The Star Wars actress had announced her pregnancy back in December and has secretly welcomed her newborn recently.
Felicity Jones gave birth to her baby and is a natural mother. The gender and the exact time she gave birth is still unknown. She played the role of freedom fighter Jyn Erso in 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The new mother was spotted in London on Friday for the first time since she gave birth. She was strolling down the street along with her baby. Felicity shares her first child with her husband, Charles Guard.
The actress was glowing as she stepped out in a navy sweater. She paired it with a blue-and-white striped skirt. The new-mother was also donning a pair of sunglasses. Felicity had not been spotted for a while now, mostly because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Both Felicity and Charles are reportedly a very private couple and they never share much about their lives. The actress confirmed her pregnancy back when she debuted her baby bump at The Aeronauts premiere in New York City in December. At the time, Felicity’s representative confirmed the news of her pregnancy to The Hollywood Reporter.
The actress dated her now-husband, Charles for two years, before he proposed her in May 2017. The couple got married in July 2018 at the Sudeley Castle in the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire.
Although the couple is private about their lives, Felicity had opened up back in 2014 about her outlook on love. She said she is a romantic and she loves romantic stories because of which, she explained, she made romantic movies. “It’s funny how seeing a love story never gets boring because it’s the dream isn’t it? It’s the dream to have a true connection with another human being,” she said.
Having A Child Is Empowering And Not Limiting
However, before meeting her husband, the actress dated sculptor Ed Fornieles for 10 years after they met at the Ruskin School of Art. Felicity opened up about how she worries that children might affect her career.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she said at the time she feels it is empowering and not limiting to have children. The actress said that from seeing her friends and relatives, she knows women get stronger and more decisive from having children. She said, “They don’t waste time doing things that they don’t want to do.”
The actress had also opened up about her marriage with Porter magazine last year. She said she loved being married to someone to give her a sense of a constant in her life amid the challenges of her ever-changing job as an actress. The actress expressed her happiness for having stability in a very changeable profession.
Felicity also described her perfect datedly with her husband, revealing: ”Oh, we were just saying this morning, if we didn’t have anything to do today – a long walk across Hampstead Heath… a proper walk, in wellington boots… a pub lunch and a movie.”
Felicity is going to appear in the animated film, Dragon Rider. She is also a part of the romantic drama The Last Letter From Your Lover, and the George Clooney directed sci-fi The Midnight Sky.
