Actress Jennifer Connelly is making room for one more: The “Beautiful Mind” star is expecting her third child, CNN has confirmed.
Connelly and actor Paul Bettany, who have been married since 2003, are already parents to their 7-year-old son Stellan as well as 13-year-old Kai, whom Connelly had from a previous relationship with photographer David Dugan.
Connelly, who celebrated her 40th birthday on Sunday, has expressed how becoming a mom has changed the way she views what’s important in life.
“Becoming a mother has made all the difference in terms of learning to take more responsibility for myself and my life,” Connelly once told the U.K.’s Daily Mail. “Parenthood changed the way I do everything.”
The biggest thing, she added, “is wanting my kids to grow up safely and have happy lives.”
Connelly will next appear alongside Vince Vaughn and Kevin James in director Ron Howard's controversial comedy, "The Dilemma," in January. Bettany's "The Tourist," also starring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, is currently in theaters.
