First came the engagement which was followed by a wedding. And here it comes the pregnancy news. Billie Piper, according to news media, is pregnant with husband Laurence Fox's child.
Rumors of a pregnancy hit Piper after she's been spotted sporting an apparent baby bump while on holiday in Mauritius last week. Neither Piper nor Fox officially confirmed the pregnancy reports just yet, but a source close to the family has revealed to the Sun that Piper indeed is around three months pregnant.
She, still according to the source, shared her pregnancy news with friends and family just before she and Fox headed for their holiday. Expecting their first child together, the couple are said to be "absolutely over the moon. They are stunned as they only wed on New Year's Eve but they can't wait to be parents to their little Fox."
In companion with the good news, a fear also emerged as both Piper and Fox reportedly are worried that her pregnancy would impact her role in the second series of "Secret Diary of a Call Girl," broadcast on ITV, which is set to start filming next month. Producers of the series, in the meantime, have also expressed their fear that Piper's pregnancy might force changes to the script and shooting schedule.
First met in early 2007 while they were performing together in a stage production of Christopher Hampton's "Treats," Piper and Fox tied the knot at the Parish Church of St Mary's in Easebourne, West Sussex on December 31 later that year. The marriage was the second for Piper and the first for Fox.
