Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons and his wife, actress Carey Mulligan, have reportedly welcomed their first child together. A source told E! News, “Carey has given birth to a healthy and happy baby…She is just enjoying this time with her family and close friends.”
The private couple never publicly commented on the pregnancy and Carey did her best to hide her growing baby bump under a well-designed gown at the Tony Awards in June where she was nominated for best performance by an actress in a leading role for her part in Skylight.
The English actress has received critical acclaim for her role in the feature films An Education and starred opposite Leonardo Di Caprio in The Great Gatsby. Mumford & Sons have received two Brit Awards and several Grammy nominations; they will resume touring in November.
Marcus and Carey were reportedly childhood pen pals who lost touch and later reconnected as adults. They married in a private ceremony in England in 2012 and reside on a farm in Somerset.
