Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald is pregnant! In an interview with Redonline.co.uk – the Empire Boardwalk star reveals she’s expecting her second child with husband Dougie Payne – the bassist from Travis. The couple already have a 4-year-old son named Freddie.
Macdonald – who is due in December – says they currently don’t have a nanny because Travis has been on a break the past couple of years.
She states, “We don’t have a nanny, so I knew it would be interesting. And, actually, it was such a laugh.”
The family have been based between New York and Glasgow since Freddie was 18 months old. She admits she likes being in the Big Apple because of the friends they’ve made.
“But much as I love Glasgow, I’d be a bit demented if I had to be there the whole time. I’m sticking my head in the sand about it a bit. But if I didn’t have New York in my future, I’d feel very sad. We feel part of our little local community now, and we have friends here. There is a bit of a bromance going on between Dougie and [Boardwalk Empire co-star] Paul sparks. Paul and his wife have a little boy too, so we see them quite a bit. And we have met a lot of friends through Freddie’s nursery.”
Congrats to the couple!
