    Default Rachel Weisz announces pregnancy at 48

    Rachel Weisz has announced that she is expecting a baby with her husband Daniel Craig.

    The 48-year-old actress has an 11-year-old son, whilst Bond star Craig, 50, has a 25-year-old daughter.

    In an*interview with the New York Times*, the star of The Mummy said: "I'll be showing soon. Daniel and I are so happy."

    Weisz, seen most recently in The Mercy, and Craig have been together for eight years and married in New York in 2011.

    'Such a mystery'

    She told the New York Times they did not know the sex of the baby, saying: "We're going to have a little human.

    "We can't wait to meet him or her. It's all such a mystery."

    Talking about her marriage, Weisz also said in the interview: "I'm very happy being married - very, very happy."


    The Oscar-winning actress is currently promoting her new film Disobedience - based on Naomi Alderman's book of the same name - in which she stars and has produced.

    The film is about a young woman who becomes estranged from her North London Orthodox rabbi father, and the local community, because she is gay.

    "They're not part of modern life," she says. "They don't have the internet or TV and all that stuff. And I grew up down the road from this place.

    "It's like the '50s, but it's happening right now."

    I had no idea she was 48, she seems much younger.

    I wish her a healthy pregnancy as well! I'm guessing chances of a miscarriage is high at this age.

    Having at baby at 48 sounds like a nightmare to me, but more power to her, I guess.

    Actually, I think it's pretty cool, as long as they saw a genetic counselor and the fetus is healthy. She looks way younger than 48, in my opinion, so probably has more stamina than most at that age.

    I had a great-aunt or great-great aunt who had twins at 50 (naturally, obviously, back then) and then her husband committed suicide shortly after the birth. So, as usual, it's probably the dad who is the weak link anyway.

    I am really against nearly 50 year olds having kids from the kids' point of view. I don't care how healthy she is now. She will have a kid just out of teens when she is 70. Having said that, at least she has all the money in the world to have help raising the kid while she continues to be a movie star. It's also a shame that the other kids in the family are much older. But anyway, good luck to her and especially the child!

    Definitely. Just depends on the person. There are a ton of people that live to be very healthy and active into their 90s now, so if they have the stamina then go for it. If not, do a Maude. No judgment.

    ^ Obviously I am not pointing the finger at anyone on here. It will be hard on the kid but then I guess the nannies will be in their twenties.

    Honestly, they're rich. She doesn't need stamina when she can afford 24/7 help of all sorts.
