BACK TO SLIDE

Back in the spring of 2017, a little over a year after Jonathan's birth, a source told E! News that the "Ocean's 8" actress wanted to have at least one more child.

"She wanted to wait until Jonathan was a little older before they started trying again," the source said at the time "She wants Jonathan to have a sibling."

The actress is famously private about motherhood, telling Jezebel in late 2017 that she regretted once posting a photo of the back of her son's head on social media.

"I had never posted a photo of my son, and I decided to post a shot of the back of his head [in March 2017], and almost as soon as I’d done it, I wished that I hadn’t," she explained. "I felt like I had broken some kind of a seal in inviting people into my life. And even though I felt as though I had done it in as protective a way as I could, even though it was a moment I was incredibly proud of, I don’t know that I’ll ever do it again."

Hathaway started dating Shulman in 2008. They tied the knot in 2012.
