If you woke up this morning moaning, biting your pillow and holding onto your dream about being the vessel for Idris Elba‘s future children, your psychic antennas were probably tuned to the fact that the “other” James Bond, Daniel Craig, and his wife Rachel Weisz have just announced that she has given birth to a baby girl.
The Daily Mail says that Rachel and Daniel are “very happy” with the news (just ignore Daniel’s expression in the above photo). It’s speculated that the baby was born in New York.
This is the first child for the couple, who have been married for approximately 49 Hollywood years (they were married in 2011 and I’m fairly certain that Hollywood years are the same as dog years). Daniel has a 24 year old daughter from a previous marriage and Rachel shares a 12 year old son with director Darren Aronofsky. This is very well played by the cunning pair, who now have a free built in nanny and babysitter for their baby. That will surely take the edge off those late night diaper changings.
While this later in life pregnancy doesn’t quite hit Janet Jackson or Brigitte Nielsen territory (who were 50 and 54 when they recently had their babies), Rachel is 48 and Daniel is 50. Parenthood at any age is no joke, but as you approach the age where all you should be worrying about is collecting enough change out of the couch to motor your Rascal scooter to the corner store to buy scratch tickets, I can’t imagine suddenly having a newborn to look after is a walk in the park. I hope these two aren’t above mainlining strong black coffee and the occasional whiskey to keep on top of this new baby struggle. Thankfully for rich people, God created something called “nannies.”
