Edward Norton is about to welcome a Canadian baby into his home -- well, 50 percent Canadian, anyway.

The "Moonrise Kingdom" star's Canuck fiancée, Shauna Robertson, is set to give birth to their first child "any day now," Us Weekly reports.

The mom-to-be is a Toronto-born film producer in her late 30s who often works with comedy giant Judd Apatow (from "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" to "Pineapple Express").
According to a 2008 feature in Esquire, "Pineapple Express" director David Gordon Green nicknamed Robertson "The Velvet Hammer" because "she rarely demands anything from the cast or crew -- they just like to agree with her."

Robertson grew up on a farm outside Toronto where her father taught hang-gliding and her mom taught yoga -- and also took young Shauna out of school every Tuesday for matinees at the cinema. "My mother called me the benevolent dictator because I liked things done in an efficient way," Robertson told the L.A. Times in 2007.

A high school dropout at 16, she reportedly moved from Toronto to Hollywood to work as a director's assistant. She met Apatow around the time of "Anchorman" in 2004.

"Our movies are usually about dirty guys, and I think you get away with more dirtiness when you have a female side balancing it," Robertson told Esquire, before copping to the truth. "Okay, it's Judd who says, 'Let's make sure our female characters are well nourished.' I'm the one saying, 'Hey, let's put some porn stars in there, too.'"

Robertson and Norton started dating in 2008 following the 43-year-old actor's more high-profile relationships with troubled singer Courtney Love and actress Salma Hayek. According to the New York Post, the couple got engaged in India in February 2011.

"Wow, it's about time," Courtney Love said at the time. "He's 41, they've been together for six years. He needs to have babies. I wonder what kind of ring he got her? He bought me a ruby."

Norton and Robertson also regularly work together, having cofounded CrowdRise, a fundraising website that crowdsources to raise money for charity.

Sounds like a match made in heaven!
