According to an exclusive reports at E! News, Carey Mulligan officially had her baby. This is the first child for Mulligan and her husband, Marcus Mumford, and they have been pros at keeping all details of her pregnancy very quiet. Her pregnancy was first reported in June of this year, but was never fully confirmed by either of the parents. Mulligan and Mumford are known to be extremely private in their personal lives but a source at E! says, "Carey has given birth to a healthy and happy baby... She is just enjoying this time with her family and close friends."
(Update: Mulligan confirmed that she and Mumford welcomed a baby girl on The Graham Norton Show.)
Ahhh! I can't wait to see how this talented child is going to turn out! Although no other details have come out regarding the birth, it seems like the actual birthday might have been a week or two ago. Given that Mulligan has been very tight lipped about her pregnancy, it would make sense that they wouldn't officially announce anything. According to Hollywood Life, Mulligan is reported to have had her child in September. When looking at photos of Mulligan at the BFI London Film Festival on October 7 to promote Suffragette with Meryl Streep, a baby bump is barely visible which leads me to believe that she might have definitely already had her baby.
Regardless of when she had her child, it seems like Mulligan and Mumford are wholeheartedly committed to their new and growing family. While promoting Suffragette, Mulligan was the November cover star for Elle UK and shared, "I've always wanted to be a mother. I love what I do, but I'm excited for this next phase of my life."
Congratulations to this talented and inspiring couple on this beautiful new time in their lives!
