Vera Farmiga of 'Up in the Air' Gives Birth
Vera Farmiga and Renn Hawkey welcome daughter.
Vera Farmiga is loving life right now. Not only is her career in full swing since 2009's critically-acclaimed "Up in the Air," but Farmiga and her husband Renn Hawkey have just welcomed their second child. Here are the details on Farmiga's delivery last week.
Vera Farmiga and Renn Hawkey married in 2008 and are said to be based primarily on a farm in upstate New York. The pair welcomed their son Fynn in early 2009, and just as Farmiga was preparing to play Gerard Butler's wife in "Machine Gun Preacher" last spring, she found out she was pregnant again. It's said Farmiga had to turn down the part because filming in Africa would have taken place during the second and third trimesters of her pregnancy.

"I just want to have a healthy baby."
