Eddie Redmayne’s Wife, Hannah Bagshawe, Gives Birth to Second Baby

By  | 

And baby makes four for Eddie Redmayne and wife Hannah Badshawe! The couple, which announced its second pregnancy in early November 2017, welcomed baby number two, a boy named Luke Richard Bagshawe Redmayne, to the world on March 10, according to a birth announcement in The U.K.’s Sunday Times.

The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actor and PR executive are already parents to a 21-month-old daughter named Iris Mary Redmayne, who was born in June 2016, and decided not to find out the sex of their second child until the birth.

“We don’t know [what we’re having] — we’re not going to find out,” the 36-year-old told host Kelly Ripa on Live with Kelly and Ryan last month. “Last time we didn’t know either and we did that thing where there was basically only one name for each sex that we agreed on.”

The British star also admitted that he and his wife are “getting prepped to go back into the trenches” of not sleeping very much, as they recently “got to that stage when [they’re] beginning to get sleep and remember what that word means.”

But despite the lack of sleep, the Oscar-winner absolutely loves being a dad.

He said last November, “If Iris has managed to sleep through the night and then you hear a gentle squeak and you go in [her room] and turn on the light…and the massive grin that’s like, ‘It’s a whole new day.’ That’s probably the greatest thing. The amazing thing is that everything that everyone has ever told you — all of the clichés — you become the person starting to spout out the clichés, as if they are the newest thought.”

Congratulations to the Redmayne family!
