Tom Hardy welcomes third child?

TOM Hardy has reportedly welcomed a baby boy with his wife Charlotte Riley.

The 41-year-old actor – who already has 10-year-old son Louis with Rachael Speed, and a three-year-old daughter with Charlotte whose name has never been revealed to the public – is believed to have welcomed his third child into the world last month, with sources claiming the tot has been named Forrest in a nod to the titular character from Forrest Gump.

An insider told The Sun newspaper, “The couple are over the moon with the new addition to the family. Friends are already saying that the baby boy looks exactly like Tom.

“They’ve been laying low over the festive period so they can get used to having a busier household and adjusting to the needs of a newborn.

“They love the name Forrest as it’s earthy and strong. Tom has always found the movie Forrest Gump very inspiring and enjoyable and thinks it fits.”

As of the time of writing, neither Tom nor Charlotte have commented on the reports.

Meanwhile, the Venom star admitted in August last year that he doesn’t think there’s a “harder job on the planet” than parenting. – BANG!
