Harper’s Bazaar UK / Betina du Toit Alicia Vikander Confirms She's Welcomed a Baby as She Reflects on Being a Mom "I now have a whole new understanding of life in general," she said. "That's pretty beautiful, and obviously will give a lot to any of my work in the future." At the time, the actress was promoting her new emotional film, Blue Bayou, in which she plays an expectant mother opposite writer/director Justin Chon (Gook, Twilight). Asked to sum up exactly how much life has changed after having a baby, Vikander said she's keeping the finer details to herself, but doing her best to live in the moment with each new milestone. "No, I think I'll wait with that one," she said. "I'm enjoying finding it out in the moment right now, more than anything." Fassbender and Vikander celebrated their third anniversary in October after getting married in Ibiza in October 2017. The actors met in 2014 on the set of their film The Light Between Oceans, in which they played on-screen husband and wife. The May issue of Harper's Bazaar UK is on sale beginning Thursday.
