British celebrity couple Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig have revealed that they are expecting their first child.

Weisz, 48, slipped in the surprise announcement on her pregnancy in an interview with The New York Times on Friday (April 20) when she was asked about her "glowing complexion".

"I'll be showing soon," she told the newspaper. "Daniel and I are so happy. We're going to have a little human. We can't wait to meet him or her. It's all such a mystery."

During the interview, where she spoke about her latest film Disobedience, she also reportedly lifted the loose sweater she was wearing slightly to reveal her secret.
