The Half of a Yellow Sun actress, who already has two daughters, Ripley, 12, and Nico, eight, is expecting her third child with her husband Oliver Parker. The 40-year-old British star’s manager confirmed the happy news to UsMagazine.com.
Another source close to the actress said: “She couldn’t be more happy. You can barely tell she has a bump and she’s been dressing different because of it.” The actress attended the premiere of her new movie at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday (08.09.13).
Thandie previously revealed that motherhood has taught her a lot about what is really important in life. She said: “It’s amazing how you start again and you re-live your childhood. The universe has given me girls because I needed to live that girlhood again in a fresh way.
Motherhood has taught me how exquisite human beings are and how tender, fragile and powerful we are.”
She added: “I want my girls to feel empowered. That’s the most important thing. I think as a mom it’s important to teach your children that they’re extraordinary, powerful beings. Your job is to keep the path clear so there is nothing they can trip up on.”
