Zoe Kazan reveals she quietly welcomed second baby with partner Paul Dano weeks ago
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Zoe Kazan in her recent TV interview gave a surprise to many after revealing she quietly welcomed her second child with husband Paul Dano. The actress was asked by presenter Hoda Kotb on Monday, November 14, “how long ago” she had her second child. To which she replied, “Three weeks ago, our second child [was born].” The 'Ruby Sparks' star did not spill the beans on her child’s gender or name during the interview. What’s more interesting is that before she talked about her motherhood on the ‘Today’ show, it was just three days back when the news of her pregnancy really came out.
Kazan had flaunted her baby bump for ‘Marie Claire’ cover story, published on Friday, November 11. She talked about her motherhood, though, Kazan didn’t reveal much about her expanded family, “Everyone talks about work-life balance, but it’s also really hard to balance your priorities.” The 39-year-old actress recalled one particular instance where she struggled to keep up, “I wanted to be the person who took my daughter to her first day of preschool, and I couldn’t do that because I felt like this job, this work was as important as that. And vice versa.”

Kazan and Dano have kept their family life mostly quiet on purpose ever since tying the knot in 2007, and had their first child, Alma Bay in 2018. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show' in 2018, Dano admitted that he was "so in love" with Alma but at the same time he was "so tired," reports PageSix. The 'Swiss Army Man' actor explained, “It’s so extreme. Your heart has gone like supernova in one sense.”
On the other side, his wife Kazan reflected on how the couple is "learning how terrifying" it is to raise kids together. However, she added that motherhood has been an "overwhelming" experience in a 2018 interview with ES Magazine, and added, “Everything looks different on the other side of having a child.”
She continued, "Any piece of this fall would feel like a red letter day, but altogether it’s a little overwhelming. Everything looks different on the other side of having a child. It’s terrifying. We’re only six weeks in so we are trying to learn a lot about this person and what they need, and how to do the really simple things that seasoned parents know how to do. We both [planned to] put aside this time not to work so we could be with our baby, but at four weeks I was doing fittings for press events,” as per the report.
