Sophie recently looked the picture of health and happiness as she took a stroll in rain-soaked London on February 18, days after announcing her pregnancy.

She cradled her bump while partner Matt held their retriever, Buddy, with one onlooker saying: ‘They were smiling, they were very relaxed in each other’s company and just looked so happy.’

The couple, who met and began their relationship in 2016, were both sporting a gold band each during the morning walk.

They were first pictured wearing ‘wedding rings’ while walking their dog in the park in January, but they are still yet to confirm if they are married.

Soon after their engagement in 2019, Sophie said: ‘The whole wedding thing is weird. Everyone expects you to be desperate to be a princess for the day – that’s not really my scene.’

Sophie had been seriously ill with Covid over the Christmas period.  

Shortly before Christmas, the actress told her 250,000 Instagram followers that she had to go to hospital to be treated for Covid-19.

Sophie penned: ‘Greetings from my sick bed. So for Christmas this year I got myself a juicy bout of Covid-19.

‘I also have a very festive bloodshot eye from all of the hardcore vomiting I was doing in hospital. I can taste nothing, I have a cough to rival a Dickensian workhouse orphan boy.’ 

She also told how she was suffering from a pain from a ‘gnarly’ wisdom tooth, saying it all added up to ‘quite the feast of festive ailments’.

Sophie and Matt, star of BBC period drama The Musketeers and Netflix series Cursed, met on the set of Sky One drama Jamestown.

Since then, Sophie has barely been off our screens, with appearances in Bodyguard, Peaky Blinders, Sky’s Urban Myths and Line Of Duty.

Her last role was alongside Matt in horror film, Rose: A Love Story, which he wrote.

Sophie starred alongside Matt in the claustrophobic horror film, in which they played a couple living in a remote woodland cabin.

And before Covid laid her low, she was spotted filming the second series of Gentlemen Jack in West Yorkshire, alongside Suranne Jones.
