They first met filming 2013's 'Her', in which they played a divorced couple. Joaquin thought that Mara "despised him" at first, but then he realized that she was just shy and liked him back too.

The pair got engaged last year. "She's the only girl I ever looked up on the internet," Phoenix told the media about Mara in November.

Victor Kossakovsky, the director of 'Gunda', a documentary that Joaquin produced, explained the Joker's player absence at the 2020 Zurich Film Festival by revealing the actor's new arrival. 

"He just got a baby by the way," Kossakovsky said on stage. "A beautiful son called River." 'River' was the name of Joaquin Phoenix's brother that died in 1993 at age 23. Such a heartwarming story!
