Henry Cavill has announced that he is expecting his first child with girlfriend Natalie Viscuso.

Taking to Instagram to celebrate his first Father’s Day as a father-to-be, Henry shared a selfie from his baby’s nursery alongside the caption. “Happy Father’s Day ye dads out there. Turns out I shall be joining your hallowed ranks soon. Any tips??”

The 41-year-old’s post comes two months after he first let slip that he and Natalie were expecting their first child. Speaking to Access Hollywood, the Superman star shared that his parents inspired him to become a father, adding that “Natalie and I are both very excited” for their next chapter as parents.

Prior to confirming the exciting news, Henry made a rare handful of comments about fatherhood, most recently revealing his outlook on life with children to Men’s Health in 2017. 

“If I ever have kids one day, I want to be the dad who’s running around after them. If I do have kids… I want to be a fit and healthy dad, not hobbling around like, ‘Ok, I’m just going to catch a breather.'”

As the couple prepare to welcome their first child into the world, we look back on their romance. 

Who is Henry Cavill dating?

Henry Cavill is currently in a relationship with TV executive Natalie Viscuso. 

Rumours of the couple’s romance first began to surface in early April 2021 after the pair were snapped taking a stroll in London. A few days later, Henry and Natalie confirmed their relationship on Instagramwith the duo both sharing an adorable snap of themselves playing a game of chess. 

“This is me looking quietly confident shortly before my beautiful and brilliant love Natalie destroys me at chess,” Henry captioned the post, with Natalie writing, “Just teaching my dear Henry how to play some chess..or..maybe he let me win?”

Although the exact timeline of the couple’s first meeting is unknown, fans believe that Natalie and Henry may have crossed paths as early as 2013 during Natalie’s time at Legendary Entertainment – the Hollywood production company behind Henry’s breakout film Man of Steel.

The couple made their red carpet debut in October 2022 at the New York premiere of Henry’s Enola Holmes 2. Two months later, Henry and Natalie announced that they would be collaborating on their first film project together. 

In April 2024, Henry confirmed the couple was expecting their first child together at the New York premiere of The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. 

When asked whether his co-star Henry Golding inspired him to become a father, the 40-year-old responded, “He didn’t inspire me, my parents did. I’m very excited about it. Natalie and I are both very excited about it.” 

News of the couple’s pregnancy follows a brief period of fan speculation after Natalie seemingly debuted her baby bump out and about with Henry on the night prior to the premiere.

Lucy Cork (2017-2018)

Prior to his relationship with Natalie Viscuso, Henry Cavill was in a one-year relationship with stuntwoman Lucy Cork.

The former couple first met in early 2017 on the set of Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Shortly before the film’s theatrical release, Henry took to Instagram to praise his then-girlfriend’s exceptional stunt performance alongside a video of her on-set.

“The video above is what positive motion, determination, bravery, strong will, dedication, and self-respect looks like. This is my Lucy. She is one of the best stuntwomen in the world. She has defined herself. She continues to define herself. She grows, every day. She is Lucy Cork because she says so,” he wrote. 

Throughout their relationship, Henry and Lucy kept their romance largely out of the spotlight, with the duo making only a handful of public appearances.

Tara King (2015-2016)

In 2015, Henry Cavill was romantically linked to college student Tara King. 

The duo made their debut at the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscars red carpet, with the then-33-year-old garnering media attention due to his 14-year age gap with the 19-year-old student. 

“People say, ‘Age is just a number.’ A lot of the time, it’s not just a number. It’s actually a real and true sign of someone’s maturity, but in this case, she’s fantastic,” Cavill said at the time. 

The couple’s relationship was shortlived, with a source telling The Sun that Henry and Tara had parted ways in May 2016. 

“Henry said the two of them could remain friends and he even invited her to his recent birthday party, which she went to, but the relationship is over,” the source told the publication.

Gina Carano (2012-2014)

Before launching to stardom in Man of Steel, Henry Cavill was in a relationship with Mandalorian star Gina Carano. 

According to E!, Henry and Gia reportedly got together in September 2012, with the couple dating for eight months before calling it quits. A few months after their split, the couple appeared to have rekindled their romance as they were spotted on a romantic dinner date in Rome shortly after the release of Henry’s film The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Following their romantic dinner, the couple restarted their romance, with the pair adopting a dog together. Despite their renewed romance, Henry and Gina parted ways just over one year later.
