Carey Mulligan and husband Marcus Mumford are reportedly expecting a baby.

The Great Gatsby actress is married to Mumford and Sons frontman Marcus Mumford. And according to a number of sources, the couple are to welcome their first baby.

“They weren't planning on announcing, but she hasn't stopped working,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Everybody around her is being very supportive.”

The 30-year-old walked the red carpet at the 2015 Tony Awards on Sunday as she was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her role in Skylight. While she lost out to fellow Brit Dame Helen Mirren, who won for her role as Queen Elizabeth II in The Audience, Carey added to speculation that she was with child by wearing an oxblood colour gown which flowed over her waist and stomach.

“The show ends soon and they're going back to England after,” the insider continued to the outlet regarding her run on Broadway.

Carey and Marcus tied the knot in 2012 in Somerset, England. The couple are notoriously private when it comes to their personal life but Carey recently opened up a little about their relationship.

“Marcus is the only thing that’s mine that I can keep totally away, so I try to," she admitted to American Vogue.

However close friend and fellow actress Sienna Miller has given more of an insight into the rumoured parents-to-be.

“They have chickens and a dog, and roasts and friends, jams by campfires," the Factory Girl actress also told Vogue. "It’s sort of idyllic. Marcus can headline Glastonbury and Carey can be nominated for however many Oscars, and then they come back to their farm, and they’re in big woolly jumpers and funny hats, raising piglets. It’s an amazing balance they’ve managed to strike. I can’t wait for a little baby to come along."
