Peaky Blinders star Sophie Rundle announces first pregnancy after horror Covid battle
Peaky Blinders actress Sophie Rundle has confirmed her pregnancy.
The gorgeous actress is expecting her first child, and she took to Instagram on Tuesday to share the joyful news with a snap of her blossoming bump.
The 32-year-old star’s exciting announcement comes amid speculation that she has secretly tied the knot with actor Matt Stokoe after the lovebirds were spotted wearing wedding bands last month.
Sophie hinted that her bundle of joy is due in Spring as she told fans her firstborn will be arriving as the daffodils are blooming.
The Peaky Blinders babe looked radiant in the gorgeous snap which saw her proudly show off her growing bump in a black turtle-neck jumper.
“New friend on the way,” she penned.
“Arriving here with the daffodils and the sunnier days of spring. O high riser, my little loaf.”
Sophie’s happy announcement comes after she endured an incredibly tough time over Christmas.
The pregnant star was struck down with Covid-19 and was admitted to the hospital for recovery.
Taking to Instagram at the time, she told her 250,000 followers: “Greetings from my sickbed.
“So, for Christmas this year I got myself a juicy bout of Covid-19.
“I also have a very festive bloodshot eye from all of the hardcore vomiting I was doing in the hospital. I can taste nothing; I have a cough to rival a Dickensian workhouse orphan boy.”
Thankfully, Sophie managed to make a swift recovery as the pregnant actress kept her pregnancy under wraps.
Sophie and long-term love Matt have been together for over six years.
The lovebirds first locked eyes in 2016 after meeting on the set of Sky One drama Jamestown.
