Dee debuted her baby bump for the first time at the British Academy Film Awards 2020 Nominees’ Party in February.    

Since then, the private couple have shared rare glimpses of Dee’s pregnancy during lockdown.

In April, the Norwegian producer and director showcased her growing baby bump as she revealed she had to do Dermot’s hair and make-up for the One World Together highlights show. 

Dee joked: ‘No pressure… had to do @radioleary hair & make up for tonight’s @bbcone @glblctzn live show… (7.15pm).

‘Apologies in advance if he looks orange on the show There’s only so much @sarahexley1 could teach me on a Zoom tutorial…’

Dermot tied the knot with Dee in 2012 after ten years together at St Mary’s Church in Chiddingstone, Kent.

It proved to be a star-studded occasion with guests including Holly Willoughby, James Corden and Bear Grylls. 

In 2015 Dermot hinted that he was ready to start a family with wife Dee, telling Fabulous Magazine: ‘I definitely want kids, but I’ve got a very busy wife with a very busy life.

‘It’s not fair for me to say, ”I want kids now”. I do want kids with my wife, but I want them when we both think it’s the right thing to happen.’   

Late last year ahead of his seventh wedding anniversary, Dermot also spoke about the secret to his happy relationship, telling Fabulous: ‘It’s a work in progress, isn’t it? 

‘The key for me is giving each other space, not giving each other a hard time and actually having fun together. And we do.’ 

Dermot and Dee met in 2002 when they worked for the same TV production company, and got engaged in New York in December 2011.
