Well, Laura’s personal life is also no less than a success. She has been happily married for over a decade and is a doting mother of a child. Laura, who prefers to keep most of her personal details private, has become candid about motherhood in several interviews. So now, let’s find out how Laura Linney’s son, Bennett Armistead Schauer, is growing up.

The Only Child Of His Parents

The Ozark actress is happily married to Marc Schauer, whom she met in 2004 in Telluride, Colorado, during a film festival. For her, it was love at first sight. The couple got engaged in October 2007. The duo exchanged vows in May 2009 and has been enjoying marital bliss.

Five years after their wedding, Laura Linney’s son, Bennett Armistead Schauer, arrived on January 8, 2014. The news of their baby’s arrival was shared only a week later. The representative who confirmed the news said the new parents were thrilled.

As the only child of his parents, Bennett must be raised surrounded by immense love and care. As for his name, Bennett Armistead Schauer’s mom is a huge fan of Armistead Maupin, the author of Tales of the City, as she has starred in several TV miniseries based on the book.

After welcoming him, Laura revealed that in the first year, she realized there were muscles in her face that she had never used before. She smiled in a different way when looking at her son, resulting in her face being always sore. Bennett’s mama added that motherhood changed her on a cellular level.

His Mom Kept Her Pregnancy A Secret

While Bennett Armistead Schauer’s mother was pregnant with him, she kept the news under wraps. She wasn’t spotted in public since she attended the Women in Film’s 2013 Crystal and Lucy Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in June. At that time, she was only a few months pregnant.

Laura did not reveal the pregnancy news because she was being cautious. She was an older mother-to-be, and it had taken her a long time to have a kid. She wanted to ensure that her baby arrived and was healthy and safe.

In an interview on Live! With Kelly, the Manhattan native said that she did not hide her pregnancy intentionally. She just did not advertise it and was very quiet about it. She further added that nobody asked her about her pregnancy. No one said a thing, even when she went to the theater while eight months pregnant.

Explaining the reason behind keeping her pregnancy quiet, the actress stated that she was not hiding, but everyone made a big deal about it when she actually had the baby. Marc Schauer’s wife also admitted to having some problems when she was expecting. As a result, she did not turn up to receive her fourth Emmy for best actress in September 2013.

Currently, Laura Linney’s son is doing well. He must be having a splendid time with his parents.

His Mother Is Grateful To Have Him Later In Life

As mentioned earlier, Laura and Marc Schauer’s son arrived when the film star was 49. She has often shared that she was grateful it happened and said it was the most wonderful experience. She further added that the only downside of having a child late in her 40s was the bitter-sweet reality of chronology.

Bennett’s mom went on to explain that knowing she might not be there in his late adulthood availed her limited time to prepare him for anything that comes.

Linney further stated that she would likely not have it any other way. She also has no regrets about having a kid that late. In fact, Laura added that she was lucky to have enjoyed her life to the fullest for nearly five decades before welcoming Bennett. As a working mom, Bennett Armistead Schauer’s mama has gracefully managed her work life and motherhood. Furthermore, his grandmother has also helped his mom to manage everything.

Unfortunately, Laura is raising her only child away from the glam. She hasn’t revealed his face on her social media posts. But, from bits of what we can see Bennett has shiny brown hair and has likely inherited good looks from his parents.
