Marion Cotillard is said to be expecting a baby, but could the child be the son or daughter of Brad Pitt?
According to a new report, rumors are swirling regarding the French actress’ alleged pregnancy and due to his recent split from wife Angelina Jolie, many are wondering if the potential baby could belong to the 52-year-old actor.
“Angie couldn’t handle Brad’s sex scenes with [Marion Cotillard]. Her jealousy was out of control. Brad tried for months to reassure her and calm her anxiety, but it simply didn’t work,” a source told X17 Online on September 20.

Ever since Marion Cotillard began filming scenes for the World War II flick, Allied, earlier this year, she and Pitt have been romantically linked. However, at the time, the reports were believed to be fictitious. Just months ago, as divorce rumors swirled, the producer of Allied spoke to People Magazine about Marion Cotillard’s electric chemistry with Brad Pitt and noted that the pair had spent time together off set. Now, with rumors of pregnancy in full swing, Pitt’s divorce from Jolie may be getting far more complicated than anyone had anticipated.
“The interesting detail here is that [Marion Cotillard] is rumored to be expecting a baby, which begs the question… could [Brad Pitt] be the father?” X17 Online continued. “That would be the biggest cheating bombshell of the century, but crazier things have happened, like when he dumped Jennifer Aniston and ran off with Angie!”
According to the report, Jolie has faced insecurity struggles ever since she and Pitt fell in love on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith — while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston — and suggested Marion Cotillard’s baby bombshell could be setting the couple up for a nightmare divorce.
If Marion Cotillard and Brad Pitt do welcome a child together, the baby will be the seventh child for Pitt and the second child for Cotillard.
Along with wife Jolie, Pitt is father to three adopted children, Maddox, 14, Pax, 12, and Zahara, 11, as well as three biological children, 10-year-old Shiloh and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. The couple began dating on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith over a decade ago and tied the knot on August 23, 2014.
As for Marion Cotillard, she shares one son, 5-year-old Marcel, with Guillaume Canet, who was married to actress Diana Kruger from 2001 to 2006.
At present, Marion Cotillard’s relationship status is unknown, but there have been no reports confirming she ever split from Canet. Instead, the pair is said to have been dating for the past nine years and were most recently spotted just last week.

While Page Six claimed on September 20 that Jolie dumped Pitt after a private investigator caught him cheating with Marion Cotillard as they filmed Allied in London, Lainey Gossip suggested that a Pitt-Cotillard affair was not what led to the split of Pitt and Jolie, as Cotillard is still very much involved with Canet. The outlet also shared photos of the couple in France last week with a few friends, which further suggests that the rumors of her affair with her Allied co-star are simply not true.
As Marion Cotillard stays silent regarding the rumors of her potential pregnancy, it seems fairly safe to say that if the actress is, in fact, expecting her second child, Pitt is likely not the baby’s father.
