Report: Director Sofia Coppola Expecting First Child

Sofia Coppola has a new project in the works — a baby, due this winter, People magazine reported Wednesday on its Web site.

The father is Coppola's boyfriend, Thomas Mars, a singer for the French band Phoenix, the magazine said. The 35-year-old filmmaker won a best screenplay Oscar for 2003's "Lost in Translation," which she also directed.

A call by The Associated Press to Coppola's representative, Robert Garlock, was not immediately returned.

Coppola is the daughter of Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola. She played Mary Corleone in his 1990 movie, "The Godfather: Part III."

Her upcoming film, "Marie Antoinette," stars Kirsten Dunst as the 18th-century French queen. Coppola wrote and directed the movie, which drew wildly mixed reactions at its first press screening at the Cannes Film Festival.

Coppola was married to director Spike Jonze for four years; she filed for divorce in 2003.
