Very exciting news for Olivia Colman – the Broadchurch actress has revealed she is pregnant with her third child. Olivia, 41, is already a mum to two little boys, Finn, nine, and Hal, seven, with her husband Ed Sinclair, and said the family are "all very excited" there is a new baby on the way. The British star revealed her pregnancy while explaining why she will be unable to take part in a big-screen remake of her short film The Karman Line, which Spike Lee is directing.

Olivia Colman is expecting her third baby

"I love Spike Lee and would certainly take his call, but he'll have to wait a while before we start anything," she told the Mirror. "I've got quite a few months left to go, so – if he's still interested at the end of the year – we can talk. But it's very flattering that he even suggested it. "Obviously, the baby is my priority and we're all very excited. I'm very fortunate that work and family are thriving at the same time. I feel very, very lucky." Olivia is considered one of the country's most talented actress – but despite winning countless awards and accolades in recent years, prefers to shun the spotlight to spend time with her family.

Olivia and her husband Ed are already proud parents to two little boys

Speaking about her win at last year's BAFTAs, where she won best actress for Broadchurch, Olivia revealed that she and Ed quickly made their excuses and left the star-studded ceremony. "We were in our socks, drinking tea by 10 o'clock," she admitted. "As long as I have Ed and the boys, everything is alright." Olivia and writer Ed first met at Cambridge University in the 1990s, and it was love at first sight. "My husband and I were very lucky," the star has previously said. "We met when we had nothing and we loved each other then. So we were all right. "We were 20 and he was also an actor. If you meet at that age then you're fine. For me it was thunderbolts straight away."
