring on her left hand in 2019, the duo’s relationship status appears to be unchanged today.
