Natalie Dormer has revealed she gave birth to a baby girl during lockdown, following a secret pregnancy.

The 39 year old and her actor partner David Oakes, 37, welcomed their first child together in January, but only told family and close friends that they were expecting.

Game of Thrones star Natalie, who does not use social media — no doubt making it easier for her to hide her pregnancy, and David met in 2019 when they both starred in the West End play Venus in Fur.

She announced the happy news as she spoke to Esther Rantzen on her podcast That's After Life, produced by Captive Minds.
