It was only last month that the star revealed she was pregnant by showing off her baby bump as she headed to the baby shower.

She looked radiant in a flowy blue dress, which she teamed with comfy trainers, while accessorizing with a leopard print headband.

She wrote in the caption: “I’ve always thought pregnancy was an incredibly personal journey.

“I’ve been resisting sharing mine on social media, but with two weeks to go until we meet our little boy, I thought why not.

“Plus some incredibly thoughtful friends decided to throw me a ‘low key’ surprise baby shower that wasn’t low key at all (I’m looking at you @jahjahwalsh @oliwalsh @jasonstraker @jimmyslocum @charlotteelliswatson)

“Just joyous, emotional and completely wonderful in every way.” So here’s to celebrating life and all the good things!’

In 2019 Camilla married Call The Midwife’s Jack quietly after being an item for three years.

The couple kept their union low-key, seemingly tying the knot in October of that year in an under-the-radar ceremony.

The pair met in 2016 when Jack, now 36, was being ‘treated’ by Camilla, who plays Dr Zosia March.

She left the show – with the disappearance of Dr March in the US – but then returned – with a new off-screen husband.

Camilla said casually in conversation that she and Jack had gotten married The sun: “It’s good to be back for a few months. Holby likes it.

“I wanted to try something else. And we got married too. It was a modest ceremony in London, but it was truly wonderful. It was great.’

Jack plays dentist Christopher Dockerill in Call The Midwife and dates Trixie [Helen George] of the series.

Camilla’s Holby character is back pregnant – she was last seen leaving her husband in the UK.

“Viewers won’t know who the father is, but a handsome American doctor also appears. Everyone thinks it’s their child,” the actor added.

Dr. March’s return came after her stint on the show so far dealt with the character’s struggles with bipolar disorder.

In the show, she became a heavy drinker and took drugs – and the storyline explored the stigma attached to the disease and treatment involving lithium. This in turn was praised by charities and mental health organisations.

The actress announced last September that she would be reprising the role – but said it would only be for a limited time as a guest star.

Executive producer Simon Harper said the character is returning due to “popular demand”.
