Jessica Marais confirms pregnancy

Speaking through her management today, Jessica Marais has confirmed that she and fiancé James Stewart are expecting their first child.

“James Stewart and Jessica Marais announce they are expecting their first child,” the statement from her management said.

“The couple are excited and looking forward to this next phase of their lives.”

The pair, who met on Packed to the Rafters where they played onscreen lovers, have been the subject of pregnancy rumours for the past few days.

The logie award winning actress, who left the Aussie TV show in 2010 to concentrate on a career in the US, has recently been working on American series Magic City, which is being filmed in Miami.

The pair who say they are in no hurry to get married spoke openly about having children in an interview with Seven’s Sunday Night.

“Jimmy can’t wait,” Marias said in the interview.

“We need to have at least a couple of boys; if we have a girl that looks like you, they’re going to have to have brothers,” Stewart said.

The pair are yet to comment on whether Los Angeles based Marais will relocate to Australia for the birth.
