Anne Hathaway Shared the First Snap of Her Son on Social Media for the Best Reason
Anne Hathaway may have given birth to her son Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman back in March, but sans for the baby bump pic she posted to her page while still with child, we haven’t seen a whole lot of the little tyke. Now, 11 months later, we’re finally getting a glimpse of the new man in Hathaway’s life, if only in profile.
While she didn’t show Jonathan’s face, following the lead of celebs such as Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who keep their kids out of the public eye in an effort to give them privacy, the Oscar-winner did give us a glimpse of her little babe engaged in some VERY important internet viewing: The Princess Diaries star’s own UN address.
“JRS watching mommy give her speech at the UN yesterday,” she wrote.
Hathaway was on hand to address the group about America’s current parental leave policies, which do not mandate paid leave. “Somehow we and every American parent were expected to be back to normal in under three months without income,” she said. “I remember thinking, ‘If the practical reality of pregnancy is another mouth to feed in your home and America is a country where most people are living paycheck to paycheck, how does 12 weeks of unpaid leave economically work?’ The truth is for too many people, it doesn’t.”
It’s a fight Hathaway is especially passionate about since becoming a mother, putting her own child’s needs above all else — even her own films. As E! News reported, she had to leave the viewing of Alice Through the Looking Glass for a feeding. “I’m sorry. I am a new mother and I didn’t time the feeding schedule — well, like I have any control over it. My kid was hungry, I had to feed him, I missed the first 20 minutes, so I can’t tell you about the beginning of the movie,” she said at the time.
Sounds like Jonathan’s a lucky little boy, indeed! From the looks of things, Hathaway’s already giving him plenty of examples about how badass women can be too.
