Does Rashida Jones Have Kids?
Rashida Jones was born into a famous family and knows a lot about what it means to live your life in the spotlight. Perhaps that’s why she is famously quiet about her personal life, keeping both her love life and her family a secret from prying paparazzi.
Fans may be curious to know more about what the actress, best known for her portrayal of Ann Perkins on the beloved sitcom Parks and Recreation, is up to. Read on to find out more about Jones’ personal life and how many kids she has.
Who has Rashida Jones been linked to?
Jones has had her fair share of celebrity relationships, linking up with several famous actors and musicians over the years. Some of these trysts were short-lived and only rumored and others were substantial relationships resulting in engagements and long-term commitments.
One of Jones’ longer relationships was with Tobey Maguire. She dated the Spiderman star for more than three years just as he was rising in fame.
Shortly after her split with Maguire, Jones began dating Mark Ronson. He even proposed to her with a customized crossword puzzle, but the match fizzled out before they tied the knot.
Following these longer relationships, Jones was casually linked to fellow castmate John Krasinski. The pair met on the set of The Office and played characters with a similarly short-lived relationship.
She also briefly dated Seth Meyers and stayed close enough to him after the split to later attend his wedding. Incidentally, at Meyers’ wedding is where she met her next beau: Colin Jost. Jones and Jost dated for a few years, only to split. Jones is currently dating Ezra Koenig.
Rashida Jones and Ezra Koenig have kept their relationship quiet
While Jones and Koenig have openly been seen together at many events since they apparently began dating sometime in 2016, neither of them has officially confirmed the relationship or allowed their publicists to make a confirmation. In the past, Jones has been vocal about her frustration with the institution of marriage.
“Things are changing so much,” she explained. “Especially this country, we have kind of failed with marriage. We’re so protective of this really sacred but failed institution. There’s got to be a new model. I don’t know what it is, but maybe it’s like 10 years with a lease to buy or rent to own.” In the same interview, she expressed dislike for the showiness of relationships: “It [marriage] doesn’t buy you anything. It just buys you a really big s–tty pageant of a wedding to make other people happy.”
Perhaps these feelings about the spectacle of marriage influence the couple’s decision to keep their own relationship status under wraps.
Rashida Jones and Ezra Koenig had a “secret” baby
It’s perhaps understandable to keep the press out of your love life, but Jones and Koenig went one further when they managed to conceal an entire pregnancy from the public. In September 2018, news outlets began reporting that Jones had given birth to her first child, but the couple had made no announcement leading up to this exciting addition and did not release any information about the baby after the birth.
In fact, it was only through birth certificate records that PEOPLE was able to confirm that Jones had given birth to a son: Isaiah Jones Koenig. Jones is not the first celebrity to keep her pregnancy a secret — Kylie Jenner famously did so as well — but her ability to keep her personal and family life out of the spotlight is fairly impressive.
With that in mind, we never really know when we might see another addition to the Jones-Koenig family, so we’ll have to keep an eye out.
