Billie Piper is set to become a mum again.
A representative for the former Doctor Who actress confirmed the news to ED! on Wednesday morning.
A source told The Mirror she’s delighted to be expecting with her boyfriend, Tribes frontman Johnny Lloyd.
“Billie and Johnny are delighted. They can’t wait to welcome the new addition to their family,” the source said.
Billie already has two sons, Winston, nine, and Eugene, six, from her marriage to actor Laurence Fox, who she separated from in 2016.
The star of the stage and screen has previously admitted she’d love to have a big family.
“In my dream world I’d have loads. I was one of four and it’s taxing for both parents and kids. I do like the idea of chaos,” she said.
In February she said she was in a “good place” having found love again with Johnny, who she has been in a relationship with for around two years.
Now they can’t wait to be parents together.
The child popstar has previously spoken of how she loves being a mum, even though it is challenging.
“I’m endlessly surprised by how brilliant and beautiful it can be but also by how tough it can be at times,” she told the Telegraph.
Ironically, the Secret Diary Of A Call Girl star has recently been gaining acclaim playing a woman who can’t conceive.
Billie has played the starring role in Yerma in London and Broadway and has picked up numerous awards for her moving portrayal of a woman in meltdown over numerous failed rounds of IVF.
The 35-year-old admitted to the Belfast Telegraph that she would hate to be in the same position as her character.
“Having had children myself, knowing what it feels like, the thought of not being able to have that is just traumatic. I know it would make me unbelievably depressed, and angry and so jealous,” she said.

Billie is expanding her brood at the same time as her first husband, Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans.
The pair were married in 2001 when she was 18 and he was 34, then divorced in 2007.
Now Chris, with whom she remains good friends, is expecting twins with his wife Natasha. They already have two sons.
