Actress Carey Mulligan is a new mum, but she's keeping things on the down-low for now,

The Far From The Madding Crowd star returned to the red carpet in London last night, amid reports she has already welcomed her first child with Marcus Mumford.

According to E! News, Carey and Marcus are parents to "a healthy and happy baby," though it's unclear when their little one arrived – and whether it was a boy or a girl.

Rather than make an official pregnancy announcement back in April, 30-year-old Carey let her bump do the talking.

After seeing the English star at various events looking noticeably curvier around the stomach area, fans eventually concluded that she must be expecting.

Her loose patterned sweater gave nothing away last night, but given that Carey and Marcus are notoriously private, we doubt we'll be getting any official birth announcement either.

Posing with Meryl Streep at the opening of the BFI London Film Festival, Carey looked relaxed and happy.

"She is just enjoying this time with her family and close friends," E!'s source said.

Carey and Marcus married in 2012 in an intimate barnyard ceremony in Bridgewater, England. 

Prior to meeting Marcus, the actress dated Tranformers star Shia LeBeouf for over a year, before parting ways when it became apparent they wanted different things.

"She was chasing marriage, family, kids more than I was," Shia revealed shortly after the break-up.


Hollywood A-lister Meryl Streep has found herself on the receiving end of serious backlash this week because of a t-shirt she was wearing.

Not exactly a fashion disaster, it was the slogan written on the t-shirt which has proved to be incredibly problematic.

The actress—along with her other female co-stars, including Carey Mulligan— appeared in a photo shoot for Time Out London, wearing a white shirt with the slogan, "I'd rather be a rebel than a slave."

Many on Twitter thought it was a poor decision to have the stars of Suffragette photographed wearing this T-shirt. (Photo: Twitter)

The line comes from a speech made by the women’s rights activist Emmeline Pankhurst, whom Meryl portrays in the film Suffragettes. The full passage reads:

 "I know that women, once convinced that they are doing what is right, that their rebellion is just, will go on, no matter what the difficulties, no matter what the dangers, so long as there is a woman alive to hold up the flag of rebellion. I would rather be a rebel than a slave."


Many social media users however took issue with the line printed on the t-shirts worn by the actresses.

Taking to Twitter, they pointed out the slogan implied racial insensitivity and slammed the actress online for wearing something that would have such connotations.


Such was the backlash that the magazine had to release a statement to address the issue:

"It has been read by at least half a million people in the U.K. and we have received no complaints," the publication said.

They added that it was people who saw the quote and images “out of context” who were mistaken.

This is the second time in recent weeks that Meryl has been facing some heat from the public.

In the same interview she was asked “are you a feminist?”

Her response disappointed many in Hollywood who are arguing for equal pay for female actors:

I am a humanist, I am for nice, easy balance.”



Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford are pregnant with their first child. 

The actress sparked pregnancy rumours as she was covering up her slim figure with looser and shapeless clothing of late. 

Following her appearance at the Tony Awards on Sunday night in New York, Us Weekly has reported that the British star is expecting. 

The British actress is around halfway through her pregnancy and from Sunday night's floor length red gown to last months Met Gala attire, her maternity style is certainly on-point. 

Carey and hubby Marcus both have extremely busy scheduales at the moment. Mulligan has been busy the past few months starring in Broadway's Skylight with Bill Nighy while her partner of five years has a new album Wilder Mind.

A source recently told E! News, "She is feeling wonderful. She is really excited to finish her projects up in the next coming months and enjoy some time off to just focus on her and family. Her pregnancy has been going well and she is trying to take it easy in between press with her new film Far from the Madding Crowd and her show on Broadway."

Carey's run on broadway ends next month but it seems she might be home alone for a while as her husband shows no signs of slowing down just yet. In fact, Mumford & Sons are even headlining a few major music festivals coming up like Reading and Leeds 2015 and Bonnaroo.

Mulligan usually doesn't open up about her personal life but made an exception during a 2014 interview with The Guardian.

When asked how marriage has changed her, she replied, "I think I'm more settled and more secure than I've probably ever been, and more confident and excited about the work choices that I make."

The notoriously private duo tied the knot back in April 2012 in front of around 100 guests—including several famous friends like Colin Firth, Sienna Miller and Jake Gyllenhaal—on a farm in Somerset.



Some exciting baby news today, as it's been reported that Carey Mulligan is pregnant with her first child.

Carey has been married to Mumford and Sons frontman Marcus Mumford for three years, and now it seems they could be about to become parents.

Although the couple have yet to confirm the news officially, a source close to the pair says it won't be long now. "The thing with these two is that they are extremely private people. So they are holding out on the announcement until Carey starts showing," the insider told Star magazine.

Speculation that the Never Let Me Go actress was expecting started earlier this month, when she stepped out in a loose fitting embellished Christian Dior gown at the London premiere of Far From The Madding Crowd, looking a little curvier than usual around the stomach area. 

The 29-year-old wore another loose gown to the New York premiere of the film, this time a demure Lanvin gown that skimmed her curves.

Carey and Marcus married in 2012 in an intimate barnyard ceremony in Bridgewater, England. Prior to meeting Marcus Carey dated Tranformers star Shia LeBeouf for over a year, before parting ways when it became apparent they wanted different things.

"She was chasing marriage, family, kids more than I was," Shia revealed shortly after the break-up.

Well, it looks like Carey has finally gotten what she wanted, and we are delighted for her.



If you're looking for an empowering female film next time you head to the cinema, you can't go too wrong with Carey Mulligan's latest flick.

Far From The Madding Crowd stars Carey as the headstrong, independent Bathsheba who attracts  three very different love interests – sheep farmer Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), the charming but reckless Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), and the steady and prosperous William Boldwood (Michael Sheen).

This story of passion and love is based on Thomas Hardy's 1874 literary classic, but it is truly a timeless tale.

Meryl Streep is set to play a key role in women’s history in new film Suffragette.

Meryl will take on the role of Emmeline Pankhurst, a suffragette who was heavily involved in gaining the vote for women. She also suffered terribly in a prison for her actions, being force fed through tubes while on hunger strike.

The movie will be written by Abi Morgan, writer of The Iron Lady, and directed by Sarah Gavron.

Carey Mulligan will star as a young feminist who decides peaceful methods are not working in the fight for women’s right to vote and so turns to more militant and violent tactics.

The movie will also star Helena Bonham Carter and Brendan Gleeson.
