Update: While Jamie Dornan still hasn't confirmed he has baby on the way to the press, there's certainly no doubt about it now: Just look at his wife Amelia Warner's baby bump! As seen in a photo on Us Weekly, she looks just about ready to pop.
Back in June, Jamie's stepmom confirmed the news to The Belfast Telegraph, and to date, she's the only family member who has spoken about it to reporters — both Jamie and Amelia have remained mum (pun intended) on the subject, especially given his recent buzzy casting in Fifty Shades of Grey. Considering that they wed in April 2013 and their pregnancy was announced in June, we'd have to guess she's due sometime this winter. At least Jamie will have a few months to get through filming and hopefully have a brief break with his newborn before the film comes out on August 1, 2014.
While perhaps the timing isn't perfect, we're so thrilled for the happy couple. Since they likely won't name the baby Christian or Ana, we'll settle for Graham or Emma. R.I.P., Sheriff!
Original story (June 24, 2013):
Jamie Dornan is trading in his sheriff’s badge for a baby bjorn. The Once Upon a Time star (who played dearly departed Sheriff Graham) is going to be a dad, expecting his first child with wife Amelia Warner.
The Belfast Telegraph reports that his family revealed the news today, with Jamie’s stepmom, Dr. Samina Dornan saying that she and her husband Jim are “delighted” that their third grandchild is on the way.
Apparently, pregnancy rumors sparked in Ireland when she was spotted drinking water during the newlyweds’ (they married in April 2013) romantic meal. His stepmom, a consultant in gynecology and obstetrics, confirmed the news to the Telegraph, sharing a heartwarming story. “The early well-being scanning was a beautiful and emotional experience,” Samina revealed. Aww!
Though Jamie is busy with new series The Fall, he recently made time to support local premature baby charity Tinylife, which his dad, Jim, is president of. That reportedly tipped local reporters off, too.
We’re thrilled for the couple, and hope that one of his first gifts for the tiny tot will be a Once Upon a Time book of his or her own. We’re sure Henry would approve of Jamie’s happy ending.
