Gemma Arterton and her husband Rory Keenan are ready to welcome their first baby. Arterton disclosed at the Raindance Film Festival on October 3, 2022, that she is pregnant and was holding her baby bum while walking the red carpet.
The Clash of the Titans star went to the event in a black satin button-down shirt with a high-waisted black skirt that hugged her bump. Gemma and Rory exchanged vows in a private ceremony in September 2019.
In an interview with The Telegraph, she mentioned how she balances her family and career and stated,
“I’m a neurotic person and a worrier anyway, and I think, ‘Oh God, when I have kids am I still going to be able to do all this?’ When we were kids my mom and my grandmother didn’t work, and I think that made them sad. That has influenced me.”
Gemma Arterton’s husband played a role in Peaky Blinders

Keenan recently performed at BAM, New York, and Wyndhams Theatre in the West End in Journey Into Night. He also appeared on Saint Joan and Welcome Home Captain Fox!
