·1-min read

Los Angeles, May 21 (PTI) Actor Joel Edgerton has announced the birth of his first child with girlfriend Christina Centenara.

Edgerton, who has been dating Centenera, the fashion director of Vogue Australia, for quite some time, shared the news during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

'I just ran away from the hospital for a moment. I can't even put it into words. I'm in love,' the 46-year-old actor said.

Edgerton, who did not disclose the gender of the newborn, also revealed that he nearly missed the big moment because of his work schedule.

'I was very nervous because I was working in Queensland and there are some border issues with Sydney and Queensland that pop up. I was getting very nervous that I'd get stuck,' he said.

'But I was working with some wonderful people who said, 'We will move heaven and earth to make sure you don't miss something this important',' he added.

Edgerton and Centenera prefer to keep their personal lives away from the spotlight. They never publicly announced Centenera's pregnancy.

The actor currently features in filmmaker Barry Jenkins' limited series 'The Underground Railroad', which started streaming on Amazon Prime Video from May 14. PTI RB SHD SHD
