  • Actress and model Chloë Sevigny has welcomed her first child with her boyfriend, Sinisa Mackovic.
  • Sevigny was recently photographed cradling her baby, whose name and sex are still unknown, outside in New York City during a walk.

Update 5/6/20:

Chloë Sevigny confirmed to The Cut on Tuesday, May 5, that she gave birth to a baby boy.

"When I found out I was having a boy, I had to wrap my head around that, as I am so girly. I don't even have that many boy friends; all of my friends are girls. I just relate better to girls. I'm like, what the hell am I going to do with a boy?" Sevigny said to the outlet three weeks before her due date. "My mom was like, 'This is your comeuppance for not really liking men.' I was like, great. I like men when I'm sleeping with them! But of course, I am thrilled and so excited about the whole thing."

The actress continued, stating that she hopes she can instill in her son in the coming years it's okay and accepted to express vulnerability and complex emotions contrary to previous misogynistic standards typically ingrained in boys.

"I was thinking about how in the beginning, when I first started, how men would treat you and talk about women in such a public way. It wasn't hidden. It was so transparent. And how men can't necessarily get away with that anymore," said Sevigny. "I'm just feeling that hopefully, by the time he's coming of age, there will be even less of that and more male sensitivity and vulnerability being embraced. I'm hoping for a real shift. I'm hoping for more women in power, and more women calling the shots. I just think that will change the game entirely."

Original Story 5/4/20:

One of fashion's most iconic muses is now a new mom.

Actress and model Chloë Sevigny has given birth to her first child, her rep confirmed to Page Six. Currently, no other details—such as the child's name or sex—have been revealed.

Sevigny was photographed out and about in New York City, cradling her newborn and with her boyfriend, Sinisa Mackovic, by her side. For the outside excursion, the actress and the director of Karma Art Gallery were both wearing protective gloves and face masks due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Though news of Sevigny's pregnancy first broke in January, the actress went on to confirm the reports herself with a series of artistic, black-and-white, baby belly-baring portraits shot by director Jim Jarmusch soon after.

Sevigny, who entered the tail-end of her pregnancy amidst the COVID-19 outbreak in New York City, recently told The Cut about what she can't wait to do once the world enters a post-coronavirus era.

"Hopefully I’m not pregnant in this scenario because the answer is: drink like five martinis and smoke a pack of cigarettes. I know we’re not supposed to promote smoking, but I do miss it," said the actress. "I’m very excited to get drunk with friends and dance at The Pyramid after the baby’s out. That frivolous revelry that we used to participate in… Just being able to let go. I can’t wait for us to go dancing and sing our hearts out and cry and twirl about."
