OSCAR winner Joaquin Phoenix and his fiance Rooney Mara have welcomed a baby boy, called River.
The joyful news was revealed by close friend and director Viktor Kossakovsky.
Viktor let the good news slip while promoting his film Gunda at the Zurich Film Festival on which Joaquin serves as executive producer.
The director explained the actor's absence saying: "He just got a baby, by the way, his name was… a beautiful son called River, so he cannot promote it now."
The happy couple named their first son together after Joaquin's late brother River.
Joaquin paid tribute to the Stand By Me actor River Phoenix after the acclaimed star died in 1993 when he was just 23 back.
