Jesse Eisenberg

Jesse Eisenberg is going to become a dad.

The 33-year-old actor and his long term girlfriend Anna Strout are expecting their first child together, E! News reports.

The 'Café Society' actor has remained private about his relationship with Anna - which has spanned over 14 years - but has admitted previously that he loves surrounding himself with people who "want to help other people".

He said previously: "I find people who want to help other people to be the most interesting. I come from a family of teachers, and my friends are teachers, often times in very difficult school situations. My job is so selfish and focused on my own vanity that I like to surround myself with people who are actually helping people throughout their day."

'The Social Network' star originally dated Anna from 2002 to 2012 before they decided to take a break for a period whilst Jesse focused on his career. Then, before heading to London's West End to perform in 'The Spoils' earlier this year, the star spent four months volunteering for a domestic violence shelter in Bloomington, Indiana. Alongside the University of Indiana, Jesse raised $500,000 for the shelter - enough to pay off the mortgage for the property.

It was whilst volunteering that Jesse was put back in touch with Anna, as her mother is the shelter's executive director.

Speaking about his work with the shelter, the 'Now You See Me' actor has remained tight lipped.

He said previously: "I was there for, like, personal reasons. For reasons I don't want to bring up in an interview."
