It’s a boy for Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne and his 34-year-old PR executive wife Hannah Bagshawe.
The announcement was made in a birth notice in The London Times newspaper.
Luke Richard Bagshawe Redmayne was born March 10, 2018. He joins his 21-month-old sister Iris Mary.
The 36-year-old actor shared in February on Live with Kelly and Ryan that he and his wife decided to not find out the gender of their child until the arrival.
The normally private actor opened up about fatherhood to ET shortly after the birth of his daughter Iris saying, “I don’t think anything can prepare [you]," the Oscar-winner said at the time. “The amazing thing is everything that everyone tells you beforehand — which is all cliché — is true. You’ve heard it all before and yet when you’re experiencing it, it feels like the first time and you suddenly start telling everyone these things as if they’re completely new and original thoughts. And they’re like, ‘Yeah that’s the cliché.’
He continued, gushing: “But all the things [like] different parts of your heart opening … it’s really extraordinary,” he said. “There’s this amazing thing with children — whenever you’re having a bit of a tired moment or something, it’s like she’s always just one step ahead of you, smiling you along. It’s great.”
Eddie Redmayne, the actor who won his Oscar for portraying the role of Stephen Hawking in the movie Theory of Everything recently commented on his death making a statement, “We have lost a truly beautiful mind, an astonishing scientist and the funniest man I have ever had the pleasure to meet. My love and thoughts are with his extraordinary family.”
The couple announced in November that they would be adding to their family and a second child was on the way.
