Barbie star Margot Robbie expecting first child with husband Tom Ackerley

The "Barbie" star is expecting her first child with her husband, Tom Ackerley

Congratulations are in order for Margot Robbie. The “Barbie” star is expecting her first child with her husband, Tom Ackerley, sources told People on Sunday.

Robbie revealed her baby bump in a white crop top while taking a boat ride in Lake Como, Italy, with the movie producer, as seen in photos obtained by the Daily Mail. The “Suicide Squad” star completed her maternity look with an oversized blazer and low-rise black pants, accessorizing with a cream purse and gold earrings. Ackerley, dressed in a beige button-down shirt and brown slacks, lovingly helped his pregnant wife onto the boat.

Reps for the couple were not immediately available for comment to Page Six. Robbie and Ackerley, both 34, got married in December 2016 during an intimate ceremony in Byron Bay, Australia. They had been dating for about two years after meeting in 2013 on the set of the war drama “Suite Française.”

The “Wolf of Wall Street” actress told Vogue in May 2016 that her relationship with “the best-looking guy in London” was unexpected. “I was the ultimate single gal. The idea of relationships made me want to vomit,” she said. “And then this crept up on me. We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him.”

Robbie continued, “But I thought, ‘Oh, he would never love me back. Don’t make it weird, Margot. Don’t be stupid and tell him that you like him.’ And then it happened, and I was like, ‘Of course we’re together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.'”

In 2014, the couple co-founded the production company LuckyChap Entertainment, which has produced several movies, including “Barbie,” “I, Tonya,” and “Birds of Prey,” all starring Robbie.

While they are notoriously private about their relationship, Ackerley gave a glimpse into their lives together during an interview with the Times of London last month. He revealed that they spend “24 hours a day” together and do not feel the need to separate business from pleasure. “It’s seamless,” he told the outlet. “We don’t have a toggle on, toggle off. It’s all become one thing.”
