Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford’s relationship
Mulligan and Marcus Mumford first met when she was 12 years old, according to Vogue. While the couple has kept their relationship discreet, the 35-year-old artist stated they met at a Christian youth camp and later became pen buddies.
Mumford remarked in an interview with GQ Magazine:
“There’s a picture of us from our first summer together, and I had bleached blond hair.”
They lost contact, but Carey Mulligan confessed to The Telegraph (via Bustle) that she kept those letters dear to her heart.
“Holding a love letter from someone, knowing you may retain it for the rest of your life, that’s a beautiful thing.”
According to the Daily Mail, the two reconciled in February 2011 during a Mumford & Sons performance in Nashville. At the time, a source revealed:
“She sat in the front row, and when Marcus sang, he gazed down at Carey, who flushed. It was obvious that they had chemistry.”
The event occurred only a few months after the actress’s breakup with her boyfriend, Shia LaBeouf. Mulligan was subsequently seen attending the group’s performance at St. Magnus Cathedral in the United Kingdom, where they were allegedly photographed kissing and embracing in public.
According to a source from People Magazine:
“They were obviously extremely fond of one another. They were very fond of one another.”
Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford got engaged in August 2011, according to US Weekly. Mulligan traveled to the UK from New York four months ago to live with the musician. Mulligan and Mumford married on April 21, 2012, in a private ceremony on a farm in Somerset, England, with around 200 people in attendance, including Hollywood stars Sienna Miller, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Colin Firth. It was announced in 2015 that the couple was expecting their first child together. They had their daughter, Evelyn Grace, in September of that year, but did not divulge much information about her.
Mulligan was photographed wearing a loose black shirt in public in June 2017, prompting speculation that she was expecting her second child. Wilfred, their son, was born two months later. Although the couple prefers to keep their relationship private, they have made a few red carpet-appearances throughout the years.
