Expectant mum Emily Atack tenderly cradled her baby bump during her first red carpet appearance since announcing her pregnancy in December.

The 34-year-old Inbetweeners star looked radiant as she attended Wednesday night's Vanity Fair EE Rising Star Party at the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane.

The TV star dazzled in a long black dress with draped sleeves for the glittering event, where she mingled with fellow celebrities, including Frankie Bridge, comedian Katherine Ryan and actress Kaya Scodelario.

Atack is eagerly anticipating her first child with her partner, Dr Alistair Garner.

Garner, an aerospace and nuclear applications specialist, is the son of her late ‘step-uncle,’ Dr Stephen Garner, who tied the knot with her aunt, Jane Robbins, back in 1994.

A source previously said the pair had "grown close" over the past year and while their romantic relationship was "unexpected", their family was "delighted" for them.

"They make a great couple and everybody is excited for their new arrival," an insider told Mail Online.

Last month, Atack admitted she is feeling "overwhelmed" after revealing her pregnancy and hinted that she has been suffering badly from morning sickness.

Taking to Instagram Stories, she uploaded a picture of her resting a ginger biscuit on her blossoming baby bump, with a mug which read "mummy's mug" within arms reach.

"Overwhelmed with all of your messages of support about our baba," she penned, followed by a red love-heart emoji.

"I’m stuck at home very sick so your kind messages really do cheer me up. So do M&S ginger biscuits, turns out."

The star initially announced her pregnancy in a sweet statement on social media revealing she was filled with "thrill, fear, joy, hysteria, tipped off with a lot of vomiting."

"I’m doing my absolute best to make it a home for the little squid I’m growing."

Addressing her fans, she added: "You’ve always stuck by me through the years, do stick around to watch me enter my mum era. Christ. Let’s go."

Before striking up a romance with Garner, Atack dated Big Brother star Liam McGough until 2022.

She’s also previously been linked to Harry Styles and fellow comedian Seann Walsh.
