Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead recently welcomed their first child together.
The actors met on the set of the Fargo TV show and at the time, Scottish star Ewan was married to French decorator Eve Mavrakis.
Speculation was rife that coworkers were more than friends after photos of Mary and Ewan looked cozy at the Good Life Eatery, a north London cafe in 2017.
Shortly after reports of Ewan and Mary’s lunch, Eve announced that she and Ewan were officially going their separate ways.
According to People, a friend of the couple confirmed that they had in fact decided to separate earlier in the year, in May 2017, before the snaps were captured.
Page Six reported that Trainspotting star Ewan told Eve about Mary – before the photos made headlines – but that Eve found it hard to believe her partner when he told her he had not acted on his feelings.
A source told the publication at the time: “Eve is sure Ewan and Mary were together before he confessed his feelings for her, it’s hard for her to believe it.”
Mary also divorced around the same time when she broke her marriage to longtime partner Riley Stearns in May 2017.
It then emerged that 36-year-old American beauty Mary and 50-year-old Ewan were an object.
Long before they went public with their partnership, Mary had made it clear that she admitted to Fargo co-star Ewan.
During an interview for the FX Network, she said, “Ewan is amazing.”
And on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ewan didn’t do much to hide his happiness at working with Mary as he exclaimed, “I love working with Mary.
“I knew we were going to get along.”

Then, at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, as the couple stepped out on the red carpet, Ewan thanked Mary during her acceptance speech – and curiously also referred to his ex-wife.
“I want to take a moment to just thank Eve, who has always supported me for 22 years and our four children Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk,” he said – leaving many people shocked to talk about his partner current and ex-wife in the same sentence.
The following year, reports revealed that Mary and Ewan had taken their relationship to a new level by buying a house together.
Radar Online reported that the duo decided to “hide” on private property in Topanga Canyon.
A source said: “They didn’t want to flaunt their romance so they decided to buy in a quiet area where celebrities often hide.
“They’ve been living together for a while now and have talked about the future.”
In 2020, Ewan and Mary got to work together when they both won roles in Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey.
Mary couldn’t restrain her pride in Ewan’s acting abilities as she played villainous Black Mask during an interview with Warner Bros.
“He’s a very good actor and I think he’s one of the most versatile players in the market,” she said.
“So he’s perfect for that because it’s kind of shocking to see him being mean and vile.”
That same year, Ewan and Mary appeared publicly together for the Go campaign in support of Children in Need.
During footage captured for the online fundraising event, they were seen singing together as Ewan strummed a guitar and Mary played the ukulele.
On Sunday evening, Ewan’s daughter Clara announced that her father and Mary had welcomed a toddler.
Clara, whose mother is Eve Mavrakis, shared a sweet photo of herself cradling the new arrival with the caption: “Welcome to the world, little brother. Congratulations to my father and Marie – this is the greatest gift. “
In a second moment, Clara can be seen looking lovingly at her little brother as he looks at her again.
Ewan’s second daughter Esther also posted adorable pictures on social media and revealed the baby’s name.
She wrote: “I met my little pirate-like brother. I recommend! Welcome to the little Laurie family.”
