Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford have expanded their family to include a total of five members. The actress recently disclosed that she gave birth to their third child several months ago in Vogue’s November cover story, which was published on Tuesday.
During the interview, conducted when she was six weeks postpartum, the 38-year-old actress humorously began with a stained outfit, saying, “Here I am, ready for Vogue. I’m going to change [the baby], and then we’re going to find Mum another shirt.” Despite her recent arrival, Mulligan described her life as “very normal,” revolving around activities like school runs, Sunday lunches, and other everyday logistics. The article, however, did not reveal any further details about the third child’s name or gender.
Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford’s relationship has a unique origin, as they were childhood pen pals before rekindling their connection as adults. The frontman of Mumford & Sons proposed in 2011, and they tied the knot in April of the following year. Their family initially grew when Carey Mulligan gave birth to their daughter, Evelyn, who is now seven years old, in September 2015, followed by their son, Wilfred, now 5, born in August 2017.
News of Carey Mulligan’s third pregnancy was confirmed by her representative in January. She made her debut with her growing baby bump at the American Film Institute Awards luncheon that same month, elegantly cradling her burgeoning belly in a black dress.
While Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford tend to keep their children out of the public eye, the actress shared in an interview with Baby magazine in 2018 that motherhood had a profound impact on her acting career. She explained how portraying a character in “Mudbound” who experiences a miscarriage was a transformative experience because it allowed her to connect on a deeper level with her role. Mulligan revealed that prior to becoming a mother, she had portrayed mothers on screen without truly understanding the depth of the emotions involved. However, after becoming a parent herself, the emotions became more intense and relatable.
In this latest chapter of their lives, Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford continue to balance their successful careers with the joys and challenges of raising their three children.
