Stellan Skarsgard Welcomes a Baby At 61, And That Too His 8th!

Submitted by on August 27, 2012 – 2:00 pm Comments

Stellan Skarsgard is a fairly known actor and a familiar face who has recently played pivotal parts in blockbusters like, ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ and ‘The Avengers’. But there are probably few who know that he has 7 children and has recently welcomed his 8th child into this world. It hence wouldn’t be wrong to say that, his passion for movies is only surpassed by his passion for having children.

The child, a healthy boy, was born to wife Megan Everett in Stockholm. The couple shares one other child, three-year-old son Ossian. The other six children that Skarsgard has, is from a previous marriage to My Skarsgard. Alexander, Gustaf, Sam, Bill, Valter and Eija are the six, four of whom have chosen the same profession as their father’s.

Alexander is one of the four who has gone into acting and is relatively more known as an actor than the other three. He plays vampire Eric Northman on HBO’s True Blood and currently stars in his own Calvin Klein fragrance campaign. Anyone who has seen him perform can vouch for the fact that, he has inherited his father’s histrionic skills.

Stellan 61 though, has a much more prolific film career than any of his children; his prolific film career can in fact be compared to the rate at which he has made additions to his family. It also says a lot about his fitness and his patience, if at the age of 61 he can find the courage to not only make movies but also change nappies.

It would be interesting to see if the newborn in the future chooses to follow on his father’s footsteps. It would also be interesting to see if Stellan’s interest in having more children wanes after this child, or the passion remains intact. One could also argue that, there might come a point when Stellan would have the good fortune of welcoming another child of his own, along with welcoming a grandchild into this world.

Mel Gibson needs to watch out as he has competition, and only time will reveal the eventual winner. Here’s hoping, Stellan doesn’t have to keep making movie after movie, only to put his kids through college.
