Diane Kruger is adding children’s book author to her resume!
The 46-year-old German actress authored A Name from the Sky, “an enchanting story about how learning the meaning of her name changed her life—and how our names can help us find our own special powers.”

Diane Kruger Reveals Daughter’s Name
Diane Kruger gave birth to her first child with Norman Reedus in November 2018, but it wasn’t until three years later that the name of their daughter was revealed.
“I had her late in life at 42, and [Norman] had a child when he was much younger,” she said. “’Nova’ in Latin means new beginning, and a nova star keeps changing and is reborn. And we love Tennessee and the Smoky Mountains; we do motorcycle trips there.”
She explained that she wanted to give her daughter a name that would empower her just like how her name, Diane, changed how she sees herself.
As a child, The 355 actress was teased for her name, Diane, which was not a common name in Germany. “I remember coming home crying because kids were making fun of my name.”
But after her mother read her a book about the Roman goddess Diana, whom she was named after, she said, “it truly changed my life and how I see myself today.”
