In the 1990s, Australian-British actor and artist Natalie Imbruglia, 44, achieved great success with the monstrous hit "Torn", and was a well-known face all over the world.
She has since released several albums, starred in numerous films and made various TV appearances, including guest appearances on "The X Factor."
On New Year's Eve 2003, he married Silverchair vocalist Daniel Johns, 40, but the marriage was not to last. The two lived on both sides of the world, the one in England and the one in Australia, and in January 2008 they announced a divorce.
Used seed donors
Both before and after the divorce, Imbruglia was linked to a number of celebrities, including Lenny Kravitz, 55, David Schwimmer, 52, and Sam Branson, 34, the son of businessman Richard Branson, 69, according to Ranker.
Her last romance was with Matt Field, a relationship she apparently confirmed in 2017, Hello! Magazine. The two also took photos together at the gallery's opening last year, the Daily Mail reports, but now the relationship may seem over.
The night before Wednesday, the star shared on Instagram an announcement saying she became the mother of a young boy named Max Valentine Imbruglia. Baby news comes months after the 44-year-old revealed she was pregnant – but not with any boyfriend.
– I'm expecting my first child. For those of you who know me, this is something I've been wanting for a long time. It is a blessing to me that this is possible with the help of IVF and a sperm donor. I will say nothing more about it, she wrote on Instagram when she discovered her pregnancy in July, Daily Mail reports.
In retrospect, this Instagram post has obviously been deleted as well.
A baby dream for several years
In a 2015 interview with the Evening Standard, Imbruglia – who was single at the time – expressed her desire to become a mother and hoped to meet someone with whom she could raise a family.
At the same time, she came up with the idea that she could become a mother in the future:
– I still hope to meet someone. And yes, I’ll probably look for other options if I don’t, but I still have time right now. I'm not stressed about it. I live in the moment. I would really love to be a mother. And it will happen, the Evening Standard said four years ago.
And now it seems Natalie Imbruglia has decided to take matters into her own hands. In an Instagram post revealing birth, she doesn't hide the fact that it's great to finally fulfill her childhood dream.
– Welcome to the world, Max Valentine Imbruglia. My heart breaks, he writes, along with a blue heart and two smiles with hearts all around.
She's not alone
By the way, Natalie Imbruglia is not the only star who seems to have decided to become a mother herself.
Crazy Men star Jan Jones, 41, gave birth to a son, Xander, 8, in the fall of 2011, but has never revealed who his grandfather is. Also winning Oscar winner Sandra Bullock, 55, has two children, a son Louis and a daughter, Laila, who she adopted as a single mother.
Several celebrities have also been open about IVF (in vitro fertilization, medical notes) or so-called assisted fertilization. Among them are Chrissy Teigen, 33, who is married to John Legend, 40, and Tyra Banks, 45.
The banks spoke openly about IVF treatments in an interview with People in 2015, but when she became the mother of her son in January 2016, it happened with the help of surrogacy.
