Surprise! 'Avengers' Star Anthony Mackie Welcomes Third Child

By Johnny Lopez


There's a new budding superhero in Anthony Mackie's house.

During an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the Avengers star revealed he and wife Sheletta Chapital welcomed a son recently.

“I recently had my third kid, and it just messed up everything that was my reality,” the 37-year-old said. “It just changes your entire perspective on the world. Even traveling is an issue now — I’ve got to buy five tickets!”

While he didn't give an exact date of the birth or reveal his new little one's name, this is the first time the actor made the news public.

Anthony and his longtime love Sheletta are very private and even kept their nuptials secret after tying the knot in the Dominican Republic in December 2014.

The happily married duo also share two other sons together.

Besides growing his family, Mackie has been extremely busy with his successful acting career.

This year alone he appeared as superhero Falcon in both Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man and co-starred in Black or WhiteOur Brand Is Crisis and Love the Coopers. 

And he next plays opposite Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the holiday comedy The Night Before, which opens Friday.
