Jesse Eisenberg, the “Now You See Me” Jewish actor, is going to be a dad. It’s been reported that Eisenberg’s longtime girlfriend Anna Strout is reportedly expecting a baby.
33-year-old Eisenberg and Strout have been together since 2002, other than a brief breakup in 2012. Because of their long time together, the couple clearly has a lot of history. For instance, Eisenberg spent four months volunteering at a domestic violence shelter run by Strout’s mother in Bloomington, Indiana. This is partially why Eisenberg revealed why he loves Strout to Seventeen Magazine in 2011:
“I find people who want to help other people to be the most interesting. I come from a family of teachers, and my friends are teachers, often times in very difficult school situations. My job is so selfish and focused on my own vanity that I like to surround myself with people who are actually helping people throughout their day.”
That’s a pretty good reason. While there’s no official word on when Strout is expecting to give birth to their bundle of joy, it’s easy to guess she’s past her first trimester, largely due to this tweet:

Apparentyly, Eisenberg and Strout, met on the set of The Emperor’s Club where Strout was working as a crew member. The couple currently live close to Bloomington, Indiana–and seem to value their privacy–which can only be a good thing for their child.
Mazel tov to the growing family!
