LONDON, Oct. 7 (UPI) -- Carey Mulligan and husband Marcus Mumford recently welcomed their first child.

Sources confirmed the news to media outlets this week after the 30-year-old English actress returned to the red carpet at the BFI London Film Festival on Wednesday.

"Carey has given birth to a healthy and happy baby," an insider told E! News. "She is just enjoying this time with her family and close friends."

"The baby is healthy," another source told Us Weekly magazine. "They have been loving being parents and their friends and family are thrilled."

Mulligan wore a loose top and skirt with intricate embroidery to promote her new film, Suffragette, at the festival. The movie centers on the British women's suffrage movement of the 1800s and early 1900s, and co-stars Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep.

The actress and Mumford have known each other since childhood, and married in April 2012. Mulligan most recently starred in an adaptation of Far from the Madding Crowd with Matthias Schoenaerts, while Mumford last released Wilder Mind with Mumford & Sons.
