Who Is Daniel Craig’s Wife and How Did They Meet?

Daniel Craig and his wife Rachel Weisz like to keep their private life, well, private. So private that some fans may not even realize the two are married (and have been for quite some time now). If you just found out that Craig and Weisz were married, here’s a few more things that might surprise you.

Craig and Weisz have known each other for a long time. They first met while they were both attending the same university. But at the time they were just friends. Craig married actress Fiona Loudon in 1992 and had a child with her before divorcing in 1994. Weisz began seeing filmmaker Darren Aronofsky in 2001. The couple had a child together in 2006 but went their separate ways in 2010.

A movie brought Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz back together

Weisz says she never thought she would get married, “It was not an ambition of mine. It was the opposite. I couldn’t relate to romantic comedies — marriage seems to be the whole point of them… Then it just happened, happily, at a more mature moment.” Everything changed when Weisz and Craig were reunited to film the movie Dream House.

Craig and Weisz began filming Dream House in 2010. The two played a couple on screen and quickly felt the sparks off-screen. Just six months after filming the movie, the two married in a private ceremony. It seems Weisz just needed to find the right one to be ready for marriage.

Do Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz have children?

In 2018, Weisz revealed the couple was expecting a child. The actress told the New York Times: “I’ll be showing soon. Daniel and I are so happy. We’re going to have a little human. We can’t wait to meet him or her. It’s all such a mystery.” The couple, who each had a child from their previous relationships, welcomed a baby girl in September 2018.

Why Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are so private

Craig and Weisz are known as one of the most private couples in Hollywood. They are rarely seen at public events and don’t like to talk about their relationship. But they have discussed why they don’t like to talk about their relationship.

Weisz says that they don’t talk much about their relationship to protect their marriage: “He’s just too famous. It would be a betrayal. You have to protect your marriage.” She says that her husband is on the same page as her: “Daniel and I are really similar…We’re just really crap at talking about our private lives.”

The actress knows that opening up about her marriage is not something that can be taken back. “It’s worth more than money,” she said. “You can’t buy your privacy back.”

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are incredibly supportive of each other

Weisz says that she and Craig support each other in everything they do. They are fans of each other’s movies and says that Craig was a big fan of her movie Disobedience. But there is one thing that the couple doesn’t talk about – work. Weisz told The Sun: “There is nothing worse than two actors getting together and talking about acting. It’s like the end—it’s the worst.”

Craig is currently working on another James Bond movie, but fans shouldn’t expect him to come back after the current film. He barely came back for the upcoming sixth film under his belt and is ready to say goodbye.

We wouldn’t be surprised if the actor simply needed to get away from a role that he had devoted so much time to and spend more time with his family and a new little one at home.
