The Dark Knight Rises star and his wife are known to keep much of their personal lives away from the spotlight, but their pregnancy wasn't much of a secret after they stepped out for a stroll together in Beverly Hills this past spring.
The couple, who tied the knot in a private ceremony in 2014, welcomed their first son in August 2015.
In an interview on Live! With Kelly and Michael, Gordon-Levitt said being in the public eye was a great thing for him as an actor, but not so much for his family.
"My son, he's just a baby, you know? He hasn't made the choice to be in the public eye, and that's a choice that I would like him to be able to make when he's older," he said. "When he can think about these kinds of things and make that decision for himself. And so, for now, I'm just a protective dad, and I want to protect his privacy."
