Adam Driver, best known for his roles in Star Wars and Marriage Story, is making headlines once more. According to reports, Driver and his wife, Joanne Tucker, are expecting their second child.
The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Kylo, in 2016, and are notoriously private about their personal lives. Despite his low profile, Driver has spoken openly in interviews about the impact of fatherhood on his life and career, as well as his commitment to balancing his personal and professional lives.
In this article, we’ll look at the couple’s growing family, Driver’s professional accomplishments, and his work advocating for veterans’ rights.
Previous Pregnancy and Parenthood
Kylo, the couple’s first child, was born in 2016. Driver and Tucker have kept their personal lives private, but Driver has spoken about the impact of fatherhood on his life and career in interviews.
Driver stated in a 2017 interview with The New Yorker, “Being a parent entails more than just the physical. When you have a child, you are far more emotionally invested in a character because that is who will inherit your experiences.”
He went on, “Your experience is no longer just yours; it is also your child’s. As a result, you want to be able to share that with your child in a way that he or she will be proud of.”

How Many Kids Does the ’65’ Star Have?
Adam keeps his six-year-old son’s name private, but according to a People report, Adam’s first child isn’t particularly impressed by his father’s celebrity.
During an appearance on Late Show With Seth Meyers, Adam revealed that, “[My son] despises movies… He despises them. As his first movie, I finally showed him Mary Poppins. ‘Eh, it was OK,’ he says.”
So, how will Adam and Joanne’s second child differ? In February 2023, Joanne was photographed with a baby bump by PageSix. We’ve yet to meet Adam’s second son (or first daughter!).
Adam and Joanne are typically very private about their family life (aside from Adam cracking jokes to Seth Meyers about his son hating Adam’s latest film, 65, despite the fact that Adam only did the film because his son likes dinosaurs!)

Who is Joanne?
Did you know Joanne co-starred in one of Adam’s movies? The actor appeared in the 2019 film The Report, which starred her husband. She also enjoys dancing.
According to Adam, Joanne helped him readjust to civilian life after being discharged from the Marines.
In 2009, he told Broadway.com that he struggled to communicate with his Juilliard classmates (he made several of them cry initially). Joanne, on the other hand, kept him focused.
“She taught me what Gouda cheese is… and that you shouldn’t talk with your mouth full and spit on the sidewalk,” Adam explained.
