    Congratulations to James and Anne-Marie! "Children are a treasure from the Lord" [Psalm 127:3]. I hope this link works… πŸ˜‰ http://www.dayspring.com/ecards/subcat.asp?CategoryID=2&SubCategoryID=10&CardID=400047&Widescreen=False

      Yeah, it works for me. That's so cute!

    • HighQueenofNarnia says:

      Wait- I just noticed something. It says that James McAvoy and Anne-Marie Duff are having a baby. If they're married, why aren't their last names the same?

      • Sammie says:

        Many women don't change their names after marriage; it's not a requirement. In addition, if the lady became known professionally by her maiden name – and Ms. Duff had a lot of work and award nominations prior to marrying (I personally loved "The Way We Live Now"), she will often stick with that name. I've even had schoolteachers who married during the school year but still went by "Miss So-and-so" until the next school year to make it easier for us as students.

    awww! Congrats to them both! I love babies!! I actually didn't know he was married.
    My Mom's expecting a baby boy in late Feb. or early March.

  16. Starlily says:

    *Gasp!* I didn't even know he was married! But that's great, anyway, that he's going to be a dad! Hurray for James!

  17. HighQueenofNarnia says:

    I didn't know that he was married either- in the LWW illustrated companion, he mentions his girlfriend when he is interviewed by Georgie- I wonder if it's the same lady? Anyway, congratulations to the baby! When is he/she due?

  18. HighQueenofNarnia says:

    I forgot to add- God bless them and keep them and make His face shine upon them. May He be gracious to them, lift up His countenance upon them, and give them peace. Numbers 6:25-26. It's a blessing on priests.

  19. Silver the Wanderer says:

    Why did so many of you not know McAvoy was married? IMDB: the wedding date was October 18, 2006… http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0564215/bio. What shocks me is that I didn't realize I knew Anne-Marie, even though I'd seen pics of her before! Aristocrats, The Way We Live Now, Elizabeth: The Virgin Queen… *gasps

    • Starlily says:

      You're right, she was in The Virgin Queen! Wow, she looks different from when she played Elizabeth! Huh, isn't that weird that she married James McAvoy… Not really weird, just a funny coincidence for me.

  29. 220chrisTian says:

    "When asked how he felt about the happy news, McAvoy told reporters: 'Amazing. Psychedelic. Excellent.'" πŸ˜€

    • [ForNarniaAndForAslan] says:

      I know, right? Awesome! I love his accent. I think the Scottish accent has to be my all-time fav. Even better than Australian, lol, although I love that too. =)

  33. NarniaWarrior says:

  37. violet sky Raven says:

  38. [ForNarniaAndForAslan] says:

    WOW!! So exciting! As an aunt with a niece and nephew I know what a blessing they can be. Praying God's blessings over the McAvoy/Duff family! ~Numbers 6:24-26~

  39. 220chrisTian says:

    At "The Last Station" premiere last week, somebody asked McAvoy about the baby's gender and he said, "Don't know, don't care." Lol! Well, I hope they have a girl. πŸ™‚

  40. Peepicheep says:

    Congratulations, *sniff* wow he growing up. God bless you both and again Congratulations.

  41. ChristProclamer says:

    Congratulations, James and Anne-Marie. I will be praying for you and your child and wishing you all the best.
    It would be fun if James comes back for HHB or LB to have the child be an extra or something.

  42. gigi says:

    wow! guys! congrats πŸ™‚

  43. De_De says:

    really cool!!!!!!!!!! wish the best to both of you πŸ˜€

  44. Jill Pole says:

    He would be an awesome dad! I love people who talk in Scottish accents! Ohh! I hope its a girl!

  45. 8111415 says:

    WOW!!!!!! That is soo coooooooool! Kudos to them both!

  46. Mo Elin Yates says:

    That is fantastic news! Congrats to them both! God bless!

  47. narnian4life says:

    OK I think you mean is a dad… life begins in the womb not at birth… still I'm extremely excited. I think that is awesome. Most modern actors have sex before marriage so an actor who is having a family after marriage is fantastic!

  48. Kay says:

    So happy for both of them. I was hoping these would happen soon because of her age, but my sister-in-law and mother-in-law had children in their early 40's with no problems. It just seemed like their working schedules could have been a problem. God Bless both of them and their child. I just love babies they really let you see the wonder of life through new eyes. so beautiful to see 2 become 1.
