Marion Cotillard Is Pregnant & NOT the Reason Those Other Two People Are Getting Divorced

The actress announced her pregnancy on social media while responding to those pesky Brangelina rumors.

Marion Cotillard took to Instagram yesterday to share the news that she is pregnant with her second child. And while normally such an announcement would be cause for celebration, the French actress—who stars with Brad Pitt in the upcoming movie Allied—was forced to bury the lead while revealing her truth, after getting caught up in the rush of rumors surrounding the Brangelina divorce.

"This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into," she wrote in a long caption below a peaceful image of birds taking flight. "I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up."

She then went on to reveal that she is expecting a baby with French actor/director Guillaume Canet, her long-time partner with whom she shares a 5-year-old son.

This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn't distressing. And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery. Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j'aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d'absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j'aime, je me dois de m'exprimer. Pour commencer, j'ai rencontré il y a quelques années l'homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd'hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j'ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d'inventions aberrantes ne m'affecte en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la "presse", à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement... un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j'ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion

So. Much. Class.

It's truly a shame that Cotillard had to announce her pregnancy in the midst of such a firestorm, but the actress has handled the entire debacle with a pretty bada*s display of strength and dignity. That baby's got one awesome mama right there! #Respect
