The Oscar-winning actress and her husband, The Tourist star Paul Bettany, have confirmed that they will be adding another member to the family.
Who cares if Jennifer Connelly just turned 40? The gorgeous Academy Award winner is pregnant with baby number three, which will be her second — big brother Stellan is 7 — with hubby Paul Bettany, 39 (other big brother Kai, 13, is from her previous relationship with photographer David Dugan).
A representative for Jennifer confirmed the good news to Us magazine, but offered no due date. However, if the couple waited until the end of Jennifer’s first trimester to announce the news, then she’d be expecting the baby in late spring.
Jennifer has talked before about how much motherhood helped her career. “I don’t think I would have been able to do the quality work that followed if it hadn’t been for my son,” she said last year. “He changed me. He helped me to understand myself and find my place in the world.”
Congratulations, Jennifer and Paul!
