Evan Rachel Wood, Jamie Bell Expecting A Baby

Actors Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell will soon be parents.

Wood's publicist says the 25-year-old actress and her husband, Billy Elliot star Bell, are expecting their first child later this year. The couple are said to be "thrilled".

Married since October, the couple first dated in 2005 but broke up the following year.

Wood's breakout role came in 2003's gritty film Thirteen about two troubled girls. In 2011, she co-starred with Kate Winslet in the HBO mini-series Mildred Pierce. Both roles earned Wood Golden Globe nominations.

She also gained fame for her on-again-off-again relationship with Goth rocker Marilyn Manson, from whom she split for good in 2011.

Bell, 26, is best known for his starring role in 2000's Billy Elliott. His other film credits include King Kong and The Adventures of Tintin.
