First it was Mumford & Sons, and soon it will be Mumford & baby!

E! News has learned that Carey Mulligan and her husband Marcus Mumford are expecting their first child together. The Brit beauty is around halfway through her pregnancy. Us was first to break the pregnancy news.

The 29-year-old actress attended yesterday's 2015 Tony Awards and flaunted her growing baby bump in a gorgeous floor-length red gown paired with a gold cuff bracelet. She also attended the 2015 Met Gala last month in a simple and loose-fitting black dress that hid her baby bump.

One thing's for sure: Mulligan's chic maternity style is on point!

Mulligan has been busy the past few months starring in Broadway's Skylight with Bill Nighy.

A source recently told E! News, "She is feeling wonderful. She is really excited to finish her projects up in the next coming months and enjoy some time off to just focus on her and family. Her pregnancy has been going well and she is trying to take it easy in between press with her new film Far from the Madding Crowd and her show on Broadway."

Mulligan's run on Broadway ends next week. And her partner of five years also has quite a full schedule with his band's new album Wilder Mind.

In fact, Mumford & Sons are even headlining a few major music festivals coming up like Reading and Leeds 2015 and Bonnaroo.

Mulligan usually doesn't open up about her personal life but made an exception during a 2014 interview with The Guardian.

When asked how marriage has changed her, she replied, "I think I'm more settled and more secure than I've probably ever been, and more confident and excited about the work choices that I make."

The notoriously private duo tied the knot back in April 2012 in front of around 100 guests—including several famous friends like Colin Firth, Sienna Miller and Jake Gyllenhaal—on a farm in Somerset.

A source at the time told E! News that the couple's special day was an affair they won't soon forget.

"It was a really beautiful wedding," the insider gushed. "The day was attended by their family and friends and was just very special and intimate with some very pretty and quirky touches."

Mulligan opted to wear a long ivory Prada dress paired with pink Wellington boots—perfect for the English countryside—to walk down the aisle.

E! News confirmed that the groom's own father, a vicar, conducted the service, and that the Grammy-winning band sang during the ceremony.

"Carey was beaming," our source added. "She looked radiant and angelic. Everyone who attended was very aware of how special their love story is."

And now, a baby makes three, and we couldn't be happier for the lovely couple!
