British actress Felicity Jones is pregnant with her first baby.

The star, 36, is expecting a child with her husband Charles Guard.

Jones debuted her baby bump at the New York premiere of her latest film The Aeronauts, but the pregnancy was not confirmed until hours later when her representative told People magazine that she was expecting.

Jones and director Guard have been an item since 2015.

In 2017 they announced that they had got engaged and in 2018 they tied the knot at the stunning Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire, England.

Jones previously shared her thoughts on juggling acting with being a mother.

She told Harper’s Bazaar magazine in 2016: “Fortunately, I feel like we're in a new era, where it is empowering rather than limiting to have children.

“From what I can see from friends and relatives, women get stronger and more decisive from having children, they don't waste their time doing things they don't want to."

The actress is best known for the 2014 film The Theory Of Everything, which earned her an Oscar nomination, and is now making waves in The Aeronauts, an 1860s-set drama in which she plays a daredevil pilot.

She recently revealed she thought she had broken her back in a hot air balloon accident while she was making the movie.

Jones told Porter that she and her co-star Eddie Redmayne had a terrifying crash and that she feared she had really hurt herself as she “couldn’t move”.

“Eddie and me were holding hands and hoping for the best as we hit the ground at an incredible velocity,” she said.

“My eye missed the metal corner of this wooden chest, by about five centimetres.

“I was wearing a corset as well, to add insult to injury, and at that moment I thought I might actually have broken my back, as I couldn’t move.”
