Welsh actress Joanna Page has announced she is expecting her first baby with husband, James Thornton.

Joanna, 34, plays dizzy Stacey in the hit BBC sitcom Gavin & Stacey. Her husband James, 36, is a former Emmerdale actor, who now does regular voice over work.

She announced her pregnancy on Twitter with the message:

"Happy news! James + I are delighted to announce we're expecting a baby! X"

The couple recently sparked speculation that they would soon be hearing the pitter patter of tiny feet, when Joanna told the Telegraph that the 'time is right' for them to be thinking about starting a family.

She also recently stepped out on the red carpet sporting a teeny, tiny bump (and an enormous grin!).

Congratulations Joanna and James!
