Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig confirm birth of their first child together

Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig have confirmed that they've welcomed their first child together, after being spotted out with their new bundle of joy.

The pair, who are notoriously private about their personal life, confirmed the happy news as they were seen walking around in New York with their new baby.

It’s unclear when the two welcomed their first child together, but reports that Rachel had given birth started to emerge beginning of September. The Daily Mail reported at the time that they had shared the news with close friends and told them they were ‘very happy’, and that they’ve had a baby girl.

The two announced they were expecting a baby together back in April, in an interview with the New York Times. Rachel said at the time: ‘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.’

While this is their first child together, Rachel is already mum to 11-year-old son Henry with Hollywood director Darren Aronofsky, while Daniel shares 26-year-old daughter Ella with ex-wife Fiona Loudon.

They started dating in 2010 and tied the knot in June 2011, after only six months together. While they’re both very famous faces, Rachel, 48, and Daniel, 50, like to keep their personal life away from the public eye.

Speaking to ES Magazine, the mum-of-two said about her relationship to Daniel: ‘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.

Gushing about the 007 star, she also said that it was him who made her want to get married, despite having been previously engaged.

‘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.

Speaking about their need for privacy, Rachel also told MORE magazine in 2015: ‘He’s just too famous. It would be a betrayal. You have to protect your marriage.

‘When you’re young, you tell your girlfriends everything. One of the great pleasures of not being an adolescent is that you don’t have to share everything. When you’re married, that door closes. The audience goes, and you’re in your own life.’
