The couple was only together for three months before the actress got pregnant.
“That’s what happens when you’re in love. You surrender to whatever is to be. [The pregnancy] wasn’t a plan, but if it happened, it happened. We were boyfriend and girlfriend,” she has said.
“I immediately felt Thom was the one, and I’ve never felt that before. This baby isn’t the result of me suddenly becoming broody because I’ve hit my 30s. It’s simply that I have met someone that I’m happy to share that responsibility with."
After just four months of dating, the actress found out she was pregnant.
“[Tom] was fantastic [when I told him I was pregnant]. He was stunned, but he said: ‘Let’s do this! We’re going to be fine, I love you to bits,’ and I knew that everything was going to be OK and this was the right person," she has said.
“I remember getting home and he kissed my face off and held me and I felt amazing. None of our families and friends doubted it either, because they could see how happy we were together. So, yeah, it was a surprise, but a very happy one.”
