On- and offscreen paramours Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are expecting a baby. According to Entertainment Weekly, the “True Blood” stars will welcome a new addition to their family in the fall.
This is 29-year-old Paquin’s first pregnancy, while Moyer will be a proud new papa for a third time. He has two children from previous relationships.
Paquin and Moyer met and fell in love during the filming of the first season of “True Blood,” on which their characters Sookie and vampire Bill Compton engage in a heated romance. They were married in 2010 in Malibu, California. Both actors will reprise their roles on HBO’s vampy soap when it returns for a fifth season on June 10.
The details surrounding new episodes of the Alan Ball-created drama are always kept under wraps until air time, but Moyer did tell MTV News he’s hoping his character switches things up this season and gets to hook up with Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård).
“My missus got to have a go with him last year, so I think it’s my turn,” Moyer said with a smile. “I know [Alex] is very excited about that.”
In fact, Skarsgård did seem very enthused about the prospect of more Eric and Bill action, particularly when we brought up the possibility of moving forward with their obvious bromance.
“That’s been fun. Stephen is awesome. I love working with him,” Skarsgård said of Moyer. “It’s an interesting dynamic between those two guys, those two characters. I could see that. I don’t know. I haven’t read — they’re breaking season five now, so I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m sure there’s going to be some nice Bill and Eric moments.”
