Tuppence Middleton is pregnant as she debuts her baby at Downton Abbey premiere
Downton Abbey star Tuppence Middleton is pregnant with her first child and made her debut at the film’s premiere.
The actress, 35, looked glamorous as she attended the premiere of Downton Abbey: A New Era at Cineworld in Leicester Square on Monday night.
Tuppence, who plays Lucy Branson in the franchise, smiled for the camera as she placed a hand on her blossoming baby bump.
The screen star wore a long black off-the-shoulder dress with a thigh-high slit on the left leg.
Her sleeves were dazzling with sequins. She also had her brown hair in loose waves.
The actress keeps her personal life out of the spotlight and it’s unclear who the father is.
She was previously dating Robert Fry, who is a famous abstract artist.
They reportedly dated for over three years.
After the two broke up in 2019, a friend claimed the couple’s career played a big part in the split.
“It’s very sad, but their careers have taken them in opposite directions,” a friend said at the time.
“They tried to make it work, but in the end they decided to part ways. It was very friendly.”
Tuppence plays Lucy Branson in the 2022 film, which is the sequel to the 2019 film.
