Sienna Miller put the impending birth of her second child to one side on Monday evening as she supported the launch of a new fashion line created by her older sister.
The pregnant actress, 41, was in attendance at central London diner Luci as clothing designer Savannah Miller launched womenswear brand Vivere.
Sienna, who is expecting a baby girl with partner Oli Green, caught the eye in a collarless white shirt and generously cut skirt while posing for photos alongside Savannah, 44.
She completed the look with a tasteful knee-length coat, while her trademark blonde hair was styled with a simple centre-parting.
Savannah’s new brand, interpreted from the Italian word Vivere as to ‘live’, ‘be alive’, ‘last’, ‘endure’ or ‘live through,’ is understood to be ‘affordable, high quality and modern’ with an emphasis on everyday wardrobe pieces.
Younger sister Sienna, already mother to daughter Marlowe, ten, with ex Tom Sturridge, confirmed her second pregnancy in August.
The actress previously admitted to freezing her eggs after turning 40 because she feared the prospect of having no more children.
She told ELLE: ‘Biology is incredibly cruel on women in that decade – that’s the headline, or it certainly was for me.
‘Then I got to 40 and I froze some eggs. Having been really focused on the need to have another baby, I’m just like, if it happens, it happens. That kind of existential threat has dissipated.’
Speaking to The Sunday Times Style Magazine in 2019, Sienna told how she hoped to grow her family in the future.
She said: ‘I would love to have more children. I would love it for my daughter as well. I think I would be open to getting married’.
At the time the star was in a relationship with Lucas Zwirner, but they ultimately parted ways the following year.
Sienna previously told how she felt ‘overwhelmed’ and thought she had ‘failed’ the first stages of parenthood after having Marlowe in 2012.
Reflecting on the difficult time, the actress said she was ‘obsessed’ with Marlowe but at the same time was also in ‘absolute hell’ as she ‘didn’t know what she was doing’.
Sienna revealed that she had a ‘traumatic birth’ with her daughter and felt she had ‘failed’ at the time by not being in a ‘blissful little bubble’.
Speaking on This Morning, she said: ‘I remember when I had Marlowe, yes, people would phone and say, “I’m sure you’re in your blissful little bubble” and I was obsessed with my daughter but I was also in absolute hell.
‘Because you lose 24 hours sleep a week overnight, you spend so much time preparing for the birth and then you have to take the baby home and I didn’t know what I was doing.
‘It was intense, I had a traumatic birth, but the whole thing I felt like I failed at something by not being blissful in the first stages of parenthood.’
