Emily Atack announces she's pregnant with first child

She shared the good news with her fans on Instagram

Emily Atack has surprised fans by announcing she is pregnant with her first child.

The 34-year-old star took to Instagram to share the exciting news with her fans, admitting that she’s ‘utterly terrified’ and ‘so happy’.

Although she didn’t name who the baby’s dad is in her post, Atack has been in a relationship with scientist Dr Alistair Garner for at least a few months, having been photographed together back in September.

The pair haven’t been public with their relationship, but a source told The Sun that the couple are busy setting up a home together in preparation for their new arrival, who is reportedly due in April 2024.

Her pregnancy news was the first update Atack has shared in several months after taking a break from social media.

In the Instagram post, The Inbetweeners actor shared a black and white snap of herself lying in bed with her growing bump proudly on display and wrote: “Hello Everyone, it’s been a little while but I’m back with some news. I’m delighted to share with you all that we’re having a baby!!

“I’ve never been so happy and utterly terrified at the same time. Please go easy on me.”

She continued: “Every day is mixed with thrill, fear, joy, hysteria, topped off with a lot of vomiting - a bit like when you’ve just stepped off of the Oblivion at Alton Towers on a hangover.

“I’ve got to know my body on such an insane level. It’s made me appreciate the one I’ve been given SO much, I’m doing my absolute best to make it a home for the little squid I’m growing.

“We can already sense the baby is reclined on a mattress of peanut butter and jam sandwiches in there, demanding more chocolate buttons.

The star has said she's 'so happy' but 'utterly terrified'.

“I’m so happy to be writing all of this to you all. You’ve always stuck by me through the years, do stick around to watch me enter my mum era. Christ. Let’s go."

After announcing her pregnancy, the comedian’s fans and fellow celebs flew to the comments to give the mum-to-be their congratulations.

Presenter and loveable TV personality Rylan Clark wrote: “Babe we said we wasn’t gonna say anything until Jan.

“Congrats u lovely two xxx”.

Chattyman’s Alan Carr commented: “Congratulations - how wonderful.”

Fellow I’m A Celeb star Vicky Pattison wrote: “Congratulations gorgeous girl.”

And Denise Welch wrote: “Omg!!! Amazing!! Your mum must be beside herself!!!!”

Congratulations, Emily!
