According to Sonni Pacheco’s bio on the Monster Energy Drink website, the 22-year-old model from B.C. is an Aries, likes to catch frogs, and prefers a good pile of poutine to a salad. She’s also the reported mother of Jeremy Renner’s baby.
The 42-year-old star of “The Hurt Locker,” “The Avengers,” and “The Bourne Legacy” revealed earlier this month that an ex-girlfriend was pregnant with his first child and was currently living with him and his roommate in Los Angeles. This week, The National Enquirer revealed the Pitt Meadows native as the mother-to-be. The two reportedly met on the set of 2011’s “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” in Vancouver. It was the stand-in role that would change Pacheco’s life.

In addition to being a model for Monster Energy, Pacheco has done a few acting roles on the side - like playing “Sonni” in “The Wingman” and “Splendid Wet T-Shirt Girl” in the 2009 straight-to-video “American Pie Presents: The Book of Love,” starring Bug Hall (yes, Alfalfa all grown up!). In fact, you can maybe see Pacheco for a split second in the movie’s trailer below (far right at 1:33).
Pacheco’s bio says she spent four months selling timeshares in Mexico at the age of 19, and her first job was a hairstylist.
She also uses her profile to send a shout out to her hometown, Pitt Meadows, located in the Lower Fraser Valley. With a population of just over 18,200, Pitt Meadows is a scenic town surrounded by the Pitt River, the Alouette River, Pitt Lake, and the Thompson Mountain Range. It’s nestled in about an hour outside of downtown Vancouver, in between the suburb of Coquitlam and Mission, B.C., hometown of Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen.
“I love… that I grew up where I did. I feel that it kept me down to earth to this day and I will never lose that,” Pacheco, a self-confessed tomboy, wrote.
Pitt Meadows seems to be a far stretch from the life of luxury in Los Angeles, but we’re sure that Pacheco is making the change just fine. Apparently, so is Renner.
“Jeremy is delighted he’s going to become a dad,” a source told The Enquirer. “He realizes it’s unconventional to have his baby mama, an ex-girlfriend, living with him and his roommate, but he just doesn’t care.”
And it seems that Pacheco shares that attitude.
“I believe… that life is so short, so do what makes you happy. Only keep solid people in your life and let the others go!” she wrote on the website, which also states that she wishes to work with Monster for years to come. But it seems like Pacheco will have a new priority coming very soon.
