Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are expecting their first child together

Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig

English actor Daniel Craig and wife, fellow actor, Rachel Weisz are expecting their first baby together.

“A little human”

Rachel, who is 48, spoke to the New York Times about her pregnancy, confirming that the couple were over the moon.

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

Rachel and 50-year-old James Bond star Daniel married in 2011. She is already mum to 11-year-old Henry (with former partner, director Darren Aronofsky). Daniel has a 25-year-old daughter, Ella (with former wife, actor Fiona Loudon).

“Very unimpressed”

While Rachel’s accrued a legion of fans through her work on films like The Mummy, The Constant Gardener and The Deep Blue Sea, she says that closer to home, things are a little less adoring.

“[Henry’s] generally very unimpressed with my work,” Rachel told website Female First back in 2013. “He enacts his own stories in his bedroom with Lego and toys. He has a rich fantasy life but isn’t very interested in what I do.”

“Being a mother is the thing that matters most to me. It’s incredible watching my son grow up, discovering the world and testing his boundaries. Being a mother is the greatest joy of my life.”

“I’m very happy being married”

Daniel and Rachel are notoriously private about their relationship, but she conceded that marriage suited her very well.

“I’m very happy being married, very, very happy.”

She admitted that they weren’t keen to start promoting a Dan-chel “couple brand” any time soon.

“I really take my hat off to [famous couples who promote themselves]. But Daniel and I are really similar. We just literally don’t know how to do that. We’re just really crap at talking about our private lives.”

This is the latest in a spate of recent celebrity pregnancy announcements: Pippa Middleton is reportedly expecting her first child. Claire Danes has a baby on the way and Kate Hudson is expecting her third baby, later this year, too.
