Industry whispers are saying that Jennifer Jason Leigh, 46, and her husband, Noah Baumbach, 38 — writer/director of Margot at the Wedding and The Squid and the Whale — are expecting their first child.
Although Jennifer’s rep said she won’t comment on client’s personal lives, screenwriters were overheard at the Independent Spirit Awards discussing Jennifer dropping out of her latest film, Spread, because she is expecting. While no reason as been issued as to the cause of the film dropout, it was confirmed today that Anne Heche will be taking over Jennifer’s role.
Noah and Jennifer have been married for two years.
