Marion Cotillard's Pregnancy Reveal Puts Brangelina Gossipmongers in Their Place

Pregnancy announcements are supposed to be fun and exciting. After all, you're bringing life into this world -- it's a thrilling time! And yet, Marion Cotillard's Instagram announcement that she's expecting focuses more on denouncing rumors she's having an affair with Brad Pitt than it does on her actual pregnancy, which is a shame. Because in this society, we'd rather focus on the "juicy details" of what dismantled a family than actually see one succeed.

Most people have no idea Marion Cotillard even uses Instagram. That's because the French actress is private about her personal life -- including her relationship with her longtime love, Guillaume Canet, and their 5-year-old son, Marcel.

Needless to say, Marion's baby announcement on Instagram was a complete shock to so many. It's heartfelt, honest, and will make you sad this expectant mom has to deal with so much nonsense during one of the happiest times of her life.

This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn't distressing. And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery. Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j'aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d'absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j'aime, je me dois de m'exprimer. Pour commencer, j'ai rencontré il y a quelques années l'homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd'hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j'ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d'inventions aberrantes ne m'affecte en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la "presse", à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement... un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j'ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion

As Cotillard says:

I can only hope Marion's Instagram post will inspire our society to take pause and focus on bigger issues at hand. Marion, along with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, all have families who are being dragged into this tumultuous scandal.

More from CafeMom: 

And rather than feed the beast of Hollywood gossip, we should respect their privacy.

I can only imagine the amount of stress Marion is facing, and truly pray it does not negatively affect her pregnancy. Heaven knows expectant moms -- and their bodies -- experience so many ups and downs as is.

Congratulations on your baby news, Marion. Here's to a journey full of love, laughter, and less drama.
