Academy award winning actress, Charlize Theron’s former boyfriend, Stuart Townsend has moved past his break up with her. According to the Irish actor’s brother Dylan, Townsend has settled down with a woman in Costa Rican, with whom he already has a baby, with another is on the way.
“Aw! That is so unfair Stuart Townsend, how can you do that to us” was our initial reaction when we first heard about it. While Stuart settling down with a family of his own is bit of a shock for all of us, we can’t deny the fact that his own brother confirmed the news.
The fact about Townsend’s secret family was well-kept by the actor until May this year, when his brother claimed that Townsend had bought a piece of land in the country and settled down with his new girlfriend cum partner. And according to Dylan, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen star is expecting his second baby with his present lover.
“I'm really happy for him… he's been off the map for the past year," Dylan expressed his happiness to Goss. He added: "He's in Costa Rica now, he's bought land in Costa Rica and he hasn't been living in LA for the past six months – he's got a whole new family, yeah, and no one knows about it."
Dylan revealed that the couple was expecting their second child together. "He's about to have a second child and he's fallen in love with a Costa Rican girl as well and he has a piece of land so, yeah, totally new journey for him," stated the proud uncle.
After Townsend’s former relationship with Theron ended unceremoniously a few years ago, the popular actress found love with Oscar winning actor, Sean Penn. And now, it looks like the actor is moving on as well and has decided to start his life afresh.
It must have been quite difficult for Stuart to forget Theron and fall in love with this woman as the former couple was so much in love with each other. It was rather hard for us accept that this pair split up just like that.
The news of his secret family has shocked countless fans, just like the news of his break up with Theron did. The former pair spilt following nine years of dating. After the break up, the Queen of the Damned star tried to keep himself as low profile as possible as the split shattered his life as well as career, while Theron’s flourished with several blockbuster movies on her portfolio.
The couple, who met each other on the set of the movie Trapped, was so much in love that they used to call themselves ‘husband and wife’ and even stated on media that they didn’t need a wedding ceremony to be considered a married couple.
"We didn't have a ceremony," he told back when they were still together. "I don't need a certificate or the state or the church to say otherwise. So no, there's no big official story on a wedding, but we are married.... I consider her my wife and she considers me her husband," he added.
Shortly after their unofficial divorce, Theron adopted a son named Jackson while her ex-love flame settled down with a family of his own and both of them are perfectly happy.
Though Townsend hasn’t been very active in the show biz after his nasty break up with Theron, he is quite active on Twitter. He often posts shirtless pics on the social networking site.
Townsend has an estimated net worth of $5 million.
