Marion Cotillard Responds to Brad Pitt Rumors, Confirms Pregnancy

Marion Cotillard Is Reportedly Pregnant, But Is Brad Pitt the Father?
Marion Cotillard, the woman accused of having affair with Brad Pitt, is pregnant with her second child

Marion Cotillard is only going to say this once — she is not the cause of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s split.

Cotillard shut down the rumors she is the reason they are getting a divorce and confirmed she is indeed pregnant with her second child with French actor Guilliame Canet.

Jolie filed for divorce on Tuesday (Sept. 20), citing irreconcilable differences, but reports surfaced that Jolie hired a private detective and found out Pitt was having an affair with Cotillard while they were making their WWII spy drama Allied.

With one simple Instagram post, however, Cotillard stopped the gossip.

On Wednesday (Sept. 21, 2016), the actress posted a pic of a bird flying over a starry canvas and wrote: “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.”

She continued, “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” and then quipped, “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.”

Cotillard concluded, “Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment.” Read the whole statement below (both in English and French).

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.

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’affectent 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
