It’s time to raise a glass to Margot Robbie and her husband Tom Ackerely. As per reports, the Oscar-nominated Australian actress is pregnant with her first child. Both she and the English producer are yet to comment on the exciting announcement, but multiple publications have confirmed the news after images of the 34-year-old debuting her baby bump while in Italy began to circulate.

Robbie inadvertently broke the news while standing on a jetty to await a speed boat while vacationing in Lake Como. The multi-hyphenate Hollywood star offered us a glimpse of her maternity style in a black blazer, matching slouchy trousers, a billowing white crop top and a raffia variant of Bottega Veneta’s coveted Matthieu Blazy-designed Sardine bag.

Details of how far along Robbie is in her pregnancy, the baby’s due date, gender or name are not confirmed. Nevertheless, this joyous news is worthy of pouring yourself a tipple from Robbie and Ackerly’s shared coastal spirits label, which they both co-founded alongside a few other friends.

Robbie and Ackerly’s love story dates back over a decade after meeting on the set of the World War II romantic drama Suite Française in 2013. Robbie had a minor role off the back of her breakout in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street, while Ackerley worked as an assistant director. The pair soon moved into their infamous shared flat in Clapham together.

Robbie described the actor-turned-producer as “the best-looking guy in London” at the time. She revealed never-before-heard details of their friends-to-lovers relationship in 2016. “I was the ultimate single gal,” she said. “The idea of relationships made me want to vomit. And then this crept up on me.”

“We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him, but I thought, ‘Oh, he would never love me back. Don’t make it weird, Margot. Don’t be stupid and tell him that you like him.’ And then it happened, and I was like, ‘Of course, we’re together.’”

Robbie and Ackerly wed in a private ceremony in Byron Bay in December of 2016. The low-key ceremony took place in the Northern Rivers Hinterland, with the bride seemingly wearing a bohemian style off-the-shoulder wedding dress for her nuptials.

Robbie and Ackerly continued working together and eventually founded the production company LuckyChap Entertainment. Under that banner, the duo helmed Greta Gerwig’s award-winning Barbie and Emerald Fennell’s 2020 Promising Young Woman and 2023 Saltburn.

It’s reported the pair are gearing up to produce film adaptations of the video game Sims and board game Monopoly, but it’s clear their impending arrival will be their next work of art. Congratulations to the doll!
