Felicity Jones struggled with having a baby while the most strict lockdown guidelines were in place, admitting it was a ‘scary’ experience.

The 37-year-old actress and her husband Charles Guard welcomed their son into the world in April 2020 and she says it was a ‘very heightened experience’ going through such a major life event at a time when the coronavirus pandemic had swept the world and ideas of normality had changed.

She told You magazine: ‘It was a full-on thing to be going through during a pandemic.

‘We didn’t have a clue what was going on, so it was a scary time to be having a baby. Only going out once a day and feeling like your life is threatened ‒ it was a very heightened experience.

‘It’s so much easier now you can do things ‒ “Oh, this is what it’s supposed to be like!” Once you’ve gone through that, you feel as though you can go through anything.’

While she’s been acting since she was a teenager, the Last Letter From Your Lover actress doesn’t want her son to follow her into showbusiness.

Admitting she’d like him to be more academic, she said: ‘I’m hoping he’ll go into the sciences.’

Star Wars actress Felicity confirmed her pregnancy at the end 2019, a year after she and Charles tied the knot.

They first started dating after the star split from sculptor beau Ed Fornieles in 2013, after 10 years of dating.

The pair secretly married in 2018, saying their vows in front of A-List pals including Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hanks at the swanky Sudeley Castle in the Cotswolds.

Lifting the lid on their first year of marriage last November, Felicity told Porter magazine: ‘It’s a joy. It’s wonderful to have such stability in a very changeable profession.’
