Jeremy Renner has confirmed he has secretly married his baby’s mother, Sonni Pacheco.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron star insisted last year that he had no plans to wed Pacheco after watching his parents go through multiple marriages, adding, “It’s not necessarily something I often think about.”
However, despite his previous protest, Renner has now confirmed he is a married man by referring to Pacheco as “my wife”.
In an interview with Capitol File magazine, the actor was asked if he is wed to Pacheco and responded, “Yes… I have tried to protect my family’s privacy, my wife’s privacy. I don’t need her to get hammered with my life. Privacy issues are important because I want her to go about her day without being bothered.”
Renner also flashed his wedding ring at a Washington, D.C. screening of his new movie Kill the Messenger on Tuesday.
It is not known when or where the pair married. Their daughter, Ava Berlin, was born last year.
