Evangeline Lilly opens up about her 'wonderful' baby boy
Evangeline Lilly of "LOST" fame has kept relatively quiet about her personal life since the series came to a close last year. In May, the actress welcomed her first child with boyfriend Norman Kali. Lilly recently opened up about life with her "wonderful" baby boy at the October 2 premiere of her latest film, "Real Steel" with Hugh Jackman.
"My son is wonderful. He is amazing," the 32-year-old actress told Us Weekly. "Real Steel" is set to hit theaters on October 7. The film takes place in 2020, where robots have replaced humans in the boxing ring and Jackman plays a retired boxer turned small-time promoter and Lilly is his love interest.
"Motherhood is a joy! I have dreamed about being a mother since I was 12-years-old and there's nothing disappointing about it," the actress added. "I think everything I say about motherhood sounds so cliche, but it's true."
Lilly has never revealed the name of her child or the date he was born. She was photographed sporting what appeared to be a baby bump in April. The 31-year-old actress has no other children. However, the actress also told the magazine she'd love to expand her family. "If I wasn't working right now, I'd probably be pregnant again!"
It was announced in June that Lilly nabbed a role in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of "The Hobbit," directed by Peter Jackson. The actress will be playing a new character, a Woodland Elf named Tauriel.Her son's father is Lilly's boyfriend Kali, who worked as a production assistant on "LOST," Us Weekly previously reported. The magazine published a celebrity photo of Lilly holding a baby and walking alongside Kali in a supermarket in Hawaii, where much of "LOST" was filmed.
"LOST" debuted in 2004 and depicted a group of people involved in a plane crash, who faced supernatural events on a mysterious island. The Emmy-winning series ended exactly one year ago - on May 23, 2010. Lilly played Kate, a fugitive nicknamed "Freckles" by one of her on-screen love interests, Sawyer, played by Josh Holloway.
Lilly was married to hockey player Murray Hone for a year, after which she dated her "LOST" co-star Dominic Monaghan. Their relationship lasted between 2004 and 2009.
