Henry Cavill, best known for "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," will be slipping into something new: parenthood. The successful actor made this announcement at the premiere of his new film, "The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare." Their first child together was announced to be on the way with his girlfriend, Natalie Viscuso.

"Natalie and I are both very excited. You’ll see much more of that soon," he told Access Hollywood. Meanwhile, Henry Cavill has become a subject of headlines for his personal life ever since he shot into fame, going on to clear the air that he looked up to fatherhood because of his parents and not his co-stars, albeit light-hearted banter from the likes of Henry Golding.

His and Viscuso's relationship, which became public in 2021, has been a favorite topic among his followers. Viscuso herself is quite the accomplished producer, currently serving as VP of Vertigo Entertainment, best known for its blockbuster projects like "It," "Five Nights at Freddy’s," and "The LEGO Movie."

Cavill's Career Shifts

This personal milestone comes during a transformative period in Cavill's professional life.

Most recently, he was in quite a headline when he walked away from two of the biggest roles: Superman in the DC Extended Universe now, under the helm of James Gunn, with David Corenswet taking over the mantle; and Geralt in "The Witcher," with Liam Hemsworth set to replace him in the upcoming fourth season.

But Cavill doesn't stop there: he and Viscuso are going to produce a new TV franchise, "Warhammer 40,000," with Amazon. Next up for Cavill: more buzz. He is set to reteam with "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." director Guy Ritchie on "In the Grey." Their previous collaborations have been some of the best out there, so teaming with Guy again is a cool thing.

"The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare," in which he will also act, alongside its cast made up of Eiza González, Henry Golding, Alan Ritchson, and Alex Pettyfer, tells of a group of special ops during World War II.

It opens in theaters this Friday, adding another charismatic chapter to Cavill's diverse and dynamic career. Moving on and continuing to juggle fatherhood with a growing list of roles on screen, Henry Cavill remains one of the leading stars of cinema with interest from fans and critics alike unlikely to dip anytime soon.
