Russian filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky has revealed some beautiful – and emotional – news about Hollywood couple Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara.

Speaking at a Q&A session at the Zurich Film Festival over the weekend, Kossakovsky announced the pair had welcomed their first child together.

“He just got a baby, by the way,” said Kossakovsky, explaining Joaquin’s absence from the festival.

And that wasn’t the only information he shared. Kossakovsky also confirmed the baby’s name:

“His name was…a beautiful son called River.”

The baby is named after River Phoenix,  Joaquin’s brother who died in 1993 at the age of 23.
