Suranne Jones announces pregnancy on the red carpet
They kept that quiet! Doctor Foster star Suranne Jones debuted her baby bump at the National Television Awards
Doctor Foster and ex-Coronation Street actress Suranne Jones, 37, is expecting her first child with husband Laurence Akers.
She confirmed the news, pointing to her stomach and saying, “Yeah, I’m pregnant!”
She said: “We have been married nearly a year and a half now and what a wonderful way to kind of move our marriage on. We’re dying to celebrate the new arrival.”
It was a great night overall for the actress, who won the Outstanding Drama Performance award for her role as Doctor Gemma Foster, and the series itself won the New Drama award.
Suranne and Laurence married in a private ceremony in August 2015. Nikon Pro Magazine editor Laurence is ten years her senior and apparently proposed six weeks into their relationship.
