Lily Cole confirms pregnancy

'I am having a baby!'


Lily Cole has announced she is expecting her first child.

The 27-year-old model, actress, philanthropist and environmentalist – who recently founded altruistic social enterprise (a website that facilitates free gifting of skills and favours) – took to Instagram to announce the news and confirm the father is her boyfriend Kwame Ferreira (a tech entrepreneur based in Lisbon):

'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.'


At the ELLE Style Awards last week Olivia Wilde presented Cole with he H&M Conscious Award, recognising Cole's support for humanitarian and environmental causes.


I am very happy to tell you ...
