Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are expecting their first baby together
2018 is not shaping up to be the year of love. After being together for seven years, and appearing to be wholly in love for it all, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux called it quits in February. And it clearly triggered a veritable domino effect, as earlier this month Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan took to Instagram to announce their separation after nine years of marriage. Accordingly, us voyeuristic souls have anxiously been checking to see if the rest of Hollywood's golden couples are happy in their respective relationships.
Certainly, while it may seem as if love has been rendered terminal, in some regards it's very much alive and kicking. I mean, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds seem to be going strong. And in what has to be the most adorable piece of news we've heard all week - Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig have announced that they are expecting their first child together.
Actress Rachel Weisz has confirmed that she's pregnant with her and husband Daniel Craig's first child together.
The 48-year-old announced the news to the New York Times, confessing that her "glowing" complexion was down to pregnancy hormones.
"I'll be showing soon. Daniel and I are so happy. We're going to have a little human," Weisz stated. "We can't wait to meet him or her. It's all such a mystery!"
Opening up about her seven-year marriage to the James Bond actor, Weisz asserted: "It's very personal, it's very private. I don't think mine's particularly exceptional apart from that we're both in the public eye. But I never thought I would get married. It was not an ambition of mine. It was the opposite."
However, she did reveal that she absolutely "loves" being married to Craig. "I love being Mrs Craig. I'm Mrs Craig on my chequebooks and passports and things," Weisz jested. "I heard about a movie called Mrs Craig that I want to watch."
Weisz has an 11-year-old son, Henry, with acclaimed film director Darren Aronofsky, while Craig has a 25-year-old daughter, Ella, from his relationship with actress Fiona Loudon.
Back in 2012, the actress confessed that she would "never say never" to expanding her family with Craig, whom she married in 2011. "I'm pretty content. I'm not planning on having more, but never say never," she told Marie Claire. "Like any job, there are days when you're just pulling your hair out - the same as anyone who wants to be with their kid or their husband."
"Every working mother feels that, don't they? Of course, sometimes it's great to get away and feel, 'Hooray, I'm not changing nappies today'. I mean, I love my son, but it's not without conflict."
Weisz and Craig are notorious for keeping their relationship private, and have only been pictured together on a few occasions. They married in a secret ceremony in New York with only four people attending - including their two children.
Speaking to GQ magazine in 2015, Craig asserted: "We got away with it. We did it privately. And I've got a lot of people to thank for that. But that was the point."
"We did it for private reasons. Because we didn't want it f****d up, because that would be sharing a secret. And the whole point is that it was a secret."
We wish Rachel and Daniel a healthy and happy pregnancy!
