Kwame Ferriera and Lily Cole

Lily and her boyfriend Kwame are expecting their first child


Lily Cole has given us all some lovely news for Monday morning – she's having a baby!

The model-cum-actress-cum-businesswoman took to social media yesterday to announce the news with a picture of a message scribbled on a Post-It note.

This is the first baby for the 27-year-old and her boyfriend Kwame Ferriera, who began dating in 2012 after falling in love whilst working together on Lily's philanthropic website, Impossible. Oh how we love a good old-fashioned office romance.


I am very happy to tell you ...

Taking to her website, (a networking platform which allows people to seek and offer help from each other) Lily wrote:

'The first known impossible baby is being born! I met Kwame when I was in the process of developing Impossible and he offered the most profound gift, to help build the platform.'

'After working together for a long time Kwame and I fell in love, and I am very happy to share our news that we are expecting our first child together.'

It's been a busy few years for Ms Cole: after graduating from Cambridge with a double first in History of Art, Lily has starred in several films and plays as well as starring and finding time to fit in a spot of emvironmental campaigning, too. Not to mention the odd modeliing commitment. Something tells us she'll be taking everything motherhood throws at her in her stride...
