Rachel McAdams has given birth to her first child, according to reports.

The 39-year-old actress and her boyfriend Jamie Linden have welcomed a baby boy, said Hollywood Pipeline.

The celebrity website posted a photo that reported to show the couple carrying their infant, the reports.

It's not known exactly when she delivered her son. 

E! News first reported that McAdams was pregnant back in February.

McAdams has famously kept her private life under wraps, but was spotted with Dear John writer Linden in April of 2016, generating talk that the two were together.

The reports that the two were a couple were confirmed in June of the same year.


McAdams has been keeping a low profile as of late.

She has not been seen on any red carpet since late September.

And in late February, the Mean Girls actress skipped the premiere of her most recent film Game Night, which led to the initial speculation that the star may be with child. 

In 2009, she told People she couldn't wait to become a mother.

"Having a few [kids] would be great. I'm looking forward to it someday," she said.

And she said she hopes to have the same qualities as her own mother.


"My mom is a great inspiration to me. She’s a nurse and very nurturing and gentle. She lets me be who I am. Hopefully, I can take on those qualities and be as great as her."

And in 2010 she told InStyle: "Part of me is very attached to the idea of having children. It’ll depend on if I find the person I want to do that with."

The Oscar nominee's most highly publicized relationship was her four years romance with fellow Notebook star Ryan Gosling.

The two started dating back in 2003 when they were working on The Notebook and broke up in 2007. 

In 2010, McAdams began seeing Michael Sheen who she met while filming Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.

The couple split in 2013 after three years together.
