Jamie Dornan just welcomed his second baby into the world with his wife Amelia Warner. That’s probably why the onscreen chemistry with Dakota Johnson for Fifty Shades Darker has been flailing a bit. Let’s hope that the new daddy can step up his game with Dakota soon!
Maybe the fact that he had to leave Amelia Warner so soon after she had the baby made him feel bad.
“The actor and his wife recently welcomed their second child,” reports E! Online. “Details including the baby’s name and sex were not immediately available. Photos of Warner pushing a stroller in Notting Hill surfaced online Monday, and the following afternoon, Dornan was photographed back on the set of Fifty Shades Darker in Vancouver.”
Jamie Dornan has been known for advocating the joys of fatherhood to everyone he knows.
“It’s amazing. I love fatherhood,” he said according to British Vogue. “These last couple of years have been quite something. But we’re enjoying it.”
He also went on to explain that “People are so f—–g down about having kids.” He explained, according to Vogue, that he was “discouraged by people’s attitude”, but he found energy in people who said having a baby was “the best thing” and that he was “going to love it.”
He has even written his Twitter profile to reflect his excitement about being a father. His blurb reads, “Father. Husband. Actor. Bad Golfer.”
Now having a second baby is about to make his life a lot more eventful and interesting!
But the expansion of the Dornan family isn’t necessarily making his fans happier. The fact that his great relationship with his wife and his dedication to his family affected his onscreen chemistry with Dakota Johnson has disappointed a lot of Fifty Shades Darker fans.
“They were named ‘worst onscreen couple’ at the Razzie Awards earlier this year for their lack of chemistry in the first Fifty Shades of Grey movie,” reports Daily Mail. “And things don’t look much steamier between Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson this time around on the set of 50 Shades Darker in Toronto. The on-screen couple were seen sharing a limp and awkward kiss.”
This rumor comes right after Dakota revealed some juicy details about the upcoming Fifty Shades movie. During an interview with Andy Cohen, Dakota Johnson revealed, “Yeah, I’m going to get him fully naked in the next one,” and added that she also wants Jamie Dornan, 33, to be completely nude in 50 Shades Darker.
Sounds like it would take a lot more than a limp and awkward kiss to reignite their fire.
The male Fifty Shades Darker star has been doing his best to live up to his duties as the hottie in the franchise. Check out a photo of him making his media rounds below!
Despite the fact that the shooting may not be going super well, Dakota Johnson is trying to have an optimistic attitude.
“She’s presently filming Fifty Shades Darker, the second film in the hit franchise based on author E.L. James’s blockbuster trilogy,” reports Daily Mail. “And Dakota Johnson couldn’t have looked any happier about it on Monday. The smiling 26-year-old laughed out loud as she strolled with a female member of the crew.”
Seeing how much money is on the line for this franchise means that everyone on set is prepared to work hard for it. According to the same article, “Fifty Shades Of Grey made $571 million worldwide in early 2015, a hefty return on its estimated $40 million budget,” meaning that the sequel has the potential to become a bigger hitter.
