‘Delighted’ Eddie Redmayne and wife Hannah expecting their second child

Hollywood A-lister Eddie Redmayne and his publicist wife Hannah have confirmed the exciting news that they are expecting their second child.

The couple announced the happy news to MailOnline, after Hannah was spotted out and about with a burgeoning bump.

A spokesperson for the pair said: ‘Eddie and Hannah are delighted to confirm they are expecting their second child.’

The new addition will be a welcomed younger sibling for the couple’s one-year-old daughter, Iris.

The 34-year-old mum-to-be took a night off from parenting with her famous hubby to attend the Sarabande: The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation Jewellery Series Preview event in East London.

Hannah’s choice of outfit – a simple ensemble of black jumper, skinny jeans and navy coat – framed her baby bump perfectly, and the ensemble was a noticeably different option to the usual form-fitting frocks she wears.

Eddie and Hannah first met when the actor was studying at Eton College, while Hannah was boarding at a nearby girls’ school.

Hannah became his publicist and soon after a trip to Florence, where he was filming Les Miserables, romance reportedly blossomed.

Eddie and Hannah began dating in 2012 and the couple wed at Babington House in Somerset just before Christmas 2014.

They went on to confirm they were expecting their first child in January 2016.

The first daughter, Iris Mary – with Iris meaning ‘rainbow’ in Greek, and Mary meaning ‘wished-for child’ in Hebrew – was welcomed into the world in January.

While confirming their first pregnancy back in December, the couple revealed that they had chosen not to find out the sex of their child in advance.

At the time, the excited dad-to-be said: ‘It’s our first child, so obviously there’s a mixture of emotions,’ he confessed. ‘Joy, excitement and a bit of fear. I can’t wait. I’ll be a hands-on dad.’
