Do they have any children together?

While they might not be officially married, that has not stopped them from starting a family together.

Over the years, the happy couple have welcomed two children together, their most recent being born in May 2021.

“He’s an angel, but he’s a hungry angel. And a heavy angel,” Dunst said of her four-month-old son James Robert in an interview with the New York Times.

In 2018, the couple welcomed their first son Ennis Howard who is now 3 years old.

Ennis made his first public appearance back in 2019 after Dunst was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“Seeing the kind of mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend and cohort you are is why I and all of your friends and everyone else are here today and why we all love you,” Plemons said about his fiancé at the ceremony. “It’s for the incredibly generous and amazing person that you are.”

While the couple are now a family of four, Dunst revealed back in 2019 that she is not in any rush to get married, but it is unknown if her feelings have changed after giving birth to their second child.

“We’re about as married as you can get,” Dunst told PorterEdit at the time. “My mom was like, ‘But when are you guys getting married?’ And I said, ‘Mom, I’m not going to get married when I’m pregnant. I want to have fun and have a drink. I mean, we’re paying for this wedding. I’m paying for the bar! I want to enjoy it.'”
