Wowza. Mum really was the word for this Mumford son… or daughter? We’re still waiting for an official announcement, but sources are now confirming that Carey Mulligan and husband Marcus Mumford have a baby boy or girl, one that was supposedly born in September.
Talk about hiding a secret.
When you’re an actress like Mulligan — especially a petite one — we don’t expect huge preggo bellies or anything, but we are used to baby bump watch central. Especially when it comes to celebs. Turns out, not only did Mulligan and Mumford opt not to announce their pregnancy, but Mulligan cleverly hid it throughout a bunch of red carpet appearances.
How, you ask? Apparently flowy, forgiving dresses aren’t just comfortable, they’re perfect when it comes to hiding aforementioned baby bump. Add those to some oversized pieces, and no one would even question whether you’re pregnant.
Okay, sure. Looking back now we can kind of tell, but that’s because of hindsight, and all that jazz. Also, girl had her bump-hiding fashions down pat.
She’s apparently got the mom thing down pat too, or at least a really great makeup artist to make her look like she hasn’t lost a night of sleep since. Mulligan recently appeared at the red carpet for her new film Suffragette in London and she looked pretty fantastic, if we do say so ourselves.
Hidden pregnancy or not, motherhood looks good on her.
