Kate Mara and Jamie bell welcomed their first child together a few weeks ago. They confirmed the news in an Instagram post on 27 May 19.
The former House of Cards star, Kate, fell in love with her now husband, Jamie, on the press tour for Fantastic Four. The couple co-starred in the movie but had met 10 years before during a screen test, where they had to share a kiss. According to Mara, there was a spark between them, but they acted on it while promoting Fantastic Four in 2015.
The two tied the knot in 2017 after a 7-month engagement. It was a low-key wedding and was announced to the world when Jamie posted a picture of them sharing a kiss on twitter, captioned “Me and Mrs. B”. Kate posted the same picture on Instagram, captioning it “Nuptials”. This was Mara’s first and Bell’s second marriage.
The two stars have always been private about their life. Mara announced that she is expecting her first child after the 2019 Oscars Date Night and according to reports, she was 5 months pregnant then. The 36-year-old actress pulled off the baby bump with a white and silver minidress by Giambattista Valli, black heels and a maroon purse. Kara later posted a picture on Instagram saying, “Went on a date with our bun in the oven”. This is Bell’s second child who previously has 5 year old son with his ex-wife Evan Rachel Wood.
The couple was very happy with the news. In an interview, Kate said, “Family is everything to me. I like being surrounded by lots of kids and family at all times”. This certainly shows how she always wanted to have a little family of her own. Despite being excited for the baby, the news came at a time when both the parents were swamped with work and upcoming projects.
Kate is to star in an adaptation of Hannah Fidell’s 2013 Sundance feature, “A teacher”. She is also one of the executive producers of FX’s limited series. Jamie, on the other hand, is starring in a movie called “Skin”. It is based on a true story of a former Neo-Nazi Skinhead. The movie is said to be released on 26 July 2019. Bell also played the role of Bernie Taupin in the Elton John biopic, “Rocketman”.
The happy couple was last seen in Los Angeles, on May 7th. Mara seemed to be covering her baby bump with a plain white T shirt and a denim jacket. She was also seen walking their dog with a child, whose identity is still unknown.
The two finally announced the birth of their daughter in an Instagram post. She was born around the second week of May but the couple, however, wanted to keep the news to themselves and close family members before announcing it to the world. Kara posted a picture of the baby’s feet on 27th May 2019, saying, “We had a baby a couple weeks ago. Here are her feet”. The baby seems to be napping on a fluffy white blanket in cute heart printed pajamas. Many well-known celebrities, including Courtney Cox, Jessica Chastain and Janet mock, then proceeded to congratulate her on becoming a mother in the comments section. The parents still haven’t announced her name.
Let’s just hope they keep us updated with the news about their beautiful baby girl! Many heartiest congratulations to the happy couple!
