Jeremy Renner has a baby on the way and will become a father for the first next month, according to reports on Wednesday.
According to fellow audience members at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, the "Bourne Legacy" star shared the baby news with Eva Longoria.
During the awards ceremony, witnesses told Us Weekly that Renner and Longoria were talking on the smoking patio.
"[Renner] was saying, 'I'm going to fly in when her water breaks,'" the actor divulged, according to the sources.
"Then Eva said, 'I'm so blown away,'" the insiders added.
Furthermore, multiple reports have indicated that the mother of the child is an ex-girlfriend of the actor's, who is due to give birth some time next month.
"They used to date but it wasn't serious," Us Weekly's source added before explaining that Renner is "being ultra-secretive about it… but she has been going on about her life and not hiding it."
It comes as no surprise that the Academy Award-nominated actor is keeping the life-changing event under wraps. Last year, the private actor was also forced to vehemently denied rumors that he was gay while speaking to The Hollywood Reporter.
"I want my personal life to be personal," started the actor at the time. "And it's not [expletive] true."
Renner joins a long list of Hollywood A-listers who are set to become parents this year. Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna announced in December that they are expecting their first child, while Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will also become parents for the first time later this year.
Other expecting celebrities include Kristen Bell, Jessica Simpson, Amber Rose, and Britain's Katherine Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge.
Meanwhile, Renner is promoting his upcoming movie "Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters," due in theaters Jan. 25.
The 42-year-old actor is well-known for his roles in films such as "The Hurt Locker," "Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol," and "The Town," among others.
