Eddie Redmayne preparing for baby

EDDIE Redmayne has started preparing for the arrival of his first child.

The 'Danish Girl' actor's wife Hannah Bagshawe is due to give birth later this year and the couple are already trying to get organised.

He said: "It's quite a few months away, but we started looking at all the logistics.

"The list of things you're meant to get before going to the hospital, and it's a long list of stuff right there!"

Though the 34-year-old star has a plan for the kind of toys he wants for his child he admits he's been advised he'll be more likely to succumb to entertaining his offspring with gadgets.

He added to E! News: "We have this sort of dream of like wooden toys, and all that, and everyone's like, 'Yeah you always start off like that, but you end up with like iPhones!' "

One thing Eddie won't have to buy for his child in the future is a set of J.K. Rowling's 'Harry Potter' books because the author gave him a special gift while working on spin-off film 'Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them'.

He told USA Today newspaper: "Do you know what? When we started filming, I was given an edition and she had written in the front of it, so that was quite an amazing thing."

Eddie flew straight to the US for last night's (30.01.16) Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards after finishing shooting on the 'Fantastic Beasts' film and is expecting to feel "quite sad" when it sinks in that the project has wrapped.

He said: "We finished on Friday. I'm done!

"Because we literally finished shooting and I got straight on a plane over here, I haven't quite worked out how I feel.

"But I had the most amazing time doing it, so I think after this frenzy finishes, it's going to be quite sad, really."
