Gavin and Stacey's Joanna Page announces birth of third child


Gavin and Stacey star Joanna Page has welcomed her third child.

The actress, who is also known for her role in heart-warming Christmas film Love Actually, announced her happy news on Twitter on Thursday.

It is the 38-year-old Welsh star's third child with husband James Thornton, also an actor. They are already parents to three-year-old daughter Eva and one-year-old son Kit.

Joanna and James - who has appeared in ITV soap Emmerdale - tied the knot in 2003 and have previously spoken about wanting to have a big family.

She told Wales Online: "James is one of four, so to him, four children is the norm.

"For me, one is the norm, but I can see how people get addicted to having babies.

"I would like to keep going and try to pop out as many as possible - I only wish I'd started having them younger."
