Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker announces pregnancy as she debuts bump on Brit Awards red carpet

Doctor Who actress Jodie Whittaker has announced she is expecting her second child with husband Christian Contreras as she debuted her bump on the red carpet at the Brit Awards.

Taking to the pre-show at the awards ceremony, the 39 year old wowed in an elegant and gorgeous gown by luxury British brand Cimone.

Jodie's bold look saw the actress wow in a high neck cream dress which was heavily embellished with orange and white beads which cascaded down the oversize silhouette.

The stunning ensemble was finished off with some sparkling rings from celebrity-loved brand Lark & Berry and a quirky dice handbag which added a fun element to the outfit.

Doctor Who actress Jodie posed to show off her stunning blossoming baby bump as she walked to red carpet on Tuesday 8 February, revealing she is set to expand her brood.

Jodie and Christian welcomed their first child back in 2015 and, since then, have kept them out of the spotlight.

Until now, the actress has kept her pregnancy hidden and chose the star-studded event to share the exciting baby news.

To make this announcement, of course, she needed a look that will make the moment even more special.

In order to announce her exciting news Jodie's stylist Helen Sykes worked with Creative Director Carli Pearson, who featured on series one of Netflix's Next In Fashion, to create the fabulous outfit.

Perfectly integrating Jodie's pregnancy into the look, Carli said: “We chose orange because it is a powerful and divisive colour, you either love it or hate it – it’s flamboyant, determined, and designed to make a splash – it’s not a colour for a wallflower. This polarising quality is analogous with the theory behind our dynamic ever-changing ‘embroidery’.”

And Helen Sykes explained: “It was important for Jodie to work with a female-led British brand for this event. We have worked with Carli before and love both the aesthetic and sculptural nature of her collections. I think there is a clear correlation between Jodie’s assertiveness and the inherent strength of Carli’s designs.”

The amazing gown was created using structured boned-cotton which was then contrasted with soft and sophisticated silk-organza which were all end-of-life fabrics to make it sustainable.

Giving a nod to her Doctor Who character, inside the voluminous sleeves are repurposed polystyrene balls that stick and climb across the fabric, therefore appearing to defy gravity.
