Kirsten Dunst has welcomed her first child with fiancé Jesse Plemons

Actress Kirsten Dunst has welcomed her first child with fiancé Jesse Plemons.

The lovely news were confirmed by a rep for the star to E! News, who revealed she gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

However, the baby name the couple picked for their first offspring has not yet been revealed.

Rumours that Kirsten was pregnant started going round last year, but the Spider-Man star only confirmed the news in January, when she was photographed cradling her baby bump in a series of photos for clothing brand Rodarte’s look book.

New parents Kirsten and Jesse, who’s also an actor and played parts in TV shows like Breaking Bad and Fargo, revealed they got engaged in January last year, after being together for a few months.

The two started dating in 2016, shortly after Kirsten and Garrett Hedlund decided to end their four year relationship.

During a TV interview in June 2017, the Bring it On star discussed the moment Jesse proposed, saying: ‘I was a little sick when [he proposed], which was funny.

‘But that’s good. Sickness and in health, you know – I was in sweats’, she told Jimmy Fallon while appearing on his talk show.

Last year, she had also opened up about her personal life and her desire to have children. She told Marie Claire UK: ‘I’m at a stage in my life where I’m like, I’ve been working since I was 3. It’s time to have babies and chill. You know what I mean?

‘I wasn’t one of those ‘I need a baby!’ people until my goddaughter was born. I love her so much. That love is just like…you can’t experience that unless you have a kid. I put her to bed last night and she woke up this morning and said to her mom, “Where’s Kiki?” I just love that love. That’s what I want.’
