Motherhood transforms what? It alters everything, undeniably “Mulligan told Baby. The Promising Young Woman actress is married to Mumford & Sons musician Marcus Mumford.
After being childhood friends, the pair married in 2012. While Carey and Marcus are upfront about their relationship, their kids aren’t.
Marcus’s social media accounts don’t include photographs of his two children, but his parents do brag about them. Evelyn Grace and Wilfred: the facts.
Evelyn Grace Mumford
Born in September 2015, Evelyn Grace Mumford is the couple’s eldest child and only daughter. Finding a balance between work and home is key for Carey, who said she checks her thoughts about work on set before going home to see her family.
“It can’t be more important than when I have to get home and have to do bathtime,” she told the Daily Mirror.
In an interview with Radio Times, Carey petitioned for on-set childcare, noting she brought Evelyn to set while filming Mudbound and Wildlife. She said it was “incredibly complicated” having to organize childcare at her job.
Wilfred Mumford is their youngest and only son, who was born in August 2017. After having their firstborn, Carey took a two-year break from acting. She told Baby that with Wilfred she did the exact opposite — working at seven months pregnant and returning to set right after giving birth.
“With a second child, you’re a lot less paranoid, and I definitely felt I was ready for new challenges this time around,” she said.
While delivering her Saturday Night Live monologue, which aired earlier this month, the Great Gatsby actor joked her children’s bedtime stories have gotten a lot more dramatic and longer throughout the pandemic. “Lots of recently divorced dragons and unicorns with secret pill habits,” she laughed.
