Pierce Brosnan, 69, shares adorable photo as he welcomes new arrival
James Bond star Pierce Brosnan could scarcely conceal his happiness when he revealed jubilantly to the world that his son Sean and his wife Sanja have welcomed a little boy. The ecstatic grandfather, who is best known for starring in four James Bond movies, including Tomorrow Never Dies, wished baby Jaxxon heartfelt “blessings”.
“Jaxxon Elijah Brosnan, born 3:06pm 11/12/22… all good blessings to you my dearest grandson, welcome,” he captioned the cute photo.
“Congratulations my darling Sean, Sanja and Marley. Peace be with you,” he added, name-checking the pair’s seven-year-old daughter.
Besides the latest arrival, little Marley May is Sean and Sanja’s first child, whom Pierce has stated is an “utter joy” to be around.
He also has two older grandchildren – Isabella, 24, and Lucas, 17 – who were born to his late adopted daughter Charlotte.

Though they are not technically his blood relations, he loves them dearly too.
Tragically, Charlotte died of ovarian cancer, just as his former wife Cassandra Harris did, despite there being no genetic link between the two – and heartbroken Pierce watched his beloved wife go through eight rounds of gruelling chemotherapy.
However, he feels fortunate to have been left with memories of the two important women in his life via their surviving offspring, and has always been open about how much he appreciates the links with the youngsters.
“It’s just such a joy to be a grandparent … there is just something intoxicating about it and beautiful,” he exclaimed on the Live With Kelly and Ryan Show.
“There is something very special about it. I think it’s the timing of your life.
“Your passage in life is going through and you’ve brought up a son or daughter and now you have a [grandchild], and you’re looking at the clock.”
However, the Die Another Day star – who is now married to Keely Shaye Smith – is adamant that he has plenty of life left to experience, and isn’t seeing later life as the twilight years.
“There’s still a lot of life in the old man and I’ll keep going till I can go no more. Life is so precious,” he told The Herald back in 2015.
“It can be snatched away without any prior warning … so why waste it? That’s why I enjoy my wonderful, beautiful family, my children and my grandchildren.”
He’s been open about the fact that Marley “melts my heart” – and it’s likely that little Jaxxon will inspire him to feel the same way.
Besides biological son Sean and adopted son Christopher – who were siblings to his late adopted daughter Charlotte – Pierce also has other kids.
His youngest are two biological children from his marriage to current love Keely, named Dylan and Paris, who are both now in their 20s.
The pair recently appeared in a GQ interview with their famous father, admitting they had no idea quite how successful he was when they were growing up.
“I always [just] thought he had a lot of friends!” Dylan exclaimed, explaining why he never clocked that his dad was a celebrity even though fans would regularly come up to him to chat in the street.
Neither of them have opted to follow in their father’s footsteps as an actor – and Pierce has even advised them against it, declaring the profession “f***ing hard work”.
“It’s a cross to bear. You’re constructing and destroying yourself,” he explained.
