Natalie Dormer is finally part of the motherhood club. The English actress and beau David Oakes welcomed their baby in secret during isolation in January, adding that her baby girl is her "pride and joy."

Natalie Dormer and David Oakes met on the set of Venus in Fur in 2019 and have dated since July of that year. The pair seem to be doing very well, as the former appears to be over the moon with Oakes after ending her 11-year relationship with director Anthony Byrne.

Dormer spoke happily about the pair's new child, despite keeping her baby's name a secret from the public.

"I'm in love. I'm absolutely in love, she's a joy. Sleep has always been quite important to me, that's the only downside, but you know nature is so clever, the hormones kick in."

Fans know that Dormer's baby is three months old and the love of Natalie's life. They haven't heard much from David, but hopefully, he will put out a statement soon.
