Born in 2021, the celebrity son is just 2 years old. James’ birthday lies in early May, however, his exact date of birth hasn’t been disclosed yet. Moreover, Plemons is born to an American native family and belongs to a Caucasian ethnic background.

Both of James Robert Plemons’ Parents are Superstars
Talking about James’ parents, both his mom Kirsten and dad Jesse are popular faces in the media. The pair met on the set of Fargo in 2016 and started dating after a year in 2017.
This might be surprising to many, but Plemon’s old man got to be a part of the Coca-Cola commercial when he was just 3 and a half years old. Jesse later auditioned several times and landed small jobs. His hard work paid off when he finally appeared in the films Varsity Blues (1999) and All the Pretty horses (2000).
Following his first prominent role in the movie Children on their Birthdays, the actor’s breakthrough was with Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad, and Fargo.
Similarly, like his dad, James’ mom, started her career at the age of three as a child fashion model in TV commercials. Her debut role was in the short film Oedipus by Woody Allens whereas her breakthrough role was in the horror drama Interview with the Vampire with co-actors Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.
Regardless, she was more notable after her role as Mary Jane Watson in the successful superhero movie Spiderman. In addition, she is also a nominee for Academy Award, Primetime Emmy Award, and four Golden Globe Awards.
Plemon’s Mother Kirsten Dunst Reveals His Arrival
The actress first revealed her second son’s arrival, four months after his birth. She introduced him in New York Times as “an angel.” The Spider-Man star said,
“This is the newest guy, the Big Kahuna. He’s an angel, but he’s a hungry angel. And a heavy angel.”
Though the couple hadn’t officially announced getting pregnant with their second child, the mother flaunted her baby bump in a photoshoot for W Magazine directed by Sofia Coppola.
She starred in the photoshoot along with other actresses Elle Fanning and Rashida Jones at Beverly Hills which was shot by Zoe Ghertner. As the shoot’s arrangement was on the floor, Dunst said,
“Every shot was on the floor. I was like, ‘I can’t get up.”
Until the photoshoot, Kirsten’s pregnancy news was a secret. She then gave birth to her second son after a few months.
Having said that, we are yet to get a peek of James’s look. As the lovebirds even previously took time to show off their first child, maybe they will reveal their second kid’s picture soon as well.

As we mentioned earlier, Plemons is the second child of his parents. Before his birth, his mom-dad welcomed his elder brother Ennis Howard Plemons on May 3, 2018.
The duo was then thrilled to announce their first child’s arrival. Yet, he made his first glimpse in the media only after 15 months after his birth.
Having an age difference of only three years between the Plemons brothers, they are going to get best friends out of each other when they grow old. Furthermore, the siblings are growing up together in a great environment.

James Robert Plemons’ Mother Kirsten Durst Was in Rehab
Many people are aware of Kirsten going to Rehab, however, most of them misinterpreted the reality behind “why?” They were creating their own story saying she was a drug addict and an alcoholic while the fact is she was there to seek help for depression.
Absolutely! The Spider-Man star was at the Cirque Lodge Treatment Center in Utah for the treatment of her depression. After returning back from there, the actress in E! Online expressed she “was struggling” and “had the opportunity to go somewhere and take care” of herself. She further added that she “was fortunate to have the resources to do it” and her “friends and family thought it was a good idea, too.”
The mother of two entered rehab in February 2008. One of her close friends even stated to PEOPLE,
“She does drink and she does have wild nights, but that was never the root of her issues. She couldn’t control her depression.”
As of now, Dunst is “feeling stronger” and she says “Depression is pretty serious and should not be gossiped about.”
