Sienna Miller has broken her silence about her pregnancy but says she is not allowed to talk about it much, as she continues to maintain her privacy amid an ongoing, high-profile inquiry into UK media newsgathering practices.
Miller, 30, debuted her baby bump publicly at the unveiling of fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo's video installation "The Ever Changing Face of Beauty" in New York in on February 14.
"I'm in my second trimester, so I'm I-can-talk-about-it pregnant, even though I'm under strict instructions not to say anything as it would completely defeat the point of everything I've tried to achieve in the last eight years," she told British Vogue magazine in an interview published in its April 2012 issue.
Miller's pregnancy was first reported in January. She has not spoken about the identity of the father. Us Weekly magazine said it is her boyfriend, "Pirate Radio" actor Tom Sturridge. The two declined to comment about the matter or about the status of their relationship.In June 2011, Miller settled a lawsuit with the UK tabloid News of the World, owned by Rupert Murdoch. She had claimed her cell phone were hacked by someone associated with the publication and was reportedly granted $164,500 in damages.
News of the World shut down operations a month later following allegations its journalists hacked into cell phones of scores of people - namely, celebrities and even a teenage murder victim. Prime Minister David Cameron called for an investigation of several UK media outlets.
Miller, a tabloid favorite, is one of several celebrities who has testified about her personal privacy being invaded, joining the likes of "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling and Hugh Grant.
Miller said at a hearing at a London court in November 2011 that she was at one point "relentlessly pursued by about 10 to 15" photographers and journalists "pretty much daily" and that they spit at her and abused her verbally."
