Olivia Colman and her husband Ed Sinclair stepped out together for the first time since announcing that they are expecting their third child. The Broadchurch star and her writer husband attended The National Theatre's Fundraising Gala in London on Wednesday night.

The 41-year-old actress dressed her baby bump in a knee-length olive green dress, which she paired with black pointed heels and a metallic envelope-style clutch bag.

Joining the couple at the event were famous faces including Shameless actress Anne-Marie Duff, Live and Let Die star Jane Seymour and Sherlock's Andrew Scott.

Norwich-born Olivia announced that she was expecting her third baby two weeks ago.

Olivia, who is already a mum to two little boys, Finn, nine, and Hal, seven, 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 is unable to take part in a big-screen remake of her short film The Karman Line, which is being directed by Spike Lee.

"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 already mum to two boys



Olivia and Ed first met at Cambridge University in the 1990s.

"My husband and I were very lucky," Olivia 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."
