Carey Mulligan is a mum! She and husband Marcus Mumford have welcomed their first child together. There was no forma announcement: we found out when she made a red carpet appearance at the British Film Institute’s London Film Festival sans baby bump.
A source said:
Carey have given birth to a healthy and happy baby. She is just enjoying this time with her family and close friends.”
As you can see, the actress is keeping details about her baby very quiet. We don’t even know if she had a boy or girl, much less the baby’s name!
Instead, Carey was focused on her film, ‘Suffragette,’ which chronicles the women’s suffrage movement.
What I love about this film is it didn’t feel like a documentary about a time; it felt like a film about today. It is a film to mark the achievements of what these women did and what they gave us but also to highlight where we are in the world. We still live in a society that is sexist and that goes throughout history.”
She admitted that she herself wasn’t all that familiar with the history of women’s voting rights while growing up.
I knew relatively little. I remember there was a small paragraph in a history book saying ‘they got there,’ basically. I had lots of images of women politely marching the streets holding banners. Reading the script, I remember Googling as I went, thinking, ‘Is this real?’
“[I feel] so lucky to grow up in a generation—and in a family—where I haven’t had to fight. I have had a very lovely but easy upbringing and I’m incredibly privileged in that respect so I have never had to fight. I suppose we fight for more equality but we also fight for people who aren’t in our position. I don’t know if I would throw rocks for myself but I would like to think I would throw a rock for somebody else.”
It sounds like making this film was quite an educational experience for Carey! I’m looking forward to seeing it. Congratulations on the new baby!
