Sienna Miller has revealed she is expecting a baby girl with partner, Oli Green.
The actress, 41, announced the news in a British Vogue interview which sees her displaying her bare bump on the cover and features her daughter Marlowe, 10.
During the interview, Sienna said her first-born, from her relationship with actor Tom Sturridge has been angling for a sibling for some time.
But now the baby is on its way, Sienna has said she has been fighting her own prejudices about being an older mother and has to learn to stop making a joke out of it.
She told the publication: ‘I’d love to get to a point where I didn’t feel the need to make a joke of my being older and having a baby, to show I’m in on the joke.”

As for the divisive two-piece Schiaparelli ensemble she wore at Vogue World in September in London, she said: ‘I was nervous about the idea of it, but once I had it on, everything else felt boring.
‘I was like, I’ll have that photo for the rest of my baby’s life. It’s kind of fascinating to fight your own prejudice against yourself. I’m constantly doing that.’
Sienna detailed the difference in her planned birth plans between her first and second babies.
When pregnant with Marlowe, she said she had her heart set on a ‘natural’ birth, with her sister Savannah (who had delivered several times at home) as her doula.
But instead, she was induced at the hospital and 27 hours of gruelling labour followed.
She said: ‘It was like a horrible trick of the universe. I was like, This can’t be what my sister felt at home in her birthing pool.’
The star was given an emergency C-section, which she called a destabilizing experience. She said: ‘It was so essential in my mind that I got it “right.” And so emblematic of the kind of mother I would be that I didn’t.
But I know in retrospect that was just the demons of new motherhood. This time, she says, “I just don’t think I’ll put that pressure on myself.”
Sienna said she still wants to try for a natural birth, and she’s recently switched to a doctor who is aligned with that viewpoint.
The actress, who was previously in a long-term relationship with Jude Law, 50, confirmed she was expecting her second child during a beach holiday in August.
