Eddie Redmayne to be a daddy

British actor Eddie Redmayne has announced he is to become a daddy for the first time


Redmayne and his wife Hannah Bagshawe confirmed pregnancy reports when she debuted her growing baby bump on the Golden Globes’ red carpet on Sunday. 

The pair married in a romantic winter wonderland ceremony in December 2014. 

Speaking with TV personality Ryan Seacrest on E! Live From the Red Carpet prior to the ceremony, the host commented on how eventful the past 12 months have been for the Redmaynes. 

Hannah concurred: “It’s been unbelievable. So much has happened we can’t even compute.” 

Ryan asked if a baby was indeed on the way, to which Eddie said: “That is true!” 

The baby, due in March, will be the first child for the Oscar winning actor and 33-year-old Hannah. 

So what will they call baby Redmayne? 

This year’s list of best and worst celebrity baby names have been revealed and it seems parents are leaning towards the more conventional. 

A study by BabyCenter involving more than 1,100 parents has found names that sounded like real people, like Charlotte Elizabeth Diana or Atticus James are in. 

Linda Murray,editor-in-chief, said: “A little quirkiness is okay but when celebrities choose truly unique names that break new ground, mums give them the thumbs down.” 

Names like Jagger Snow and Elsie Otter made it on the ‘worst’ list.  

Saint West, the name chosen by Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West for the latest addition to their family, was found to be the least popular name among those surveyed. 

Here are the best and worst celebrity baby names, according to mums:
