Rooney Mara is pregnant!

The Oscar nominee is expecting her first child with Joaquin Phoenix, according to multiple reports. This news comes shortly after Mara was spotted out in Los Angeles, delivering flowers to sister Kate Mara on Mother's Day.

"Rooney is about six months along," an insider told Us Weekly. "Joaquin is great and has been accompanying her to appointments."

Mara, 35, and Phoenix, 45, were first romantically linked in Jan. 2017, when they were spotted at a wellness retreat together. This sighting came four years after the actors starred in the movie Her. They later reunited on the 2018 movie "Mary Magdalene."

In May 2017, the private pair confirmed their romance during the Cannes Film Festival. Two years later, the couple sparked engagement rumors when Mara was photographed wearing a diamond ring. Later that same year, Phoenix offered some rare insight into their relationship during an interview with Vanity Fair.

Joaquin Phoenix's Most Candid Quotes

In the interview, Phoenix revealed that he thought Mara "despised" him while working on the film "Her" together. However, he later learned that a "shy" Mara liked him too.

"She's the only girl I ever looked up on the internet," the actor told the outlet. "We were just friends, email friends. I'd never done that. Never looked up a girl online."

Mara was by Phoenix's side during award season earlier this year, as he scooped up accolades for his work in "Joker." Phoenix even gave his leading lady a sweet shout-out during his acceptance speech at the 2020 Golden Globes, where he won for Best Actor in a Drama.

To win the award, Phoenix beat out Christian Bale, Antonio Banderas, Adam Driver and Jonathan Pryce. Phoenix kicked off his speech by stating that he's "inspired" by his fellow nominees.

"Some I've reached out to you personally, some I'm still a little too intimidated by, even though we share the same agent...Hi Christian, you're not here!" Phoenix said while on the award show stage.

He later turned his attention to Mara, who was seated in the audience.

"I love you," he said to Mara, wiping away tears.
