Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer Are Having a Baby -- Plus Other Co-stars Who Have Children Together

Yahoo Contributor Network

Actress Anna Paquin and her "True Blood" co-star Stephen Moyer have more than just a hot HBO drama to celebrate. The couple have announced through a rep for Paquin that indeed they will be welcoming a bouncing bundle of joy into the world in the coming months. It will be Anna's first child, while Moyer has two children already.

Paquin made her first splash on the big screen in 1993, co-starring in "The Piano" when she was just 11 years old. She certainly made quite an impression in that film, picking up a Best Supporting Actress Oscar, one of the youngest actors to take home Oscar gold. She worked steadily in the years after, and in 2008 she took the role of Sookie in HBO's smash hit vampire romance-drama, "True Blood," where she met Moyer, and the two would eventually date and get engaged.

We thought it might be fun to take a look at some other couples who met on a set and later had a child together, so here are some of the notable instances.

Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney - Olson and McElhenney star together on FX's hilarious and ribald comedy "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." In 2010 the funny couple welcomed their son Axel to the world, and then just a couple of weeks ago Kaitlin gave birth to Leo, their second son. With genes like theirs, it's a pretty good bet at least one of their boys will be able to crack a room up in a few years.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt - Hollywood's most talked-about couple worked together in the mostly forgettable "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" in 2005. In fact, it was on that film that the recently engaged couple met. Their first biological child together was born a little over a year later and they named their new daughter Shiloh Nouvel . In 2008 Angelina added to the already impressively sized Jolie-Pitt household when she gave birth to twins, a boy named Knox and a baby girl named Vivienne.

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe - Though they've been divorced since 2008, at one time Reese and Ryan were quite a hot couple in Tinseltown. 1999 was a big year for the couple. In that same year, they co-starred in the sexually charged drama "Cruel Intentions," they were married, and just a couple months after that they welcomed daughter Ava to the world. In 2003 their son Deacon was born.
