In a candid statement on Instagram, Marion Cotillard has simultaneously announced she is pregnant and slammed rumours of an affair with Brad Pitt – one of the many hypothesised reasons as to why he and Angelina Jolie are divorcing.

The 40-year-old French actress became embroiled in their divorce due to rumours circulating that there was more than just on-screen chemistry going on with her and her Allied co-star, Brad, 52.

However, Marion has squashed all rumours and at the same time confirmed she is pregnant with her second child with her partner Guillaume Canet.

Here is Marion’s statement in full:

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.

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.

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
