Emily Atack: I'm pregnant

Comedy star expecting her first child in spring

comedyEmily Atack has announced that she is pregnant with her first child.

The 34-year-old comedy actress – who shot to fame via The Inbetweeners and has her own ITV2 sketch show – announced her news on Instagram.

Posting a black and white image of herself in bed with a baby bump, she wrote: ‘I’ve never been so happy and utterly terrified at the same time.

‘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.

‘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.’

According to The Sun, Atack is dating scientist Alistair Garner, who has a PhD from the University of Manchester. He is a materials scientist and electron microscopist, specialising in nuclear and aerospace applications.

The newspaper reports that their baby is due in April.
