Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender have been spotted with a baby several times. Now the Swede confirms the secret birth.

Paparazzi recordings, which Alicia Vikander (32, “The Danish Girl”) showed this year, initially with a growing belly and later with a baby in her arms, were actually confirmation enough for the actress’s motherly happiness. Now the Swedish Oscar winner is still making it official – and confirming it in conversation with the US magazine “People” indirectlythat she and her husband Michael Fassbender (44, “Alien: Covenant”) have secretly become parents.

New mom Alicia Vikander has “a new understanding of life as such”

“I now have a completely new understanding of life as such,” says the 32-year-old, reflecting on her new role as a mother. “That’s pretty nice and obviously it will add a lot to any of my future work.” The “Tomb Raider” actress doesn’t want to reveal much more. When asked how her life has changed since she was born, she says succinctly: “I’m just enjoying finding out that moment.”

Vikander and the Irish-German Fassbender met and fell in love in 2014 on the set of the on-screen romance “The Light Between Oceans” (2016). In October 2017, the couple, who keep their private life strictly out of the public eye, said yes on the Spanish Balearic island of Ibiza.
