Jessie Cave’s two-month-old baby has tested positive for Covid-19.
The Harry Potter star confirmed her son Tenn is in hospital after testing positive for coronavirus, but said that he is ‘doing well’.
The 33-year-old shared a picture of her son lying in a cot in hospital, while she watched Boris Johnson’s address to the nation on a laptop.
Jessie wrote: ‘I watched the news about lockdown from an isolated room in hospital. Poor baby is covid positive. He’s okay and doing well but they are being vigilant and cautious, thankfully.
‘This strain is super powerful and contagious so I do hope that people take extra care in the coming weeks. Really didn’t want this to be the start of my families new year. Really didn’t want to be back in a hospital so soon after his traumatic birth.’
Jessie went on to praise the NHS, writing: ‘Once again I’m in awe of nurses and doctors. It makes me even more proud of my brother, a&e doctor @pondermed and my father, king GP @davidlloyd73 ….
‘please wish baby a speedy recovery. He’s 9llbs 7 now so he’s a stronger and bigger boy than he was when we were last in a hospital room (and the needle went into his hand with louder more powerful screams ?????.) Love and best wishes to everyone ❤️ ? #nhsheroes #nhs.’
Giovanna Fletcher commented: ‘Oh my goodness! Sending you so much love!!!!’, with Olly Alexander leaving a heart emoji.
Helen Flanagan wrote: ‘Sorry you’re going through this darling’, while podcaster Elizabeth Day commented: ‘Oh my goodness, Jessie, what a scary thing for you all. Sending so much love and so glad he’s safe.’
Jessie gave birth to her third child, previously named Abraham, on October 21, with the baby being born early and just 40 minutes after her waters broke.
The baby was rushed into intensive care, with the actress explaining: ‘Our baby boy was born in the early hours yesterday morning just 40 mins after my waters were broken.
‘Slightly extreme but so were his kicks throughout the pregnancy! This has been a very different experience to my first two births… much more humbling, terrifying and out of my control.
‘We are currently in the neo natal unit but he’s a strong boy and it’s the safest place for him right now.’
Jessie is also mum to Donnie, six, and Margot, four, with her partner, comedian Alfie Brown.
