The Theory Of Everything star Eddie Redmayne has welcomed his first child with his wife Hannah Bagshawe.

The actor, aged 34, welcome Iris Mary Redmayne on Wednesday.

A spokeswoman told The Mirror ”I can confirm that Eddie and Hannah Redmayne have welcomed their first child.”

Eddie and Hannah married a private members club in the UK in December 2014 and announced they were due to become parents in January.

Speaking earlier in the year, Eddie said they were busy building a collection of birthing and parenting guides, saying ”We’ve​ got our first book, which is looking at us, and we are staring guiltily as we should be learning ​how to be parents, but we haven’t ​opened them yet.”


The couple were keen to keep the sex of the baby a surprise, with Eddie continuing to say ”It’s gonna be a surprise. I’m going to be honest. I was like, ‘Maybe we should find out’ (and) my wife’s like, ‘We’re not finding out’. She wears the trousers”

Congratulations to the lucky couple!
