British actress Samantha Morton is expecting her second child, due in January.
The child’s father is her fiancé, fellow Brit Harry Holm.
“It is wonderful news, they are both very excited and looking forward to having their new baby,” Morton’s publicist, Karon Maskill, reports.
Samantha, 30, a double Oscar nominee for 1999’s Sweet & Lowdown and 2002’s In America, has a 7-year-old daughter, Esme, from a previous relationship with British actor Charlie Creed-Miles.
Samantha met Harry, 26, in 2005, when he directed her in a video for the band The Victims. He proposed to Morton in Paris in May 2006 – on her 29th birthday.
