Kaya, who played Effy Stonem in Skins and has also starred in movies including The Maze Runner series, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Crawl, announced that she was pregnant with her second child in September.

Posting a mirror selfie of herself in which her bump was visible, she jokingly wrote that she had "tried to set up one of those beautiful pregnancy pictures" but had then realised "that I'm way too tired, achey, and lazy right now".

"So, here's me pulling an awkward face in the mirror whilst wearing makeup for the first time in six months instead," she added. "We are very happy obviously. But mostly super tired."

Kaya and Benjamin, who married in 2015, already share a son, who was born in 2016.
