Diane Kruger Reveals The Name Of Her And Norman Reedus’ Daughter
After three years, Diane Kruger has finally revealed the name of her and Norman Reedus’ daughter!
In a new interview with People, the 45-year-old actress divulged the secret that both she and Norman have carefully guarded, sharing that their daughter’s name is ‘Nova Tennessee.’
Diane also opened up on the meaning behind their little one’s name, saying:
“I had her late in life at 42, and [Norman] had a child when he was much younger.
’Nova’ in Latin means new beginning, and a nova star keeps changing and is reborn. And we love Tennessee and the Smoky Mountains; we do motorcycle trips there.”
Diane shared that her daughter has helped her see life in a whole new light:
“So many things at my age, you’ve done a thousand times, but just seeing it through her eyes again.
Whether it’s having ice cream for the first time or seeing snow for the first time there’s just something so refreshing and simple about that life as mother and daughter that I’ve just found magnificent.”
And she revealed too that motherhood actually came as a surprise for her:
“[Nova] was a surprise. I thought it wasn’t going to happen, and she came into my life when I was ready. I’m grateful that happened for me and our family. She’s changed my world and the way I look at everything.”
In Diane’s new children’s book, A Name From The Sky, she shares how the meaning of her own name, an uncommon moniker in Germany, inspired her love of animals and inspired her to explore other passions as she grew up. The book’s description reads:
“This warm and relatable autobiographical story comes full circle when Diane explains how she chose her own daughter’s name, and invites readers to learn the meaning behind their own name and discover their own special powers.
Illustrated in a classic storybook style by fine artist Christa Unzner, this book is sure to instill wonder as it inspires children to follow their dreams and passions.”
