Sofia Coppola Expecting Baby Girl

NEW YORK (October 19, 2006) — Sofia Coppola is seven months pregnant with a baby girl, her spokesman, Robert Garlock, confirmed Thursday.

The father is boyfriend, Thomas Mars, the singer for the French rock band Phoenix. People magazine reported the pregnancy in May.

The 35-year-old director was married to director Spike Jonze for four years before filing for divorce in 2003. Coppola, the daughter of Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola, won a best screenplay Academy Award for 2003’s “Lost in Translation,” which she also directed.

Coppola’s latest film, “Marie Antoinette,” opens Friday. It stars Kirsten Dunst as the 18th-century French queen.

Phoenix’s critically acclaimed third studio album was released in May.
