Jeremy Renner lets slip he has married

Jeremy Renner has admitted he wed his daughter’s mother, Sonni Pacheco, in secret.

The Hurt Locker star has 17-month-old daughter Ava with Canadian model Sonni Pacheco. There were rumours the pair had split up, continuing to co-parent their child, but he put them to rest during a recent interview.

"I have tried to protect my family's privacy, my wife's privacy. I don’t need her to get hammered with my life. Privacy issues are important because I want her to go about her day without being bothered,” he explained to Capitol File magazine.

And it’s these attempts at preserving privacy that are likely to be the reason no one was aware the pair had wed. Jeremy also voiced his opinions about being hounded by paparazzi.

"It's annoying being followed when I'm with my family," he sighed. "It's not just me - everyone [in Hollywood] has to deal with that. I’ve been talked about a whole lot, because the less I put out there, the less people know, and it makes it interesting, I assume."

Jeremy, 43, is currently promoting his drama thriller Kill the Messenger, which also stars Michael Sheen and Ray Liotta. He also has an Avengers, Mission: Impossible and Bourne sequel in the pipeline, meaning he could be set to spend a fair amount of time apart from his family.

"The only thing I think about when I’m not with my baby is, 'How do I get to my baby?' I need to get to her, and I’m very miserable when I don’t see her. I really love being a father," he gushed.
