Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz Announce Pregnancy

While Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz might be one of those ultra-discreet Hollywood couples who you might not even know are married, the two became public with a very big announcement: they’re expecting their first child. The two married in 2011 after meeting on the set of horror film Dream House. This week, Weisz told The New York Times, “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.”

Saint Laurent Sets Its Sights on NYC

According to WWD, Saint Laurent will leave its ultra-glamorous show location in Paris and head to New York City on June 6th for a special presentation.

The exact location is TBD – as is the nature of the show – leaving us to wonder if this is a replacement for its Spring/Summer 2019 show (which would typically happen in September) or a standalone event.
