Rocco, and Rafa Cannavale, who are the sons of Bobby Cannavale and Rose Byrne, have been drawing interest since their birth. As the children of high-profile actors, there’s a natural curiosity about their lives. So, let’s explore the lives of Rocco and Rafa, getting to know them beyond just their famous last name.

A Hollywood Love Story


First things first, let’s briefly delve into the love story of their parents.

Bobby Cannavale is well-known for his roles in ‘Boardwalk Empire’ and ‘Mr. Robot,’ while Rose Byrne, the Australian actress, made a name for herself with roles in ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘X-Men: First Class.’ Their love story began on the set of ‘Annie’ in 2013, and it has been a heartwarming tale of a shared passion for the arts.

Byrne and Cannavale have worked together multiple times throughout their relationship, including in 2014’s ‘Adult Beginners,’ and 2015’s ‘Spy.’ The couple has considered marriage but put it on hold due to their growing family and other life circumstances.

The Arrival of Rocco and Rafa


In February 2016, this couple’s joy was multiplied with the arrival of their first child, a boy named Rocco Cannavale. Fast forward to November 2017, and the family welcomed another bundle of joy, Rafa Cannavale. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Bobby revealed the story behind the boys’ names:

“I hadn’t given one of my children a Latin name yet, so I wanted to honor my mom’s side of the family. And, you know, Rafael Nadal had such a great year, and we were constantly keeping up with him and watching all his matches, so we were like, ‘How about Rafa? That goes well with Rocco.’ And that was it.”

As the children of actors, Rocco and Rafa have had their fair share of public attention. Still, their parents have been maintaining a balance between public and private life. While the world gets occasional glimpses of the boys through social media posts, they are primarily raised away from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.

Rocco often makes appearances in Rose and Bobby‘s Instagram feeds, where we can see him exploring various interests. On the other hand, Rafa, the younger of the two, brings a refreshing energy to the family, evident from his gleeful photos.

Will Rose and Bobby Get Married?


As for recent news, Rocco and Rafa’s parents have no plans of tying the knot yet due to scheduling issues. However, Rose told People that it’s possible in the near future:

“Definitely something that we will do. We’ll get around to it.”

The couple’s most recent project was ‘Inappropriate Behavior.‘ Written by Tony Spiridakis and directed by Tony Goldwyn, the comedy-drama film is expected to air on October 20, 2023.
