Jennifer Connelly and Family Pause for a Cause

Jennifer Connelly, Paul Bettany and son Stellan, 5 ½, stopped for a photo Monday night at the Hudson Rise Picnic benefit in New York City.

The event, hosted by the Tribeca Community Association & Canal West Coalition, was aimed at protecting downtown Manhattan’s waterfront, halting the development of a two-acre sanitation facility near the Hudson River’s edge. The family lives near the planned development in the trendy Tribeca neighborhood.

Next up for Paul is a reprise of his Iron Man role in Iron Man II, while Jennifer can be seen in theaters now, in He’s Just Not That Into You.

AW! He looks like such a mesh between both his parents!

That child is a perfect combination of Paul and Jennifer! Never seen anything quite like it!

Lisa Rock on

it was an amazing bash for a very important cause
blighting the tribeca neighborhood and environment with an ugly garbage disposal site is just not acceptable
the organizers did a great job!

I just completely adore his name! Any idea of his middle name, if he has one?

pippi777 on

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of him! He is a perfect mix of Jennifer and Paul. I really love Jennifer and Paul!

Nadel, I have never seen anything of if he has a middle name or what it might be. I’ve looked on several sources, too.

Jennifer Connelly and Naomi Watts are the two women I probably envy the most. Gorgeous!

Allison on

He does look like a perfect mix! He has deep set eyes like Paul but with Jennifer’s color.

I absolutely love his name!!!.Does he have brown eyes or blue?

Lizbette,

I’m thinking he has blue eyes b/c both Paul and Jennifer have them and two blue eyed people can’t have a brown eyed baby.

Stellan is so cute, and I love his name too! And his dad, come to think of it😛

Kelly on

He’s beautiful!

“I’m thinking he has blue eyes b/c both Paul and Jennifer have them and two blue eyed people can’t have a brown eyed baby.”

Actually they can, but it is pretty rare.

Stellan used to favour Jennifer when he was a baby, but I really see Paul in him now. They have the same heart-shaped face and the same nose/mouth.
Nadel, Stellan doesn’t have a middle name, just like Paul and also Jennifer’s other son, Kai.
Dee, Jennifer has dark green eyes, which both and Kai and Stellan have inherited. Paul’s the only blue-eyed member of the family.

Two blue eyed parents can have a brown eyed child. It’s amazing what genes can create. Beautiful family!
