British actor Henry Cavill is becoming a father for the first time. His girlfriend Natalie Viscuso is expecting a baby. The “Superman” actor confirmed this to “Access Hollywood.” Fans had previously speculated that she was pregnant because a paparazzi video on TikTok showed the television manager with a clear stomach.

“I’m very happy about it,” said Henry Cavill at the New York premiere of the spy film “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.” He further confessed: “Natalie and I are both very excited.” When the reporter replied that the actor would definitely be “a great father,” Cavill replied with a smile: “Thank you.” He has not yet revealed any further details, such as the expected date of birth or the gender of the baby.

The couple was previously spotted holding hands in New York City on Sunday. Viscuso wore a fitted black dress and matching boots, while Henry Cavill paired a blue jacket with a tan T-shirt and blue pants.

Henry Cavill and Natalie Viscuso announced their relationship in April 2021. The “The Witcher” star posted a photo on his Instagram account in which he can be seen playing chess with his girlfriend. “This is me looking calm and confident just before my beautiful and brilliant dear Natalie destroys me at a game of chess,” Cavill captioned the snap. Viscuso also posted the picture and said she wanted to “teach my dear Henry how to play chess…or…maybe he let me win?” The two then made their red carpet debut in October 2022 in New York City at the premiere of Cavill’s Netflix film “Enola Holmes 2”.

Viscuso works as a television executive at Vertigo Entertainment. Not only does the couple seem to get along well in their private lives, they also work together professionally: in December 2022, both announced that they were working on an adaptation of the game “Warhammer 40,000”. “Fantasy, horror and science fiction are the foundation of my creative language. When Henry introduced me to Warhammer a few years ago, I immediately felt at home,” Natalie Viscuso wrote on her Instagram page at the time.
