Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany are expecting

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.

    A rarely beauty and gifted actress. I've enjoyed watching her on the silver screen since her appearance in Labyrinth. IMHO she looked the most amazing when she was dressed up in the restaurant scenes of The Rocketeer. I'm truly envious of her husband. Best wishes to you both on the new addition to the family.

    I have absolutely NO idea who these people are. I have never seen The Beautiful Mind. Has she done anything else? Because in my opinion, she is not a big name and who really cares is some hum-drum chick is pregnant?

    Seems most of you are human malfunctons who can't even handle this level of simple information. I don't know how you function in life with that level of concentration. Do you look at your relatives and see only cans? Neighbors? people walking down the street? on T.V? In the store? Sad little boys.
