It’s a beast! We mean, a boy!
Fantastic Beasts star, Eddie Redmayne, and his wife, Hannah Bagshawe, have become parents for the second time.
The couple has been married since December 2014 (which meant they graced red carpets as newlyweds en route to Eddie winning his Oscar for Best Actor) and welcomed their daughter a year and a half ago.
Now Iris Mary Redmayne will be playing the role of big sister to Luke Richard Bagshawe.
Luke’s birth was officially announced in The London Times which revealed his birthdate as the 10th of March.
The new addition means that the couple will once again have to forgo the luxury of sleep, which Eddie described on The Ellen DeGeneres Show after Iris’s birth by saying, “Before you’re a parent, you hear people talking about [not getting enough sleep], then suddenly you’re the guy who’s floating in a constant jet-lagged [state], with an IV of caffeine.”
But it’s not all bad, as he continued, “It’s that amazing thing when it’s 3 o’clock in the morning and you go in and you’re gently furious, and you get a little smile and your heart breaks a bit, and it’s totally worth it.”
We hope you’ve been brushing up on the theory of everything, Eddie!
