Then when she ended up pregnant , Benicio said he wouldn’t marry her and didn’t want a relationship – but he’d support the baby.”

Stewart said that having a child changed her life, and the way she approached her career. “I honestly never, ever thought that I could love anything as much as I love her,” she told HELLO. “I had her at the right time. I got all the partying out of my system and I just wanted to be with her. I’ve been a stay at home mother since she was born and I’ve loved every second.”
Del Toro said that having a child has forced him to become more patient. “I’ve learned it’s important to compromise,” and to be “even-keeled” when she is “throwing a tantrum,” he said. Del Toro has also maintained a close relationship with Stewart’s father, pop legend Rod Stewart. “Who would have thought it?,” he jokingly said. “I told a friend from school and he goes, ‘Bro, if I told you, ‘I see in your future that you’ll go to Disneyland with Rod Stewart,’ you would have said, ‘No way.'”
