Kit Bernard Foster is the son of an actress Jodie Foster. His mother is one of the prominent entertainment personalities, who has won a number of prestigious accolades including two Academy Awards, three British Academy Film Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards.
While Kit’s mother has been a regular face in the media, many people are yet to know who is Kit Bernard Foster’s father? Foster was reportedly conceived via artificial insemination like his older brother.
Let’s take a closer look at things you didn’t know about Jodie Foster’s younger son Kit!
How Kit Bernard Foster Was Born?
There are rumors that Foster was born through artificial insemination. He was born on 29th Sept 2001, at an LA hospital. Sources suggest that the then-baby-boy weighed 6lbs 3oz at birth.
Jodie announced the pregnancy in April 2001. At the time, the award-winning actress told it to columnist Liz Smith,
“My sisters and I are all Scorpios, so we have a soft spot for the birth date. 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.”
The ‘Taxi Driver‘s star was expecting her baby in November but it came nearly a month earlier. Following the successful delivery of the baby, a publicist Pat Kingsley for the actress said,
“there is no reason to raise any red flags–everything was normal. Both [Foster and child] are at home and fine.”
Kit Foster has an Older Sibling
He grew up along with his older brother, Charles Bernard Foster. He was born via artificial insemination at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on 20th July 1998, in Los Angeles.
Online tabloids say, for her first pregnancy, Jodie went to a Los Angeles clinic to pick the sperm of a dark-haired, 6-foot, Ph.D. scientist with a 160 IQ.
Talking about motherhood, the actress once said it is “more artistic than anything I’ve ever done.”
Who is Kit Bernard Foster’s Father?
Ever since it’s been reported that Kit was born via artificial insemination, everyone wonders to know who is his biological father. But, neither Kit nor his mom Jodie has revealed the name of his dad.

“I’m not going to answer that.”
