The Untold Truth of Kit Bernard Foster, Jodie Foster’s Youngest Son

Kit Bernard Foster is a popular star kid who hit the media right after his birth due to his mother’s immense popularity. His doting mother is non-other than Jodie Foster, the two times Academy Award-winning actress. Jodie has won many prestigious accolades for her roles in several big hit movies and TV shows.

In spite of her tremendous fame, Jodie keeps her personal life, including her relationships private which is the reason people are still curious about Kit’s father’s identity. Apparently, Foster was in a relationship with film producer Cydney Bernard at the time of Kit’s birth. But, is he the father of Kit Bernard Foster?

Well, let us try to find it out here. Let’s also know several unexplored facts about Jodie Foster’s younger son, including his age, education, and more!

Kit Bernard Foster Was Reportedly Conceived Via an Artificial Insemination

Although Jodie never talked about how she conceived her younger son, Kit, many sources reported the actress used artificial insemination for that. Kit was born on 29th September 2001, at an LA hospital. He weighed 6lbs 3oz at birth.

Foster’s pregnancy news first came out in April 2001 when she revealed it to columnist Liz Smith. In the interview, the  two-time Oscar winner said,

“My sisters and I are all Scorpios, so we have a soft spot for the birth date.”

Jodie added,

“I enjoyed being pregnant with Charlie and I look forward to this experience again. I am into all the health foods, yoga, and the rest of it.”

Jodie was due in November but the delivery came about a month earlier. Her publicist Pat Kingsley confirmed the news saying,

“there is no reason to raise any red flags–everything was normal. Both [Foster and child] are at home and fine.”

Who is Jodie Foster’s son Kit Bernard Foster’s Father?

Ever since Foster became a single mother of two children, there is only one question, who is her sons’ father? At the time of the birth of her both children, the actress was in a long-time relationship with her partner Cydney Bernard. But, neither Jodie nor her ex-bae Cydney ever disclosed about the babies’ father.

Back in April 2003, when New York Post gossip columnist Liz Smith asked Jodie whether “her donor” was the same man as her first child, Charles’, the notoriously private entertainment star replied,

“I’m not going to answer that.”

In the meantime, Foster opened up about her plan to raise her kids as a single mother. She told Smith,

“Just like I was raised myself.”

Besides, years ago, the late Hollywood producer Randy Stone was rumored to be the boys’ biological father. But, it later turned to be a hoax. So, the true identity of their biological father still remains quite mysterious.
