Neve Campbell Reveals Why She and JJ Feild Told Their Son about His Adoption from the Start
Neve Campbell, an actress who has appeared on People magazine’s list of “50 Most Beautiful People” twice, is the mother of two adorable children.
She had her first child, son Caspian Feild, with her longtime partner [and alleged husband], actor JJ Feild, in August 2012.
Six years later, in 2018, the couple welcomed their second son Raynor via adoption.
The Scream star took to Instagram at that time to share the special news, as she posted a sweet photo of her family pushing a stroller while out for a walk.
“Sheer joy!!!!….So it’s been a secret up until now as JJ and I wanted to wait until it was official but we adopted a beautiful baby boy 5 months ago,” she wrote in her June 2018 post.

She continued to express that the couple’s first child. Caspian. was over the moon and asked them every all the time if he could hold the little one.
“It’s the most incredible thing we’ve experienced. We’re so grateful for this beautiful light coming into our lives and we think of and are grateful to his birth family every day for such an incredible gift,” her caption further read.
Neve Campbell Told Son about His Adoption
During a recent interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show in January 2022, Campbell admitted that she and her alleged husband had talked with their baby about his adoption from the beginning.
She shared that while explaining why she told Raynor she and Feild welcomed him via adoption.
“I read a lot about it. I think back in the day we used to think ‘Keep it from them and throw it at them when they’re 21 so their entire reality falls apart,’ which makes so much sense,” she stated.
But she was personally brought up in an environment where she was taught to reveal to people their reality and who they are.
Because of her openness with her adopted son, he now knows about his birth mother and origin.
The actress even asked Raynor’s birth mother for a picture of herself and a letter so that her son would know where he came from.
“She actually made an entire album for him of photos of herself and things about her life and things that she likes,” Campbell revealed during the same conversation.
Neve Campbell Has Not Announced JJ Feild as Husband
Even though Campbell and her partner Feild have been together for more than a decade, they have not married each other or at least have not announced it publicly.
Due to that, the diva is yet to pronounce her longtime spouse as her husband to date.
Besides, Campbell was previously married to her former husband Jeff Colt from 1995 to 1998.
She later started a relationship with John Light, whom she met while filming Investigating Sex.
The two became engaged in December 2005 and subsequently walked down the aisle in Malibu, California, on May 5, 2007.
However, the marriage could not last forever, as she filed for divorce from Light on June 30, 2010, in Los Angeles.
