Welcomes her second child with husband Marcus Mumford

Carey Mulligan has reportedly given birth to her second child with husband Marcus Mumford.

US Weekly report that The Great Gatsby actress and her rocker partner, who are already parents to two-year-old daughter Evelyn Grace, have welcomed a second child – with the family ‘thrilled’ at the news.

The 32-year-old Brit never officially confirmed her pregnancy yet she displayed a prominent baby bump on various occasions earlier in the year.

The famously tight-lipped actress had not confirmed she was expecting a second child, though her first pregnancy was similarly shrouded in secrecy.

Reports first emerged about a surprise pregnancy in July when super-slim Carey was suddenly spotted with a rounded stomach at hot spot Sexy Fish.

She and husband Marcus, who married in 2012, welcomed their first child Evelyn in 2015, three years after tying the knot.

The couple’s story is a romantic one: they were childhood pen pals who lost touch but later reconnected as adults.

On April 21, the pair celebrated their five year wedding anniversary, having wed in 2012 a few days after the movie Inside Llewyn Davis wrapped production – on which they were both working.

Carey has previously spoken about her daughter with New York Daily News, in which she said that the life lesson she’d teach Evelyn Grace would be: ‘No make-up, no piercings, no tattoos.’

Despite the actress’ successful career – which saw her nominated for an Oscar for An Education in 2009 – she recently revealed her nerves at dealing with fame.

She told So It Goes magazine: ‘I would do red carpets and be a wreck by the end; I found it awful and weird, standing there in my outfits with my body being judged and my appearance and make-up.
