The premiere of the Downton Abbey movie was full of excitement last night as one of the stars, Allen Leech, revealed some surprising news on the red carpet. Allen’s wife, Jessica Blair Herman, was showing off her growing baby bump to announce that the couple is expecting their first child together!

Jessica wore a gorgeous gold sparkly dress to the premiere and held her sweet baby bump as she walked alongside her husband.

Allen and Jessica, most notably known for her role as Kim Goldman in American Crime Story, began dating in 2016. Two years later in 2018, Allen revealed on Valentine’s Day that he and Jessica were engaged. He wrote of his new fiance, “Thank you for saying yes and for making me the happiest.”

Less than a year later, Allen and Jessica were wed on January 5 at Alisal Ranch and Resort in California’s Santa Ynez Valley. Of the wedding, Jessica said, “There was magic in the air and rain in the sky and we were the happiest we have ever been.”
