We must admit: Carey Mulligan, who showed up at the Radio City Music Hall on 7th June, looked absolutely stunning in her boxy maroon Balenciaga gown on the red carpet for the 2015 Tony Awards. But if you were wondering why she decided to wear that loose-fitting dress, wonder no more.
According to US Weekly, multiple sources told them exclusively that “The Great Gatsby” star is expecting her first child with “Mumford & Sons” frontman Marcus Mumford.
Mulligan and Mumford were once childhood pen pals in London and reconnected as adults. They began dating in March 2011 and became engaged in August of the same year. In April 2012, they tied the knot on a farm in Somerset, England, in front of approximately 200 guests. Other than their families and friends, Sienna Miller, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Colin Firth were among the guests.
After 3 years of marriage, the married couple are finally ready to welcome their first child, but they decided to keep mum about it. That is, until, someone spilled the beans.
According to Star Magazine, a source said, “The thing with these 2 is that they are extremely private people, so they are holding out on the announcement until Carey starts showing”.
One Broadway source also told US Weekly, “They weren’t planning on announcing, but she hasn’t stopped working. Everybody around her is being very supportive. The show ends soon and they’re going back to England after.”
Even without their announcement, it was glaringly obvious that Mulligan is pregnant as she has been wearing loose-fitting dresses to conceal her baby bump. Featuring an embroidered ringed collar, she wore a black Balenciaga trapeze gown that perfectly hid her baby bump at the 2015 Met Gala last month. She was accompanied by her musician hubby of 3 years at both Tonys and Met Gala.
Mulligan, who graced the May 2015 issue of Vogue, revealed that she “loath to talk about Mumford in public”. When asked how she’s enjoying married life, she said “they are looking forward to having a family” and added:
Marcus is the only thing that’s mine that I can keep totally away, so I try to.
Her close pal Sienna Miller pointed out that she is a big fan of the couple’s “normalcy” as “they both come from very solid families and “have a real sense of the life they want to live”:
They have chickens and a dog, and roasts and friends, jams by campfires. It’s sort of idyllic. Marcus can headline Glastonbury and Carey can be nominated for however many Oscars, and then they come back to their farm, and they’re in big woolly jumpers and funny hats, raising piglets. It’s an amazing balance they’ve managed to strike. I can’t wait for a little baby to come along.
Well, Miller, you’re not alone. We can’t wait to see the baby too! Congrats, Mulligan and Mumford :D
