Eddie Redmayne & Hannah Bagshawe are allegedly expecting their first child


Here are some assorted photos of Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe leaving LA and coming home to London. It’s worth noting that Eddie has been in LA for weeks, doing his quiet campaign. At this time last year, people were like “Eh, he doesn’t have a real shot at an Oscar.” But Eddie’s quiet campaigning really pays off, as we’ve seen. I think he’s guaranteed an Oscar nomination this year for The Danish Girl, and he’s going to play the game again. And who knows? Anything can happen. If Eddie ends up with two Oscars in a row, I won’t be sad.

Eddie and Hannah just celebrated their first wedding anniversary, and word around the British tabloids is that Hannah is knocked up! Eddie Redmayne and his wife Hannah Bagshawe are expecting their first child together, according to reports. The Oscar-winning actor and his publicist wife have told close friends and family they are expecting next June, The Sun writes.

Eddie and Hannah, both 33, celebrated their first wedding anniversary on December 15, and are said to be ‘extremely excited’ at the prospect of becoming first-time parents. The Sun reports Eddie and his wife ‘are delighted and extremely excited. They don’t want to find out the sex of the baby but are happy to tell close friends and family they are expecting.’

A representative for Eddie Redmayne has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.

I think this is probably more than possible. And it’s funny to me that we just take Eddie’s stuff as an uncontroversial “given” while if another actor pulled this off, we would be side-eyeing the hell out of it. I mean, Eddie and Hannah got married in the heat of last year’s Oscar campaign, and now they’re probably going to announce her pregnancy during the heat of another Oscar campaign? Well timed and well played! Leonardo DiCaprio should be paying attention.

Oh, and Eddie gave a really sweet interview to People Magazine this week – he said his first year of marriage has been “the most wonderful whirlwind.” He said Hannah “is an absolute saint” for putting up with him and the “absurd circus” of his career. I think people give them a pass because they seem genuinely in love, right?

    Nice news for Eddie and Hannah

    People give them a pass because they live their lives quietly and they aren’t doing anything outrageous or showy. I also don’t think AMPAS voters care about the personal lives of the actors when they vote for Oscars. If they did, Jack Nicholson wouldn’t have two Oscars and wouldn’t be the most nominated actor ever.

    Eddie’s performance in The Danish Girl is good and I won’t be surprised if he scores a nomination this year but I don’t think he should get the win. There’s more to being a woman than posing prettily and flitting one’s hands about. Alicia Vikander actually was the stronger lead.

    • Minxx says:

      Jack Nicholson was nominated in the days when AMPAS did not care too much about personal lives of the actors, Nicholson was always a rake and they loved him. I think that now it’s a different story.

    • als says:

      @Lilac – when you say They live a quiet life I supppose you mean Eddie, because Hannah does not do anything but him – before you ask me how I know, I’d say it is Obvious and Eddie just confirmed it above.
      Forget Dicaprio, I want someone like her. Plus, she does not seem as delusional as Garner.

      • Fluff says:

        Not sure what you mean by that, als. Eddie’s wife has a normal job outside of the entertainment industry, and isn’t interested in being famous. She’s just a nice, normal woman who happened to fall in love with a celebrity.

        There are some fans ‘Cumberbitching’ her – saying the marriage is fake and for PR and that she forced or manipulated him into marrying her. Fortunately they are few and far between.

    • OhDear says:

      He’s also under less scrutiny because he doesn’t have the fandom that some of his peers have. If he were, Lord help his wife.

      Congrats to them if they are expecting.

    • Kate says:

      He gets a pass because unless you’re really following him, you won’t realize how much personal PR he does–he doesn’t have a fandom that draws attention to every move he makes. These pap photos, for example, appeared the day the pregnancy news “leaked, ” all timed.

      Congrats to them!

  2. Minxx says:

    Great news and perfectly timed for the Oscar season..
    what to make of this?

    • InvaderTak says:

      Pure speculation. So he never talked about or there’s not any real information about his exes. And there might not be any; he might have been single for most of his life and then found “the one” and married. That doesn’t mean there’s something nefarious going on now. The “evidence” in the comments is that they’re like, so awkward in pap pictures and that she’s a publicist. That makes them a work couple to me. Kinda pointless and feeds into the gossip cannon that everything is PR**

      **but we know the truth!

    • ell says:

      meh, i tend not to trust blinds. that said, for all we know he could be bisexual.

    • OhDear says:

      I find it weird that no publicized girlfriends automatically equals gay (or bi) in some people’s perceptions. Some people just tend to be perpetually single.

    • Edie says:

      I only realised who he was about three weeks ago, because I live under a rock (a.k.a. my dissertation) and I never put all the pieces together, but I started to read about him pre-fame and he had started saying things like, “You want some kind of stability” or “Someone to share it with,” etc. in interviews I was reading from pre-marriage. I don’t want to sound cruel, but it sort of seems a little more like, “Who is in my Rolodex or group of friends who I could possibly date and maybe marry before my career takes off?” which I’ve seen my girlfriends do, their sentimental, “I’m over 30″ panic sets in and they set-off to get married. I guess that’s what rubs me wrong and, I understand they’re edited, but, he gushes about his wife and how fabulous it is to be married and how wonderful she is and she’s a “Saint.” I’ve been married three months and if my husband was at his firm telling his paralegal what a “Saint” I am, I would tell him to cut the sh*t, but maybe I’m more pragmatic. I get that people are in the honeymoon period a long time, but tone it down, everyone: magazines, you, you, and you, too. It always wreaks of insecurity. I can’t believe I have such a lengthy opinion about this, I’ll blame Christmas refreshments.

    • soooo i kinda think this blind is true….

      I remember him being linked to cara d (eybrowticon) lol and some other low-level english roses I cant seem to recall right this moment

      also i would totally peg him as bi AND that’s ok too :)

  3. LAK says:

    I prefer the quiet campaign than th loud ‘I deserve it’ campaigning. It leaves the awards with some dignity and the public are nonethewiser and have some respect for the awards as a result.

  4. Catelina says:

    His campaigning last year wasnt what I would call quiet. He was everywhere, at every event, shaking every hand. This year he’s been much more low key. He’ll get his second nomination but not a win, especially for a movie critics have deemed meh and that many have said he gets upstaged by his co star in.

    • Insomniac says:

      I read an article on a movie site last year that stated he was, by far, the most aggressive campaigner of the season. I think the writer said he’d been dubbed “Eddie Redcarpet” because of it. He just wasn’t all that well known and people like him, so he was relatively under the radar. And hey, it worked, so I’m sure he’ll do it again.

  5. michelle b says:

    The only non-children’s film that I’ve seen recently is Brooklyn, which I enjoyed. I have a 3-month old, so I don’t expect to be able to see any of the Oscar films in the theatre this year. That said, I am rooting for Eddie, if only to see Leo DiCaprio’s head explode when another and younger actor gets two Oscars before he gets a single one. Especially because Leo’s whole campaign seems to be “This was the most miserable experience of my life, of anyone’s life on this set, someone give me an Oscar please.”

  6. antipodean says:

    Hannah’s gray scarf in those pictures is sublime, it looks like cashmere to me. I am a sucker for cosy scarves! They seem like a well-suited, sweet couple, I hope they are happy together, and mazel tov if there is a bubba in view.

  7. JKL says:

    There is something so “put on” about this guy; he rubs me entirely the wrong way.

    • Edie says:

      I feel the same way and I’ve been petrified of saying it, for fear of being shouted-down, but I did say it to some friends last night at dinner when we were talking about it. He reminds me of a guy I went to U of London with who went to Cambridge, posh background, etc. and I had a massive crush on him, but there was an edge beneath that veneer. Nice and everything, lovely to look at, but I just couldn’t put my finger on WHAT my problem is that I can’t fully warm-up to this seemingly lovely guy! I’ve read before about how he’s just TOO MUCH. I’m still not making sense, but there it is.

      • platospopcorn says:

        This is my take on Tom Hiddleston, too. It’s almost like, at the end of the day, these guys would be snotty to deal with if you weren’t from their background/on their level/in their social circle (or, alternatively, someone who could do something for them). Ditto Benedict Cumberbatch.

    • siri says:

      Same here, I just can’t warm up to him, although I think he’s a good actor. Perhaps he’s a little elitist…

  8. BW says:

    He married a normal looking woman who’s exactly his age, and waited until after they got married to get her pregnant. How refreshing.

  9. Megan says:

    I just love how honest and genuine and refreshing he is… I didn’t know anything about him until I watched his Oscar speech last year and was amazed by him

  10. vauvert says:

    If true, congrats and all the best.
    He has quietly replaced Ben as one of my faves. I don’t mind campaigning if done with grace and humor and intelligence. Hannah didn’t go around smirking, they didn’t need to make this a grand love story between him and the super talented actress /director whatever, and every time he spoke it felt honest, grateful and enthusiastic.
    It is hard not to compare (favourably) with Ben’s awkward interviews in which he talked about Sherlock’s imaginary sex life and other such embarrassing things. That was pandering to the lowest common denominator and really turned me off him completely. Have some respect for yourself and your fans, man. Eddie is classy and I think he will be both a commercial success and an awards contender many more times. Oh, and his Fantastic Beasts trailer looks awesome!

  11. CornyBlue says:

    The letterman jacket and the nerd glasses together are killing me! i do not know why I am wheezing!!
    The push behind Danish Girl seems low and would not be surprised to see it miss Best Picture. I do think it did not make a lot of Critic’s lists.

  12. cakecakecake says:

    He deserves it for The Danish Gil, that movie was EVERYTHING to me.
    I laughed and I cried.

    He is great at his craft, THIS is someone that would have me tongue tied, if we were to ever meet…oh and Helena (HBC)

    Happy Holidays to everyone on this site, thanks for the laughs and thanks to the many that inform me or as my aunt used to say “pus fat on my head”

  13. Dani says:

    I have a serious question with no snark intended – does Hannah work/have a career? I’m genuinely curious and not sure if I read anything about her before.

    • Ana A. says:

      I think she works in PR for a big investment bank.

    • afriendofafriend says:

      She left her job in finance/corprorate PR* and is now attempting to make a start in antiques. Her father is an art dealer, so she has sufficient resources and connections, but the decision to shift careers was highly motivated by her desire to be flexible enough to travel with Eddie. Kudos, I say. They are a lovely couple. As to timing, Eddie is one of those quietly competent and driven people for whom there are few coincidences, but this is rather to be admired. No true reflection on his sincerity, in my mind, but a testament to his commitment to planning and forethought.

      *P.S. It forever grates that she is assumed to be an entertainment publicist. Truth is not a particularly valued commodity, however, so I have to just roll my eyes and keep scrolling.

      • Dara says:

        @friend – Hannah may have had some say in the timing too, and opted to have a baby when hubby would be home and not on set somewhere. Judging by his projects listed in IMDb, he’s got a nice little break between Oscar season and having to do promotion for Fantastic Beasts, and I didn’t see anything coming up for the rumored due date. Timing a red carpet baby-bump during Oscar season might have been just a happy coincidence.

      • afriendofafriend says:

        @Dara – -Spot on! Timing is not always motivated by crass concerns. And as anyone who has children knows, Mother Nature very rarely submits perfectly to our plans either way!

  14. Holmes says:

    I love them. I love his fashion sense and she has one of the best RBFs I’ve ever seen (meant as a compliment). Congrats if true.

  15. Sarah01 says:

    Congrats, hope everything goes well, baby is healthy and will be sooooo beautiful. i hope the baby inhertits Eddie’s checkbones, pout and fashion sense.
    I don’t think she’s plain I think she’s very pretty, she doesn’t doll herself up, love her hair colour.

  16. NUTBALLS says:

    I don’t have any problem with Eddie’s campaigning… that’s what you do when you have an Oscar-baity movie. I give him a pass for being lovely in his interviews and keeping it low-key.

    The timing of the pregnancy is ideal for an Oscar campaign (and likely not coincidence), but with as stylish as these two look on the red carpet, I hope for that reason alone that he gets nominations.

    I want to see Hannah in cute maternity clothes as her fashion sense is much better than Keira’s or Sophie’s was last year. These two are going to look awesome on the red carpet together.

  17. Fanny says:

    Hannah is no longer in pr. Eddie cleared this up last year. She deals antiques at a shop in Chelsea. I don’t remember where I heard this but I think before that she did some kind of internship with Sothebys. Anyway, it is a real job and she has to get time off when she accompanies Eddie to awards shows. Eddie also said once in a print interview that he was going to go home to make her dinner since she was at work.

  18. Lou says:

    Hannah is very pretty and not high maintenance. I see guys like Eddie and Ed Sheeran going for the smart girls with their ow careers and accomplishments, who want nothing to do with the showbiz life and they can live their lives in relative normality and peace. I’m sure it is hard trying to work schedules out, but it’s better than having someone tagging along and living off of your money with no goals of their own.
