Gavin And Stacey Star Welcomes Baby Sharing Unusual Name

Gavin And Stacey Star Welcomes Baby Sharing Unusual Name


Congratulations are in order for Joanna Page, who has revealed she’s welcomed her fourth child.

The 44-year-old, best known for playing Stacey in classic sitcom Gavin and Stacey, posted a tender snap of her nuzzling her newborn in front of Christmas lights and tinsel.

While she did not reveal when her little one was born, she did tell her 109,000 followers the fairly unusual name for her daughter.

“Welcome to our family Boe Willow Russell. We love you with all our hearts,” Joanna wrote.

Famous pals of the actor were also quick to congratulate Joanna on her new arrival.

Emmerdale actor Charley Webb wrote: “The loveliest news and the loveliest name,” while EastEnders star Tamsin Outhwaite added: “Congratulations, how beautiful. Love to you all.”

Presenter Dermot O’Leary said: “The best news! Congrats!” while Loose Women star Kate Thornton wrote: “Congratulations- sending nothing but love.”

Joanna previously described the news she was expecting Boe as a “surprise”, explaining on The One Show: “'I'm still in shock I think! Number four I mean well, I said to my husband we're not going to have any retirement, it's sort of going to be children to death.

“It’s going to be a busy Christmas.”

Joanna is already mum to eight-year-old Eva, six-year-old Kit, and five-year-old Noah, who she shares with husband James Thornton.

Joanna has also revealed whether we’ll be seeing any more Gavin and Stacey, after the smash hit 2019 reunion show which ended on a tense cliffhanger.

“I don't know, I mean I genuinely didn't know we were going to do a special until they phoned, so I have absolutely no idea and I never ever ask them,” she said, when asked whether there could be a follow up.

“So I suppose I'll just one day get a phone call or we'll never do it again.”
