Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford: A pen pal turned into great love

Carey Mulligan and her husband Marcus Mumford met as children. Their pen friendship turned into great love.

In 2012, Hollywood star Carey Mulligan (38) married her current husband Marcus Mumford (37). What few people know: The two stars knew each other as children. The actress now shared this fun fact about her relationship with the frontman of the band Mumford and Sons. She was there via video call to talk about her charity work for the War Child organization.

When asked by presenters Richard Madeley (67) and Kate Garraway (56), Mulligan said that she met Marcus on vacation as a child. Afterwards they wrote each other letters to stay in touch: “We went to the same summer camp as children and then became pen pals. That’s how we stayed in touch, we didn’t have cell phones!” Other technology that was modern at the time was also used: “We used to fax a bit when fax machines were still cool! We have to get the children to make pen pals again. That’s a good thing.”

At some point, however, the pen pal relationship fell asleep. “We had no contact for about ten years before we got back together,” Mulligan told the “GMB” hosts.

Happily married and three children

Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford have been happily married for over ten years. The two got engaged in the summer of 2011 and tied the knot a few months later in April 2012. In 2015, Evelyn (8), their daughter, was born. Son Wilfred (5) followed around two years later.

A spokesman for Mulligan confirmed to the US magazine “People” in January 2023 that the couple was expecting a third child. Mulligan finally announced that she had become a mother for the third time in October last year. She kept her name and gender to herself. The family lives outside London in the countryside.
