Marion Cotillard has mostly kept her private life, well…private. But about an hour ago, E! News reported that the actress and partner Guillaume Canet just welcomed a baby girl!
No further details have been shared about the couple’s little bundle of joy, but we know that this is the second time Cotillard and Canet are proud parents, after the birth of their 5-year-old son Marcel.
Back in September of last year, the Oscar-winning star announced that she was expecting her second child on Instagram.
This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn't distressing. And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery. Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j'aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d'absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j'aime, je me dois de m'exprimer. Pour commencer, j'ai rencontré il y a quelques années l'homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd'hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j'ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d'inventions aberrantes ne m'affecte en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la "presse", à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement… un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j'ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion

The post came after allegations were made by Angelina Jolie that Cotillard was having an affair with Brad Pitt. Little did many know that the very private actress was happily in love with long-time boyfriend and father of her children, Canet.
The parents-of-two first began dating about a decade ago after they met on the set of Love Me If You Dare Me and have been thick as thieves ever since. Cotillard recently made headlines when she posted a slew of sexy selfies on her Instagram account from what appeared to be a day on the set of Rock’n Roll (a film directed by Canet).
The shots showed her face looking dramatically different, with prosthetic lips and a wig, as she kissed the camera for the world to see.
Congratulations to Cotillard and Canet on being parents again!
