Barbie actress Margot Robbie is pregnant with her first child

The Barbie actor and producer was spotted in Lake Como, Italy with her husband Tom Ackerley on July 7 baring her baby bump. Robbie was photographed wearing a white cropped t-shirt and an oversized blazer with matching trousers. Her belly was displayed under her coat as she walked alongside her husband.

Following the paparazzi photos, People confirmed the rumours that she is expecting.

Her pregnancy comes just about a year after the whirlwind success of Barbie. Robbie was heavily involved in bringing the project to life — serving as the star and producer — and later posing for a Barbie-inspired book from her stylist Andrew Mukamal about her press tour outfits. The film grossed more than $1.4 billion at the worldwide box office.

Margot Robbie and British film producer Tom Ackerley first met on the set of the film Suite Française, when Ackerley was working as an assistant director and Robbie was acting. They started dating in 2014 and married in a private ceremony on Australia's Gold Coast in 2016. Together, they founded their production company LuckyChap Entertainment with Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr, which is behind films including Barbie, Saltburn, I, Tonya, Promising Young Woman, and more.

Robbie told Vogue in a 2016 interview that when she first met Ackerley, she was the “ultimate single gal” and not looking for a relationship at all.

“And then this crept up on me,” she said at the time. “We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him, but I thought, Oh, he would never love me back. Don't make it weird, Margot. Don't be stupid and tell him that you like him. And then it happened, and I was like, Of course we're together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.”
