Marion Cotillard, Guillaume Canet welcome son, Marcel
Marion Cotillard, an Oscar-winning French actress, recently gave birth to her first child, a son named Marcel.
The 35-year-old and boyfriend Guillaume Canet, a French actor and director, welcomed the baby on Thursday, May 19, in Paris, Cotillard's spokesperson confirmed to OnTheRedCarpet.com.
Their son is named after Marcel Cerdan, a boxer who was the great love of Edith Piaf, a singer that Cotillard portrayed in the 2007 film "La Vie en Rose," the actress' agent told French news wire Agence France-Presse. The movie earned Cotillard her first Oscar win and nomination.
The actress and Canet, 38, have been together since 2007 and co-starred in the 2003 movie "Love Me If You Date." She appears in Canet's 2010 film "Little White Lies," which he directed and wrote.
Cotillard also stars in Woody Allen's new film, "Midnight in Paris," which was released in select theaters in the United States on Friday, May 20 and also stars Owen Wilson and real-life couple Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen.
Cotillard is currently shooting the movie "The Dark Night Rises," the third installment in Christopher Nolan's Batman film franchise that sees Christian Bale reprising his role as the superhero. Nolan had directed Cotillard in the 2010 movie "Inception."
In "The Dark Knight Rises," she plays Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member who wants to help Bruce Wayne, Batman's alter-ego. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as John Blake, a Gotham City police officer, while Tom Hardy, also of "Inception," plays villain Bane and Anne Hathaway portrays Selina Kyle, whose alter-ego is Catwoman. The film is set for release on July 20, 2012.
