Keanu Reeves decided to adopt after losing baby with ex-girlfriend rumor debunked

Keanu Reeves has been sparking rumors that he’s ready to become a dad for decades now.

In 1999, his then-girlfriend, Jennifer Syme, gave birth to their stillborn baby. And this tragic event allegedly left Keanu Reeves devastated.

Keanu Reeves had a change of heart about becoming a dad

For the longest time, the actor refused to father a child because of the traumatic incident. But last year, OK! magazine claimed that the actor had a sudden change of heart.

“It took him two decades to realize that he still has a lot of love to give,” the source said.

Reeves, allegedly, consulted with his friend, Sandra Bullock, about adoption. And she was a huge help to the actor.

“Keanu has so much support if he decides to go through with it. He’s so patient, kind, and gentle, and he’d make an incredible father,” the source said.

Rumors debunked

However, Gossip Cop quickly debunked the tabloid’s claims by saying that they are untrue. Reeves didn’t adopt a baby last year. And it seems he doesn’t have any plans to become a father.

During an interview with Esquire, Reeves himself said that he’s already old to become a dad.

“I’m too… it’s too late. It’s over. I’m 52. I’m not going to have any kids,” he said.

By the looks of it, the tabloid tried exploiting a miserable incident that happened in Reeves’s life to create dubious claims about him. To revisit the demise of his stillborn baby seems rude.

Keanu, Alexandra engaged, tying the knot

Rumors about Keanu Reeves adopting or wanting to become a dad have persisted all these years. Life & Style previously claimed that Reeves and his girlfriend, Alexandra Grant, are adopting a baby.

Weeks later, Star also claimed that the couple is planning to tie the knot before adopting a child. However, none of these claims are true.

National Enquirer also published a similar story about Reeves and Grant last year.

“Keanu’s never met anyone quite like her. They share the same artistic visions and spend hours talking about everything from art and philosophy to religion. He adores Alexandra and is finally thinking about marriage,” the source said.

Woman’s Day repeated the tiresome storyline by saying that there are wedding bells for the couple. The tabloid claimed that the actor proposed to Grant in October 2019.

Back then, the tabloid also claimed that the couple is already planning their wedding. However, no gathering has taken place today. This proves that the rumors surrounding Keanu Reeves are untrue.
