Rachel Weisz announces she’s expecting a baby with Daniel Craig at 48

Rachel Weisz and husband Daniel Craig are expecting their first child together.

The Mummy star revealed the lovely news to American newspaper The New York Times, saying that that they’re both very ‘happy’ that they will be welcoming a baby together.

Despite her statement, it’s not clear how far along the actress is in her pregnancy, or when she is due to welcome their first child.

‘I’ll be showing soon. Daniel and I are so happy. We’re going to have a little human. We can’t wait to meet him or her. It’s all such a mystery’, she said.

This will be Rachel and Daniel’s first child together, but they both already have children from previous relationships.

Rachel is a mum to 11-year-old Henry, who she welcomed with Hollywood director Darren Aronofsky while the pair dated between 2001 and 2010.

Daniel is also already a dad to 25-year-old daughter called Ella, from his marriage to actress Fiona Loudon.

The lovely announcement comes only a few weeks after the pair made a public appearance together at the Night Of Opportunity Gala in New York, where Rachel’s pregnancy went unnoticed as she wore a loose-fitting red dress.

The couple, who tied the knot in June 2011 after only a six months of dating, like to keep their personal life away from the public eye.

‘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’, Rachael has said in the past.

She’s also admitted that she never actually thought she would get married, even though she was previously engaged to Darren Aronofsky.

‘But I never thought I would get married. It was not an ambition of mine. It was the opposite.’

To make their story even more romantic, Rachel has also previously said that she did not believe in romance until she fell in love with the 007 star.

‘I couldn’t relate to romantic comedies – marriage seems to be the whole point of them. Then it just happened, happily, at a more mature moment’, she said.

Congratulations to the lovely couple!
