Actress Marion Cotillard is pregnant! The happy announcement, however, comes amid a swirl of rumors that Marion had an affair with her Allied co-star Brad Pitt. Marion took to Instagram to address the gossip while announcing her baby news.
She wrote: “This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into.” Marion further explained the situation while sneaking in a small reference to her pregnancy.
She explained, “I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need.”
She finished by wishing Brad and soon-to-be-ex-wife Angelina Jolie well, noting, “Secondly, to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn’t distressing. And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery. Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love, Marion.”
Marion and boyfriend Guillaume Canet have been together since 2007. They have a five-year-old son, Marcel.
