Rachel Weisz, the Jewish actress who starred in the award-winning Holocaust-themed film “Denial,” is expecting a baby at 48.

Weisz, who is married to James Bond star Daniel Craig, revealed the impending arrival to The New York Times.

She said in an interview published Friday: “I’ll be showing soon. 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.”

This will be the couple’s first child together. They have been married since June 2011.

They each have children from previous relationships, according to the Jewish Chronicle of London. Weisz has an 11-year-old son with director Darren Aronofsky, and Craig has a 25-year-old daughter with his former partner, actress Fiona Loudon.

Weisz’s upcoming film, “The Favourite,” a historical drama set in the court of Queen Anne, is set for release later this year.

Last year, the 2016 film “Denial” won for best British film at the British Academy Film Awards.
