One and done! At least that’s what Rachel Weisz said about having another child with her husband, Daniel Craig. “I definitely know there won’t be another one,” the Oscar-winning actress told the Daily Mirror in a new interview.
Rachel gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, with Daniel on Sept. 26. A few months earlier, the 48-year-old actress announced her pregnancy during an April interview with the New York Times. “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,” she gushed at the time.
Rachel and Daniel’s new baby girl — whose name has not yet been publicly announced — is the second child for both stars. Rachel shares her 12-year-old son, Henry, with her ex-husband, Darren Aronofsky, and Daniel has a 26-year-old daughter, Ella Craig, with ex-wife Fiona Loudon. “When I had my son, I thought I’d have maybe two or three more [kids],” Rachel admitted to the Daily Mirror. “But the preciousness of a new life and family means so much more now. I’m more mature and older.”
Rachel also recalled giving birth to her first kiddo twelve years ago, describing the pregnancy as a “miracle” and an “incredible experience.” So why the change of heart about possibly welcoming more children with Daniel? Well, The Mummy star said it’s because of her age. Regardless, the mom-of-two feels extremely blessed and considers herself “very lucky.” How sweet!
While chatting with the Daily Mirror, Rachel additionally gushed about her family’s upcoming holiday plans. Since the actress and Daniel are both UK natives now living in NYC, she revealed they’re “going to the country” over Christmas. “But I haven’t planned a meal and don’t know what we’re going to cook,” she said.
“We’ll have a plain, old Christmas tree. My son does Hanukkah and Christmas, so he lights the Hanukkah candles every day with his dad, so it’s like a mixture,” Rachel added.
