American actor Hamish Linklater, who recently appeared in Netflix’s Midnight Mass, is expecting a third child with his partner Lily Rabe.
On Sunday evening, October 3, the couple were seen attending the Los Angeles premiere of Rabe’s upcoming movie The Tender Bar. During their attendance, the actress’s growing baby bump was clearly seen.
During the premiere, the soon-to-be parents of three looked amazing as they took turns cradling Rabe’s stomach. When Linklater was seen rubbing his hand over his partner’s stomach, a million-dollar smile was drawn by the American actress.
The Good Wife actress donned a long sleeve floral frock that highlighted super feminine frills on the sleeves and at the neck. She had tied back her blonde hair in a high ponytail with soft tendrils framing her face. Additionally, her glow was further seen through her magenta lipstick.
As for her partner, Linklater, he looked handsome as he wore a black suit with a white button-down.
The public appearance came just one week after it was confirmed that she was pregnant with a third child with Linklater’s baby. The news of her pregnancy was first confirmed to People by Rabe’s rep, just after her red carpet debut at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures Gala on September 25.
Linklater and Rabe first got blessed with a baby in March 2017 when Rabe gave birth to a baby daughter. Over three years later, in August 2020, People reported that Rabe gave birth to a second baby, a daughter, in June of that year.
As of now, none of them have revealed the names of their two daughters. Perhaps, they are looking to keep their children out of their limelight. And, the same might be done when they welcome their third child.
Hamish Linklater and Lily Rabe’s Relationship Timeline
The present parents of two have been together for more than eight years.
Linklater and Rabe first met each other in 2010 when they starred opposite each other in the production of The Merchant of Venice. However, as Linklater was in another relationship at that time, nothing happened between them.
It was three years later, in 2013, after Linklater had become single for quite a time that things got forward between them. In the same year, they eventually began dating each other.
As the two’s relationship took forward, they took the decision to stay quiet on their personal life matters. Their togetherness continued as they relished each other’s company, while also maintaining secrecy.
In July 2015, during an interview with The New York Times, it was clearly noted that the duo chooses to remain private and opts out to nerd over their shared love of Shakespeare and the art of acting instead.
However, despite their privacy, it can be easily seen the love and care they have for each other. Their bond got further strengthened when they welcomed children. And though they are yet to share the wedding vows, the boyfriend-girlfriend duo is still going strong.
Before his relationship with Rabe, Linklater was in a marital relationship with a playwright named Jessica Goldberg. They married in January 2002 and ended their relationship almost a decade later, in 2012.
From his marriage with Goldberg, he has a daughter named Lucinda Rose Linklater.
