The ‘Queen & Slim’ star is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with her husband Joshua Jackson, and the 41-year-old actor has revealed they won’t have to wait much longer until their tot’s arrival, as she’s expected in early April.
Speaking during an appearance on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ on Wednesday (25.03.20), Joshua said: “We are in the very, very home stretch. Everybody tells us that the first baby’s late so we’re probably 10ish days away.
“[Jodie is] physically fine and the baby is physically fine so the important things are all good. We’re just figuring out how to deal with interacting with doctors and hospitals right now.”
The ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ actor appeared on the show via video link as he is currently self-isolating at home amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and explained he and Jodie, 33, are keeping themselves occupied by playing board games.
He added: “We’re just trying to figure out on a moment to moment basis how to get through this with our sanity. We’re in the board game stage now. We did a lot, a lot, a lot of binge watching last week, so now … we’ve moved our way through Monopoly. Now it’s actually Jenga. Jenga’s the thing! Jenga’s great. It really brings out some ugliness in people.”
Meanwhile, Jodie recently gushed over her romance with 'Dawson's Creek' alum Joshua, as she said she felt "ready" for a baby after realizing she'd found "the right person" for her to spend the rest of her life with.
Responding to a fan on Twitter who asked her how she knew she was ready for a child, the pregnant actress wrote: "i don't think you're ever 'ready'... but there were definitely certain boxes i wanted to tick before committing to it. the most important for me: being w/ sum1 i knew would be a great life partner. life has many variables, but once i knew i'd met the right person, i felt unafraid (sic)"
