Well, this is strange… Charlie Heaton is allegedly the father of a three-year-old boy according to a new report from The Sun. The 23-year-old Stranger Things star is said to have fathered a son with his ex-girlfriend, Akiko Matsuura. Fans of the actor had no idea that he was a parent, so this news has come as a shock to the entire fan-base.
The little boy — named Archie — was reportedly born in May 2014 when Charlie and Akiko were still in a relationship. The exes met when they were teenagers and fell in love with each other during the time they played in the same band, Comanechi. "Charlie became a dad when he was just 20. He met Akiko when he was just a teen and fell head over heels in love,” the source claims. "They’re no longer together but they have an amicable relationship for the boy’s sake."
This news of the star having a secret child comes right after he surprisingly missed the Season 2 premiere party for Stranger Things. According to the Daily Mail, the star was busted for carrying cocaine at an LA airport. He was denied access into the country because of he drugs and missed the event.
"He was not arrested. He was held at the airport for a while and then put back on a plane to London that night," the source explained. "If you are a foreign national and it is a large amount of drugs you may be charged. But if it is personal use, the consequences are that you will not be allowed in to the country. US law is very strict on this." We hope Charlie is able to get his drug issues under control and comes clean about being a parent.
