Who Is Kirsten Dunst's Baby Daddy?

by Stephanie Maida · January 31, 2018

    She's been everything from a child vampire to a head cheerleader. Now Kirsten Dunst is taking on a brand new role: mother! (And no, we're not talking about a sequel to Darren Aronofsky's trippy-ass film, thank god.)

    Of course, the actress and subtle fashion icon announced her pregnancy in the most stylish way possible - posing in a whimsical designer lookbook for the brand Rodarte. It makes sense. Dunst has been a notable muse for her friends Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sisters behind the dreamy dresses It Girls and insiders have come to covet. And while the star has technically remained mum on the subject (her reps responded to questions about the pregnancy by saying, "The photos speak for themselves."), it's pretty safe to assume that her Fargo co-star turned fiancé, Jesse Plemons, is the baby daddy.

    The two met on the season 2 set of Fargo, and got engaged last January. Nevertheless, they've both been pretty private about their relationship, which kind of explains why we had no idea who he was until like, five seconds ago. (Honestly, we've been holding out hope that she'd get back together with Jake Gyllenhaal, but alas.)

    Black Mirror fans will recognize him as the computer nerd psycho in the first episode of the new season - the one Dunst makes a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo in. The 29-year-old Matt Damon lookalike (who actually portrayed a young Damon in All the Pretty Horses), was also in Friday Night Lights and Breaking Bad, two shows this writer has refused to ever binge-watch. So sue me.

    In any case, congrats to these two! Here's hoping her real-life wedding day turns out better than the one in Melancholia (now that I have seen).
