Broadchurch's Olivia Colman is pregnant

Popular British actress and husband Ed Sinclair announced her pregnancy

She’s currently on our TV screens in gripping drama Broadchurch, for which Olivia Colman won a BAFTA award last year. And now she will be facing another leading role as mum again, as she announced she is pregnant with her third child. 

Olivia, who has two sons with husband and novelist Ed – nine-year-old Finn and seven-year-old Hall – told the Daily Mirror “We’re all very excited”. 

She also admitted she has a craving for Smarties. 

“I’m very fortunate that work and family are thriving at the same time. I feel very, very lucky,” she said. 

Olivia has been a favourite on British screens for several years, starring in The Peep Show and Hot Fuzz, and your little ones might recognise her voice from Thomas & Friends, for which she voices Marion in several episodes.   

Congratulations to Olivia and Ed!
