39-year-old actress Natalie Dormer welcomed her first child, a daughter, with her partner, David Oakes, in January. Dormer shared the news during Tuesday’s episode of the That’s After Life! podcast. Dormer kept her pregnancy private. Dormer and Oakes first met as co-stars in the West End play Venus in Fur in 2017.
Said Dormer: “It’s the perfect thing to do during a pandemic — get pregnant, have a baby. I feel like I’m probably being a bit of a cliché. She’ll probably be sitting in a bar in 30 years time one day going, ‘Yeah, I’m a COVID baby.‘” Dormer said she’s “absolutely in love” with her baby girl, whom she called an “absolute joy.”
Dormer is known for playing Anne Boleyn on The Tudors and Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones. She most recently starred in Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.
