Celebrity culture today is one of the defining aspects of this current generation. People have become obsessed with celebrities’ personal lives. They constantly want to know if celebrities are any different than regular people. Most celebrities, on the other hand, are not very keen on the idea of having their personal lives under the scrutiny of so many people.
One such celebrity is the Academy Award winner Christian Bale who along with his beautiful wife Sibi Blažić are notoriously private about their personal lives. So, it comes as no surprise that they would be very secretive about their children too. They have 2 children from their marriage of 19 years. Let us learn a bit about his firstborn: Emmeline Bale.
Christian has Kept Emmeline Away from the Media
What Christian is really good at except his squeaky voice in Batman is his ability to keep his private life away from the columns. Both Christian and his wife Sibi rarely discuss their private life with the media. That’s probably the reason the world was unknown about the name of their firstborn for a long time. Emmeline Bale was born on March 27, 2005. Her mother Sibi who was a former model and PA to Winona Ryder got pregnant with little Emmeline after five years of marriage.
There is hardly any information regarding her educational background. Since she recently turned 18 years old, she might have already finished her high school.
Emmeline also has a younger brother Joseph who was born in 2014. Both siblings are kept very much away from the media spotlight. The only time we get to see them or any of their new photos is when they step out of their house for walks, outings, or Halloween parties.
Christian was Amazed by Emmeline’s Daredevil Antics
Well, he might be the ‘Batman’ of Dark Knight trilogy but it’s Emmeline who seemed to have all the necessary skills to be a superhero. Talking to a 2009 interview with ‘The Insider,‘ Christian shared his experience with his daughter on the sets. During shooting of ‘Terminator Salvation,’ his then 4 year old daughter was quite thrilled intricate costumes and out of the box make-ups. She is quite the daredevil he said thoroughly enjoying his kid’s antics on the set.
‘She’s at that age where she’s not afraid of anything,’ he said with a grin on his face.
When she was seven, she was pictured with her dad working her way with climbing tricks in Boston. Christian who helped Emmeline climb into the frame was seen motivating his daughter. And she finally maintained a firm balance in the frame. She then hit the streets with her parents Sibi and Christian riding her scooter.
Talk about real hero!
Emmeline just like her mother Sibi seems to have a daredevil attitude that even her father appreciates. Bale being a fitness buff who is known for being able to easily gain or shed weight for his movie roles always encourages his children to take part in active sports.
Christian has always been Vocal about his Love for Emmeline and Family
Being one of the biggest star of pop culture, it can be a little daunting for personal relationships. But Christian always tries to be the part of his daughter’s life. He has always emphasized the role of his family in his life. In an interview with GQ Australia he revealed how important his family is for him.
‘I get no greater joy than when I’m looking at my daughter and her friends when they’re laughing their asses off. Movies are great but when I look back, it’s the time with my family I’m going to remember. That’s the source of character,’ he said.
Famous Parents: Christian Bale and Sibi Blažić
Emmeline Bale’s father Christian Bale is one of the most talented and highly successful actors of this generation. But before meeting her mother, Christian did not even like the idea of union through marriage. Having exposed to one failed marriage after another in his own family, Christian never understood the need for marriage until he met Sibi Blažić. They eloped to Las Vegas to get married by an Elvis Presley look alike.
Emmeline’s father, Christian Bale is a wales born actor who has worked on numerous critically and commercially successful movies. He started his career at the age of 12 doing different lead and supporting roles including the fifth adaptation of Little Women. He gained worldwide recognition for portraying the serial killer Patrick Bateman in American Pshyco (2000). Bale is also known for his role in ‘The Machinist’ for which he lost 63 pounds. He became a household name after donning the mask of the cape crusader Batman in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Trilogy’. The movie was a critical and commercial success.
Christian Bale has been nominated and won numerous awards. He won an academy award for best supporting actor in The Fighter. Likewise, he was nominated for an academy award for best actor for his recent movie Vice. Apart from that, he also won a Golden Globe for the same role. As of 2019, his net worth is estimated to be 80 million US dollars.
Emmeline’s mother, Sibi Blažić is a Serbian-American model, actress, make-up artist, and a stuntwoman. She previously used to work as a personal assistant of actress Winona Ryder through whom she met her future husband Christian.
Her Father Never Wanted To Be Married Until he met Sibi Blazic
We were probably never been discussing here Emmeline if Sibi Blažić hadn’t bumped into Christian’s life. The grown-up in a family where the divorce was taken lightly, the actor had never made thoughts on getting hitched. But, when he met Sibi Blažić, his perception changed. In an interview with Sydney Morning Herald, Christian shared how his thoughts changed after meeting Sibi as:
“ Everyone was divorced in my family so I didn’t have very healthy ideas about marriage. Then I met Sibi and suddenly it seemed a fantastic idea.”
Tying the knot with the actress was the best decision made by Christian Bale in life till date. He never fails to gush about his beautiful wife whenever he gets a chance. When he won the Critics Choice Award for the movie The Fighter, he thanked his wife for everything. His words were like this:
“ I truly believe you can’t celebrate something like this without having your partner with you. She’s had to be married to so many different characters over our marriage. I know that it would be impossible to do it without her. She’s such a good, strong woman. I owe everything to her.”
Emmeline made a brief cameo in Thor: Love and Thunder
While not her first time, Emmeline recently appeared in one of his father’s movies called ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’. She was noticed by eagle eyed fans as one of the vendors in the ice cream parlor Infinity Conez that is featured in the movie. This should not be that surprising since the whole movie had cameos from the children of other actors and director working on the movie.
What we know about Emmeline from her father
Christian Bale and his wife Sibi Blažić have one of the most successful marriages in Hollywood. This year they have already celebrated their 19th anniversary. One of the top reasons why their marriage might have worked could be their intense desire to keep their private life away from the spectators. They did have their fair share of problems including a rocky relationship with Christian’s mother.
According to his biography published by his ex-assistant, Christian also used to have a tumultuous relationship with his late father. Since his father was not able to be there for him, he makes sure that none of his children will feel the same issues he felt with his father.
Christian always encourages his children to visit him during his shoots. Since he started his career as an actor at a very young age, he firmly believes that children are very much likely to learn from the environment of the sets. He revealed that his daughter Emmeline learned to dress up from her visits to the movie sets. She would dress up as Darth Vader or Yoda. He also revealed that she never got scared from the contemporary scary stuff that kids get scared of like costumes and realistic make-up transformations.
When he won the Golden Globe for best actor for the movie ‘Vice’, he thanked his lovely wife and children. In the same speech, he referred to his children as Banana and Buritto. He probably said so as a dig to Hollywood couples who tend to give their children really weird names.
Emmeline is growing up in a loving home away from the crazy scrutiny of people who are obsessed with celebrity culture. And her parents are making sure that she will be able to live and grow up as a normal kid.
