Parents are celebrating a milestone: Chris’ biological father will become a father after his “episd” birth in June.
The announcement came on the heels of the release of the latest instalment in the drama-thriller The Night Manager, which is set to debut in the US on Friday, March 9.
As well as Chris Brown, the father of two children, actor Matt Damon, who plays the lead in the film, will be the new father to his first child.
It is thought the pair are expecting the first child in March 2019.
“Chris’ first child is an absolute joy,” Matt told reporters at the Hollywood premiere of the film.
“It’s a joy for me.
It’s an honor and I’m very proud to have that opportunity to help give him a life.”
The Night Manager director David Fincher also said the film would give “a chance to tell a story of hope” and “the story of two brothers” who had “come together”.
“Chris is an amazing father, he’s a great role model, he is so special to us,” he said.
“He’s a very special person.”
Matt, who will also play his brother Ben, will play his father, while Jeremy Irons will play Chris’ brother, Ben.
‘We’re not a family’The film, which has already earned $150 million at the US box office, has already received acclaim.
Critics have praised the film’s portrayal of Chris’ “episodic fatherhood” and its depiction of how the couple deal with their “growing relationship”.
“There’s a lot of heart there,” said The Hollywood Reporter’s Tom Verica.
“There’s so much sadness in there, and there’s an absolute sense of relief.
Chris Brown is a terrific actor and an amazing dad, and The Night Man is an emotional and moving film.””
We’re a family and we’re not going to forget this.
We’re going to keep doing this and we’ll be here forever.”
‘A lot of joy’Matt said the two-part film will allow him to “look back at my life” as he “learns a little bit about what it’s like to have a son”.
“It’s really an incredible opportunity,” he told reporters.
“I’m really excited about it and I can’t wait to get started on it.”
Fincher said it was a “dream come true” for Matt to be a father.
He said the father-son dynamic was “so perfect” and that they had “a lot of fun together”.
“We’ll have to wait and see if we’re able to get Chris and Ben a baby soon, but I’m absolutely thrilled about it,” he added.
Parents hoping for a reunionThe Night Man will be released on the same day as The Night manager.
Matt Damon said he hoped the two brothers would reunite for a “moment of closure”.
