Mélanie Laurent Expecting First Child

French actress Mélanie Laurent made her baby news public while posing at the red carpet at The Cannes Film Festival at the Hotel De Eden Roc in Cannes, France on Thursday (May 23).

The Now You See Me actress wore a long black dress to the Amfar 20th Cinema Against AIDS’ Gala. Laurent, 30, is a private person and has never named her husband.

US Weekly reports she only revealed in a March interview that he was a crew member.

“With my boyfriend/husband, I say that because I don’t like the word husband, he was a crew member and I was an actress and we would look at each other seductively for a few days before we talked,” she told British newspaper The Independent.

In another interview with French publication La Nouvelle République – she confirmed she is due in September and won’t have a lot of free time before the birth since her new movie – An Enemy with Jake Gyllenhaal and Isabella Rossellini is due out in late August.

    Great news! I just love her! She was dating singer Damien Rice, I really hope he’s the baby’s father.

      I would guess it is not Damien, as she said her boyfriend/husband is a crew member.
