Gemma Arterton has confirmed she welcomed her first child in December.

The actress went public with her pregnancy in November, and during an appearance on Zoe Ball‘s Radio 2 Breakfast Show on Wednesday she revealed the happy news of her son’s birth. 

‘We are very very happy, he was born just before Christmas. A little Christmas elf’ Gemma gushed, before revealing on a later appearance on This Morning that her son is seven weeks old.

The baby boy is the first child for Gemma and her actor husband Rory Keenan, who starred in Peaky Blinders.  

The actress, 37, announced her pregnancy by displaying her baby bump at the Raindance Film Festival awards in November.

Zoe told Gemma she was looking fabulous after she arrived for the Breakfast Show in a pink satin mini dress and matching coat and heels.

‘It’s the power of the paintbrush,’ the new mum insisted. 

Later on This Morning the actress admitted ‘a bit more sleep would be nice’ but said she was loving her new role.

‘[He’s] seven weeks, thank you so much!’ she told the show. ‘Totally smitten and love love being a mummy. I just love it. It’s great.’ 

Gemma, the daughter of a welder and a cleaner, grew up on a council estate in Gravesend, Kent and won a scholarship to train at RADA before going on to star in the Bond film Quantum Of Solace as seductive agent Strawberry Fields in 2008

The actress, who tied the knot with Peaky Blinders star Rory in a secret ceremony in 2019 –  said in previous interviews that she was unsure about having children.

‘I don’t think you can ever plan the right, exact time,’ she told The Times in 2013.

‘I don’t feel ready for kids because I want to know that I can come back and still be valuable to the industry.’

‘That’s only going to happen when I feel a little bit more accomplished… or at least when I’ve accomplished something of which I’m proud.’

Gemma shot to fame after she beat 1,500 other hopefuls to the role of Strawberry in Quantum of Solace, who becomes romantically involved with the MI6 agent, played by Daniel Craig. 

She later admitted that aged 21, she took the job to pay off her student loan because she was ‘as poor as a church mouse’, adding that she now sees ‘so much wrong’ with 007 female characters. 

Reflecting on the acting opportunity, she said in an interview with The Sun: ‘At the beginning of my career, I was poor as a church mouse and I was happy just to be able to work and earn a living.  

‘I still get criticism for accepting Quantum Of Solace, but I was 21, I had a student loan, and you, know, it was a Bond film.

‘But as I got older I realised there was so much wrong with Bond women. Strawberry should have just said no, really, and worn flat shoes.’
