Harry Potter star Jessie Cave's two-month-old son Tenn has been hospitalised with Covid, the star has confirmed in a moving post on Instagram.
Sharing a picture of her baby son in a cot in hospital, Jessie, 33, wrote: "I watched the news about lockdown from an isolated room in hospital. Poor baby is covid positive. He’s okay and doing well but they are being vigilant and cautious, thankfully.
"This strain is super powerful and contagious so I do hope that people take extra care in the coming weeks. Really didn’t want this to be the start of my families new year. Really didn’t want to be back in a hospital so soon after his traumatic birth."
Jessie went on to praise the NHS staff who helped her son, writing: "Once again I’m in awe of nurses and doctors. It makes me even more proud of my brother, a&e doctor @pondermed and my father, king GP @davidlloyd73 ….
"Please wish baby a speedy recovery. He’s 9llbs 7 now so he’s a stronger and bigger boy than he was when we were last in a hospital room (and the needle went into his hand with louder more powerful screams.) Love and best wishes to everyone #nhsheroes #nhs."
Jessie also shared a picture of baby Teen lying on his front in his hospital cot while surrounded with a number of pillows and blankets.
She was soon inundated with comments from her friends and fans, as many of her showbiz pals rushed to send her their best wishes for baby Tenn.
I'm A Celebrity winner Giovanna Fletcher said: "Oh my goodness! Sending you so much love!!!!", whilst Years & Years singer Olly Alexander simply leaving a heart emoji.
Corrie star Helen Flanagan wrote: "Sorry you’re going through this darling".
Podcaster Elizabeth Day said: "Oh my goodness, Jessie, what a scary thing for you all. Sending so much love and so glad he’s safe."
Jessie, who played Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter franchise, gave birth to her third child on October 21, with the little boy being born just 40 minutes after her waters broke.
The actress announced he had been born safely after a "terrifying" birth, which had seen him be taken into intensive care for urgent treatment.
She wrote: "Slightly extreme but so were his kicks throughout the pregnancy! This has been a very different experience to my first two births… much more humbling, terrifying and out of my control.
"We are currently in the neo natal unit but he’s a strong boy and it’s the safest place for him right now."
She is also mum to Donnie, six, and Margot, four, with her partner Alfie Brown.
