‘My partner lives in Stockholm’: Pregnant Tuppence Middleton, 35, denies she’s expecting a baby with author Måns Mårlind, 35 after their appearance on the red carpet
She unveiled her blossoming baby bump for the first time at Monday evening’s premiere for Downton Abbey: A New Era.
And whilst Tuppence Middleton, 35, attended the premiere with Swedish director Måns Mårlind, 52 – she has denied she is dating her chosen plus one.
Just last month, Richard Eden revealed in his column for the Daily Mail that Tuppence had a Swedish beau – with fans desperate to find out his identity.

But it seems they are still to be kept waiting, as she seemingly confirmed Måns – who is 17 years her senior – is not the father of her child.
The heavily pregnant actress declined to confirm that he is her partner to Richard Eden this week.
When asked, she simply explained: ‘My partner lives in Stockholm and I travel between [the UK] and there.’

During the evening, an expectant Tuppence proudly cupped her stomach as she wowed in a gorgeous black Valentino dress from the Pre Fall 22 Promenade collection.
While her companion looked suave in a black suit, paired with a matching waistcoat and patterned tie.
It seems their relationship is strictly platonic, as It was revealed last week that Måns and Tuppence are set to join forces on a new project adapted from a Finnish book.

According to literary agent Elina Ahlbäck, the pair have acquired the film and TV rights for the 2000 novel Troll, a Love Story (original title Tammi in Finnish).
Tuppence, who previously starred in Måns’ international series Shadowplay, is set to direct.
Måns told Nordisk Film & TV Fond: ‘We have been looking for something to do together for quite some time now and then suddenly Johanna’s wonderful book came to mind.
Notorious for keeping her private life out of the limelight, the actress was previously in a relationship with figurative painter Robert Fry from 2016 to 2019 – with her relationship history since then remaining unknown.
