Adam Driver quietly became a father two years ago: report

Kylo Ren may have some severe daddy issues, but it appears parenting is going well in Adam Driver's household. The only thing is, nobody knew he had a kid.

Rumors among fans have long circulated, but Page Six just confirmed that the "Star Wars" actor quietly became a dad two full years ago: The actor reportedly shares a 2-year-old son with wife Joanne Tucker.

It's an impressive feat in this age of tell-all tabloids and social media: Despite speaking with press countless times for countless interviews, Driver effectively avoided ever mentioning his wife's pregnancy or the existence of their child.

The exciting news was not, the outlet clarifies, a secret to Driver's own friends and family -- he reportedly talks openly about his child among close acquaintances.

Page Six notes that on rare occasions, Driver has publicly alluded to having a kid. During 2017 shoot with W magazine, he joked that his dog is the most important thing in the world to him, off-handedly remarking, "Like, I have a kid, maybe — but the dog!”

That comment, as well as rumored sightings of the family in Brooklyn, fueled fan speculation on the subject.

The actor has also been vocal about his love for children, telling Newpaper in 2017 that interacting with kids is his favorite part of starring in the "Star Wars" franchise: "If it's for kids, I love it," he said.

Driver starred on HBO's "Girls" starting in 2012, but he became a top-tier movie star upon the release of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in 2015.

He and Tucker wed in 2013.
