Kirsten Dunst reveals the name of her second son with fiancé Jesse Plemons… four months after quietly giving birth
Kirsten Dunst has finally unveiled the name of her baby boy, four months after welcoming him into the world with fiancé Jesse Plemons in May.
The 39-year-old Golden Globe winner revealed she chose the name James Robert for her son in a new interview with the New York Times on Friday.
‘This is the newest guy, the Big Kahuna,’ Dunst said of her secondborn, who weighs 18 lbs. ‘He’s an angel, but he’s a hungry angel. And a heavy angel.’
She and Plemons also share their three-year-old son Ennis, whose face she has also chosen to keep private from the public.
In late March, the star first announced she was expecting her newest bundle of joy on the cover of W magazine’s Volume 2 The Director’s Issue.
Kirsten called on her Rodarte designer friends Laura and Kate Mulleavy to create a custom gown for the ‘All Dressed Up With Nowhere to Go’ photo shoot directed by Sofia Coppola.

A thick velvet sash rested above her belly and matched delicate cuffs wrapped around her wrists.
She switched gears into a vibrant floral ensemble complete with feathery cuffs for another classic ’60s inspired display.
On working with photographer Zoë Ghertner, she joked that ‘every shot was on the floor. I was like, ‘I can’t get up.’ I felt like Urkel.’

Dunst formed a relationship with Coppola through the years having first worked with the director in 1999 on The Virgin Suicides.
‘I felt really protected. She made me feel like I was cool, like my teeth were cool, and I was pretty,’ she said.
‘At 16, I did not think anything of myself. And it’s nice to have had another woman celebrate that transition, rather than it having been sexualized through a man’s perspective.’

The pair then joined forces for the film Marie Antoinette in 2006 and once again in 2017 on The Beguiled.
‘It’s just so beautiful to have that kind of friendship where you’ve seen each other have children,’ Dunst said. ‘There are few collaborations, to be honest, where it lasts, where someone knows you that long that’s not your family.’
