Julia Stiles gives birth to second child with husband Preston J. Cook
Julia Stiles’ family just grew by one.
The “10 Things I Hate About You” star announced Wednesday that she welcomed her second child, a baby named Arlo, with husband Preston J. Cook.
“Welcome to the world, Baby Arlo! ✨ The newest addition to our family, reminding me how infinite love can be. 💖,” Stiles captioned a photo of the newborn’s feet.
“Scroll Forward to see how my 4 year old is taking it…” Stiles added, revealing her son, Strummer, covered their toilet with red marker.
Stiles, 40, revealed back in November that she was pregnant by cradling her growing baby bump on the red carpet of a screening for “The Humans” at New York City’s Village East Cinema.
The “Save the Last Dance” actress wore a black turtleneck dress that hugged her midsection, camouflaging her bump from certain angles until she began holding it.
Stiles married Cook in a self-described “shotgun wedding” in September 2017 while pregnant with Strummer. She gave birth to Strummer two months later in November.
In her social media announcement at the time, Stiles thanked the “doctors, nurses and staff at Mount Sinai” for helping bring “utter joy” into her family’s life.
Stiles met Cook, a camera assistant, on the set of the 2015 thriller “Blackway.” She announced their engagement in early January 2016, though Cook had actually proposed on Christmas Eve at a private residence in Isla Grande, Colombia.
“Best Christmas Ever! 💖,” she captioned a close-up photo on Instagram of the couple’s hands, highlighting her engagement ring.
