I don’t know much about Eddie Redmayne. I fell asleep twice trying to watch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and I am ashamed I still haven’t seen The Danish Girl, but he and his wife, publicity executive Hannah Bagshawe make quite a lovely couple. The pair are expanding their brood, giving their 16-month-old daughter Iris Mary a baby brother or sister. On Wednesday they announced the upcoming arrival.

The couple broke the news to Britain’s Daily Mail, after 34-year-old Hannah showed off her budding baby bump at a charity event in East London. A spokesperson said in a short, sweet and to-the-point statement, “Eddie and Hannah Redmayne are delighted to confirm they are expecting their second child.”

Eddie and Hannah met while he was attending Eton College and she was at a nearby girls’ school. They began dating in 2012 and were married in December of 2014, right before Eddie won the Oscar for his portrayal of physicist Steven Hawking in The Theory of Everything. They welcomed daughter Iris Mary in June of 2016.

It seems Eddie has enjoyed fatherhood, especially taking some time off to get in some quality family time. Last November, he shared with PEOPLE’s Jess Cagle that, “I love time off. It’s amazing and so it’s been great because I’ve got to spend the first four-and-a-half, five months with Iris.” He added, “I know that that is a very privileged thing because I speak to many mates of mine who have kids and they’re back into work, days or three later.”

That some month, Eddie shared more about the joyful (and not-so-joyful) moments of parenthood with Ellen DeGeneres, telling her:

“Before you’re a parent you sort of hear people talking about [sleepless nights] and then suddenly you’re the guy who’s floating in constant jet lag with an IV of caffeine. And so I’ve become that person. But then occasionally there’s that amazing thing where it’s three o’clock in the morning and you’re sort of gently furious, and you get a little smile and your heart breaks a bit, and it’s all totally worth it.”

He seems like such a nice guy, and sounds like a wonderful Dad. Congrats to the happy couple!

      agreed. they are cute, and seem very sweetly invested in each other and their kid(s). I really like the two of them.

  2. Redgrl says:

    They seem like a lovely couple!

    • Esmom says:

      They do, so lovely. If anyone has anything sketchy to report about Eddie, I might just lose my faith in humanity forever.

    • Sunglasses Aready says:

      This couple is private, classy and respected. You never see them pap strolling all over the place documenting every inch of their lives.

  3. Sixer says:

    Congratulations! They both seem like gentle souls. We could do with more like that!

  4. LooseSeal says:

    You know how there are people you irrationally hate? I have the opposite with these two. I just irrationally love them. I have no real reason it’s just they seem lovely and I like her hair.

  5. Lindy says:

    They both seem delightful and very sweet. I relate to what he said about those middle of the night wakeups with a newborn. Also, my son and I fell in love with Fantastic Beasts! I can’t wait for the next installment.

  6. Ashley says:

    I vote for Eddie to present Best Actress next year instead of Affleck!

  7. Marigold says:

    “Gently furious.”

    This is how you know he isn’t bullsh*tting us because that is an extraordinarily apt description of overnights with babies.

  8. Who ARE these people? says:

    Really enjoy her “look” on red carpet, always looks lovely, not showy. Happy for them.

  9. Ayra. says:

    He’s such a sweet guy.
    I loved Fantastic Beasts, his andd Ezra’s performance were great.

  10. Tiffany says:

    Congrats to Iris and her stellar cheekbone parents.

  11. Turtle says:

    If I could immediately wipe any phrase from the English language, it would be “baby bump.” Magazines/websites love the phrase, but it just skeeves me out completely; not really sure why.

    • GinT says:

      YES, “baby bump” is an awful phrase. Almost anything could be better.

      Also, I don’t know much about Eddie but his face bothers me for some reason. I can’t put my finger on it why. Her wife has gorgeous hair, I’m so jealous.

  12. Jerusha says:

    In paragraph one their daughter is called Iris Rose. In paragraph three she’s called Iris Mary. Which is it? Iris Rose, I hope. It rolls off the tongue.

  13. Mia4s says:

    “I fell asleep twice trying to watch…..”

    Pretty much sums up my opinion of Eddie Redmayne. 😬

    They’re cute though, congrats and all that.

  14. Tina says:

    They seem charming. I’m happy to hear you say that, Corey, as I fell asleep in the cinema trying to watch Fantastic Beasts. I was very tired, but it was very dull too.

  15. drpr-nyc says:

    What a lovely couple – they just seem so genuine and kind. Best wishes to them both. I just checked out the DM article linked and Hannah’s waist is extraordinarily small (she’s stunning! And I love her fashion taste).

  16. teacakes says:

    That’s sweet, congratulations to them! I wasn’t super into Fantastic Beasts either but I loved Eddie in it, as well as the Niffler. I just wish they were in a better movie.

  17. FLORC says:

    I truly adore this couple. They seem genuine.
    And in the spirit of this sites namesake and balance… here’s my next comment….

    They look like brother and sister. In features and body language.
