Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen and his equally hilarious wife, Isla Fisher, welcomed their third child – and first boy – last month. According to reports that claim to have the little boy’s birth certificate, the couple has named their new addition Montgomery Moses Brian Baron Cohen.
He arrived on 17 March – St Patrick’s Day – joining big sisters Elula, four, and seven-year-old Olive.
Isla, 39, and Sacha, 43, are notoriously private about their personal lives; they let Isla’s baby bump confirm all three pregnancies rather than make an announcement – and last week, her bump-less figure revealed that her third child had been born.
Wedding Crashers star Isla did previously open up to the Telegraph about the importance of family, and her decision to take on supporting roles so she can spend more time with her husband and her children.
“Family is 100 per cent my top priority,” she said in July 2013. “So I’m much more comfortable doing supporting roles right now. And often, they’re the most interesting. You get to be a character actress.”
Isla has also been open about the difficulties she faced during her pregnancies. “I gained 65 pounds (30kg) with my first baby and 70 (32kg) with my second,” she told Fitness Magazine last year. “I had severe morning sickness both times, so I mostly ate supersize bowls of white pasta with loads of butter and cheese because that was the only thing that took away the nausea.”
Isla and Sacha got engaged in 2004 and were married in Paris in March 2010. The actress has described being married to Sacha as "like winning the lottery”.
“Choosing to be together every day is incredibly romantic. I love marriage. I think it’s a wonderful institution and it’s the most important decision you make,” she said.
“Life is filled with highs and lows, and you have a best friend to share it with you. It’s amazing. It’s like winning the lottery, having a good partner.”
