Rowan already has two grown-up children, Ben, 23, and daughter Lily, 21, from his marriage to Sunetra Sastry, and a new baby would be his third.

Actress Louise has been pictured with a sizeable baby bump during a shopping trip in north London and the couple are said to be delighted to be expecting.

A source told the Sunday People: "Rowan and Louise are over the moon and can't wait for their new arrival.

"It's a very happy time for them both."

Reports suggest the new addition to the family is due in the new year.

Atkinson and Ford, who plays Kate Middleton in hit Channel 4 show The Windsors, started dating back in 2014 - after the comedian's 25-year marriage to Sastry crumbled.

The couple met in 2012 while they acted together in West End comedy Quatermaine's Terms.

As well as her role in The Windsors, Ford has also been seen in another Channel 4 comedy drama, Crashing, as Jane in the film Fast Girls.

Atkinson split from Sastry in 2014 and she filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.

The marriage breakdown came as the couple were building a luxury $18.94 million home in Oxfordshire together.

He later moved Ford into his $8 million cottage in north London.

The Sun revealed at the time that Sastry was not happy to discover her ex was dating someone 28 years younger than him.

A source said: "Sunetra was deeply upset to be replaced by such a younger woman."
