I’m actually surprised by this news! Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell got married in late October of last year, and I just thought they were wild and crazy and sexy, but as it turns out, they were in the mood for baby-making! ERW and Jamie announced they are expecting their first child later this year. Meaning… if my math is correct (??), she got pregnant on the honeymoon…? Honeymoon baby!!
After secretly tying the knot late last year, Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have an even bigger surprise for 2013: There’s a baby on the way! “Evan Rachel Wood and husband Jamie Bell confirmed that they are expecting their first child later this year,” a rep for the pregnant actress, 25, and actor, 26, tells Us Weekly exclusively. “The couple is thrilled.”
It’s just the latest unexpected news for the Hollywood twosome, who got married in California on Oct. 30 in a top-secret bash, where the Mildred Pierce actress wore a custom Chantilly lace mermaid gown by Carolina Herrera. The British-born Man on a Ledge actor first met Wood in 2005, when they costarred together in Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends” video. After splitting in 2006, they reunited in summer 2011 — with Bell proposing in early 2012.
Back in November, Wood shot down false speculation that she was expecting. “Sorry to disappoint. But no baby on the way here,” the True Blood star (once engaged to Marilyn Manson) tweeted after she was photographed touching her stomach and wearing a baggy poncho at an L.A. grocery store.
It will be the first child for both.
I know a lot of you aren’t into her at all, but I’ve really grown to like Evan. I think she’s incredibly talented, and she’s toned down the more try-hard/look-at-me parts of her personality. And I think Jamie adores her, and he’s probably jazzed about this. I think Evan was “the one that got away” for him, and he waited for Evan to get through with Marilyn Manson, and then Jamie reentered her life and she was ready for him. That’s just how I read the situation! I mean, that’s how I imagine their sex life because I totally do that, and it’s really hot.
Anyway, congrats on the baby!
