“Daredevil” star Charlie Cox has a baby on the way and is totally adorable in announcing it
Despite the fact that he plays a total badass on Netflix’s popular show, Daredevil, Charlie Cox is actually a gentle sweetheart IRL. The star just announced that he is expecting his first child with his girlfriend, Jessica Jones co-producer Samantha Thomas.
Because he’s not on social media, Cox announced it in front of a live Q&A panel in Canada over the weekend.
So all the lucky attendees could see his happy glow when he made the news public.
According to E! News, the actor was congratulated by Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada who was moderating the event. He admitted that the timing of leaving his pregnant girlfriend in order to come do these fan events wasn’t perfect since he expected to be a father “very, very soon.”
Since Cox obviously wants to be there for the birth of his child, he joked around with his girlfriend before he left about doing her best to delay her labor.
He said, “My girlfriend [was] pretty amused when I said I was going to Toronto a couple weeks beforehand, by the way. And I went, ‘So, keep your legs closed.'”
He then made a particularly adorable request of Quesada that apparently came directly from his very pregnant girlfriend.
He added, “I kind of feel like I’m putting you on the spot here, but one of the things she said to me before I left was, ‘If you see Joe, you have to convince him to do a Baby Daredevil drawing for us.'”
Quesada was happy to oblige by simply saying, “I can do that.”
We’d like to see it when it’s done, too, so we can revel in all the adorableness that is a “Baby Daredevil” while congratulating Cox on his exciting new arrival!
