Cave, 34, captioned the snap: “Can’t hide this new baby anymore.”

Congratulations were extended in the comments section from other famous faces including singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, comedian Katherine Ryan and fellow Harry Potter actor David Thewlis.

She already shares three children, sons Donnie, seven, and Tenn, one, and daughter Margot, five, with her partner, comedian Alfie Brown.

He took a humorous approach to sharing the happy news on his own account, posting a sonogram with the caption: “Be easier in future if I just announce when she isn’t pregnant. Enjoy the baby’s foot.”
