Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix expecting second child; at Jesse James premiere

09/03/2007 at 03:30 PM ET

Although they haven’t announced anything, actors Summer Phoenix, 28, and Casey Affleck, 32, are clearly expecting an addition to their family before the year is out. Casey and Summer, who married last year after being together since 2000, already have a son, Indiana August, 3. The new baby will also be a new niece or nephew for actors Joaquin Phoenix and Ben Affleck, and a new cousin for Violet, 21 months.

The couple were snapped attending The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford premiere in Venice at the 64th Venice Film Festival on September 2nd.

Congrats to Summer, Casey, and Indiana–can’t wait to see if it’s boy or girl and what they name him/her…and YAY for Violet getting another cousin…hehe I’d love a photo of all the Affleck wee ones…

CONGRATS to the family and yeah I’d say that’s a baby who will be making it’s entrance relatively soon…lol

morgan on

ugh! It looks like one of those Maternity dresses from the 80’s, i wonder if there is a big bow on her rear too!

congrats to them both! Wonder when she is due.

Jo Ann v. on

I like the dress, not so sure about the shoes ;)

I don’t know Summer Phoenix, is she Joaquin’s sister? I know Joaquin was the only one who came out with a non-original name in the family?

Sarah’s note: Yes, she is his sister.

Kelly on

Cute dress! And cute matching shoes as well. Congrats to the Phoenix and Affleck families.

Campbell on

Ok CBB… how did this one slip by?!? LOL Congrats, they look soooo happy. I’d love to see an updated photo of Indiana. Beautiful couple.

Sarah’s note: Haha – They are uber-private! If I remember correctly, they never announced their engagement, first pregnancy, or marriage, and I don’t think they did an official announcement for Indiana’s birth either.

I was soo shocked when I saw the pics, its so weird beacuse it was like a year ago I saw them and I havent heard anything from them. They are very private. For new pics and Indiana pics visit my group:

I’m not a fan of the name but, Indiana seems more girl to me. Anyone?

Mom2Ethan on

Congrats to the Affleck/Phoenix families! That’s fabulous news!!

If I’m not mistaken, but in the 1980’s when he first started appearing in movies, Joaquin went by Leif. I was a huge River Phoenix fan in my youth, and I do not ever remember hearing him referred to as Joaquin until the late 90’s.

Cute anther little cousin for violet. I know jennifer has 3 on her side, and now ben will have 2, that’s 5 little cousins for violet, how cute.

Nicole on

You’re right about Joaquin going by Lief. The siblings in that family are named River, Lief, Summer, Rain, and Liberty.

Native on

Summer’s son, Indiana, is named after the “young Indiana Jones” that River played. August is also the month River was born.
Liberty has a child too, his name is Rio, which is Spanish for River and also the family nick name for River Phoenix. Liberty owns a store in Florida which sells eco-freindly products.
I don’t believe Rain has any children, but is in a band Papercranes with her husband. They are based out of Florida.
A lot of this information can be found on IMDB.
I’m really happy for Summer and Casey. They are adorable.

Luciana on

wooow… I love Joaquin, he must be so happy with the new baby.. he’s crazy about Indiana..
She must be.. what.. 5, 6 months? I have no idea!
Is there any pics of Indy with Violet???

PSB on

They are both so cute. I’m very excited for their new addition!

Native on

Whoops. My bad. Looks like Liberty has two more kids. This is what it says on IMDB…
“Uncle of Liberty Phoenix’s children Rio Everest, Indigo Orion and another boy, and Summer Phoenix’s son Indiana August.”

Also about the name Leaf…
“Was born Joaquin Rafael, but at the age of four he decided that he wanted a more earthy name, like his elder siblings River and Rain, so while he was raking leaves with his father he decided on Leaf. In the early ’90s he took back his birth name.”

Pardon, I just don’t like to post something incorrect or incomplete. At least if I am misinformed, it is from a source. lol
Peace!

Love the dress. Not so keen on the shoes either, less is more on the bows. Her hair and makeup are great, not fussy. As the ads say, easy, brezy,
cute couple

J-Lin on

Her dress and shoes are so stylish!

Desirae on

I totally love Summer she is beautiful I love her whole outfit. I cannot wait to hear the baby’s name :)

Jessica on

No they arent any photos of Indiana with Violet. When Indiana was little he looked so much like Violet its crazy and Cute.

Meg on

Native, Liberty has Indigo, Rio and a girl, NOT another boy. I believe her daughter is named Scarlett Jasmine. And Rain also has a son Jonas Winter.

Congrats to Summer, Casey and Indiana!

Jessica on

Yes Libby has 2 sons and 1 daughter but Rain Does NOT have any kids, its false information.

niky on

aw, beautiful.

yes Joaquin’s name change was to ‘Leaf’ not ‘leif’ (which is a relativly common name)

Rain does indeed NOT have any children. Liberty has 2 boys- Rio (named after River) and Indigo, and a daughter – Scarlette.
Indiana was also named after River Phoenix- or rather his character in ‘Indiana Jones and the last crusade’. his middle name – August – is the month of River’s birth.

congrats summer and casey!! :)

Native on

Meg and Jess, hey thanks. Looks like IMDB needs to update their bio information on Joaquin.

Meg on

Jessica and Niky, really? There are some information that Jonas Winter born February 7th, 1993 to Rain. I’m confused!

Jessica on

yep it has been spread around the net, mostly I tought it was true ages ago but since I know now it isnt true its false. Also Rain is born in november not in march, also false. There is a book about the family and the writer knows them.

Meg on

Jessica, thank you! It was good to know about false info on Rain.
