      Back in June 2020, reports suggested that Joaquin Phoenix might be expecting a baby, however, the couple never confirmed the news. Kossakovsky revealed that the reason Phoenix was not able to attend the event was because 'he just got a baby'. He added, "by the way, his name was ... a beautiful son called River, so he cannot promote it now."
