Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol star Jeremy Renner is reportedly a father after his former girlfriend gave birth earlier this week.
According to Us Weekly, Renner’s ex, Canadian model Sonni Pacheco, welcomed a newborn baby girl into the world on Thursday.
The magazine notes that Pacheco, 22, had been staying in the actor’s Los Angeles home while they waited for the arrival of their child.
Pacheco and Renner dated briefly in 2012, but sources say the relationship was never serious.
US Weekly adds that while Jeremy has been ultra-secretive about the pregnancy and baby, his ex has been “going on about her life and not hiding it.”
News of Pacheco’s pregnancy was first revealed in January when Renner was overheard telling former Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria about the forthcoming baby during the Golden Globes.
At the time, the Bourne Legacy actor, 42, reportedly told Eva “I’m going to fly in when her water breaks,” two witnesses revealed.
Eva reportedly was shocked by the news and responded: “I’m so blown away.”

A new baby daughter isn’t the only happy news in Renner’s life in recent days. Earlier in March, Paramount Pictures and MGM announced plans to move forward with a sequel to Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.
The film, an adaptation of the famous Brothers Grimm fairy tale, stars Renner and Gemma Arterton as a grown up Hansel and Gretel who have become famed bounty hunters dedicated to mercilessly exterminating witches.
The movie debuted on January 25 and has grossed about $206 million worldwide on a budget of roughly $50 million to make.
