Actress Rachel Weisz gave birth to her first child with her husband, Daniel Craig, just three months ago, and now the Favourite actress is opening up about their little bundle of joy. “She does look very like him,” Rachel said, referring to how much their little girl looks like Daniel, while appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, Nov. 13. “She really does. She does, yeah.”
Stephen then couldn’t hold back a joke and asked if their baby girl — whose name has not yet been revealed to the public — has “steely blue eyes and big shoulders?” Going along with the host’s hysterical question, Rachel, 48, quipped, “Yeah, yeah, yeah.”
The jokes didn’t end there. Stephen then asked Rachel whether the married couple plans on raising their child as an American or British citizen. Which is a valid question considering Rachel and Daniel, 50, are both British but live in NYC. “Just human. I’m really into humans. Just from planet Earth,” Rachel said while showing up Stephen in their joke-off.
The couple’s first child together was born on Sept. 26 and joins Rachel’s 12-year-old son, Henry Aronofsky (from a previous relationship with Darren Aronofsky), and Daniel’s 26-year-old daughter, Ella Craig (from his first marriage to Fiona Loudon). Rachel and the James Bond star announced that they were expecting in April of this year. “I’ll be showing soon,” she told The New York Times last spring. “Daniel and I are so happy. We’re going to have a little human. We can’t wait to meet him or her. It’s all such a mystery.”
Since Daniel recently welcomed his first daughter with Rachel, the dad-of-two has reportedly been over the moon. Even though he’s exhausted, a source told Life & Style that Daniel is doing absolutely everything he can to be the best dad ever. “They could easily afford a nanny or two, but Daniel wants to be a hands-on dad,” the source revealed. “Daniel’s gone from sexy James Bond to Mr. Mom, and he’s loving every minute of it.”
Daniel must not mind functioning with minimal sleep while trying to soak up as much time with his daughter, considering he will be forced to spend some time apart once filming for Bond 25 begins in March 2019. While we all await more information on Daniel’s current and upcoming projects, we look forward to hearing more about his daddy-daughter relationship!
