Eddie and Hannah were married at Babington House in Somerset in December 2014.

The couple confirmed they were expecting when they appeared at the Golden Globes in January.

Eddie later said that the couple had decided not to find out in advance whether they were having a boy or a girl.

Speaking at the Oscars, he told Extra: “It’s gonna be a surprise.

“I’m going to be honest. I was like, ‘Maybe we should find out’ and my wife’s like, ‘We’re not finding out’. She wears the trousers.”

Before Eddie, 34, found international fame in Hollywood he appeared in The Pillars of the Earth (2010), Tess of the D'Urbervilles (2008), and an episode of Doctors in 2003!
