Harry Potter actress Jessie Cave hospitalised with Covid during pregnancy

Jessie is currently in her third trimester.

Actress Jessie Cave has been hospitalised after contracting Covid-19.

The Harry Potter star is known for playing the role of Lavender Brown – Hogwarts student and ex-girlfriend of Ron Weasley. She is currently pregnant with her fourth child.

Taking to Instagram, the 34-year-old shared a photo of herself in the hospital, with a piece of medical equipment wrapped around her stomach, and updated fans on her situation.

“Triage, once again…Anyone else had covid in 3rd trimester & had it hit them like a tonne of bricks for weeks?”

She then asked for advice on her Instagram Story, writing: “Also – Has anyone taken the anti-nausea drug and it made them feel worse?”

Not long after, she followed up with an image captioned: “Thank you for the info about nausea drugs… I will NOT be taking them as too scared of feeling worse.”

Friends and fans rushed to the comments to wish Jessie the best.

Former Harry Potter co-star Devon Murray said: “Jessie, I’m so sorry you’re going through this now, hoping for a speedy recovery.”

“Oh honey. I’m so sorry. Like your body hasn’t got enough to deal with. Sending you lots of love lovely,” comedian Felicity Ward added.

“Oh Jessie I’m so sorry, this is rotten,” said TV presenter Sara Pascoe.

Jessie and husband Alfie Brown are also parents to four-year-old Margot and seven-year-old Donnie.

In October 2020, the couple welcome a baby boy named Abraham Benjamin.

After a difficult birth, little Abraham was then hospitalised before being treated for coronavirus.

Two days later, the actress confirmed he had been sent home as she shared a series of images from Abraham’s stay in hospital.

At the time she reassured fans he was “okay and doing well” after having been very sick with a “powerful and contagious” strain of the virus.
