Craig and Weisz ‘very happy’ with their new baby daughter

According to friends of Daniel Craig, both parties are “very happy” about the birth of their daughter.

When Rachel – who starred in The Mummy and The Constant Gardener – shared the news in the April interview, she said she and Craig were very happy that they were going to have a “little human.” As reported by the Independent, she added that they couldn’t wait to meet him or her, adding that it was all a mystery.

The New York Times journalist had asked Weisz the secret to her “glowing” complexion, to which Rachel replied, saying she was pregnant adding that she would be “showing soon.” When asked about her relationship with Craig, Rachel said she was very happy to be married. The pair divide their time together between their London and New York homes.

When Rachel was interviewed the year after getting married, she was asked if she was thinking of having another child. At the time she said she was “pretty content,” and wasn’t planning on it, but added, “Never say never.”

Dad returning to 007 set

Meanwhile, Daniel Craig is getting ready to play his 007 role [VIDEO] again in the 25th James Bond film. Filming has been delayed due to the departure of director Danny Boyle, who left over “creative differences.” As previously reported, there was talk of killing off James Bond [VIDEO] at the end of the film and then having a Dr Who regeneration with a new actor in the next film. Boyle thought the whole idea was “ridiculous.”

With Craig playing 007 for the last time, he will likely have more time to spend with his newly-increased family.
