Carey Mulligan has welcomed her second child with husband Marcus Mumford

Carey, who has been busy promoting her latest movie Mudbound at the Toronto International Film Festival, confirmed the happy news to People magazine. When asked by the publication about being a mother of two, the 32-year-old replied: 'It's good, thank you!' Carey and musician Marcus tied the knot in April 2012 in Somerset. Three years later, they welcomed their first child Evelyn. Speaking previously about starting a family with Marcus, the Great Gatsby star told The Mirror: "Yeah, definitely. But I don't think you can ever be worried about your career when it comes to stuff like that. You've got to have some perspective."

The pair have made a conscious effort to keep their private lives away from the public spotlight, with Carey previously admitting that "Marcus is the only thing that’s mine that I can keep totally away". In 2015, after giving birth to her first child, the actress told E! News: "Doing press and doing it with a tiny baby, timing has been very important and babies do what they want, which is a challenge." She added: "But it's really helpful when you have Meryl Streep backstage at events shouting at people on your behalf - telling them to hurry the hell up because you have a nursing mother here."
