Marion Cotillard has just confirmed that she is expecting her second child with her long-term partner Guillaume Canet.
Taking to her official Instagram account to issue a statement, the actress announced that they are ‘expecting’.
Sadly, though, Marion also felt the need to address the completely untrue speculation that she could have been a factor in the divorce of her co-star Brad Pitt. Sigh.
Of course, there’s no truth in these rumours, and the award-winning actress has shut them down in the most dignified way.
Marion wrote: ‘This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into.
‘I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up.’
Marion continued: ‘Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need.’
Directly referencing Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce, the 40-year-old said: ‘Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment.’
