Marion Cotillard’s rep has confirmed to People that she has given birth to the baby she has been pregnant with over the last several rumor-filled months. If real life was a soap opera (I wish), then this would be where the tense music would start playing and we’d dramatically zoom-in on Brad Pitt’s face to really capture the exaggerated fear in his eyes.
41-year-old Marion’s new baby is a little girl, but we don’t know its name or anything like that. It’s her second kid with her 43-year-old French actor/director partner of around 10 years Guillaume Canet. They already have a 5-year-old son named Marcel.
So obviously Marion’s pregnancy was filled with drama. Marion and Brad’s press tour for Allied became more awkward than their sex scenes after it was rumored Brad’s marriage to Angelina Jolie ended after she discovered he was cheating on her with Marion. The rumors went into overdrive after Marion announced she was knocked up. Marion denied it and both she and Guillaume told everyone to shut up about it.
Still, I’m sure there are still a whole lot of people calling up Maury Povich today and telling him to prep a paternity test. As if they need to do that! I’m willing to bet the MBTs (Marion Baby Truthers) have already come up with a comprehensive visual system to identify whether the baby was made by Guillaume or Brad. For example, if the baby is seen wearing a striped shirt and a tiny beret, has a little moustache, and is clutching a croissant stuffed with macarons, then it’s obvious who the daddy is. Duh, it’s Brad! You can’t tell the MBTs any different.
