Just last week, Cave opened up about her relationship with Brown and their journey to parenthood. Writing for The Times, the actress said that after first meeting at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2012, she and Brown went on a date that resulted in a one night stand and her becoming pregnant with her first child. Cave wrote that "something told me that our one night stand together was unique and beautiful — and deep down, being together one day already felt inevitable to be."


As they awaited the arrival of their first child together, Cave and Brown began to navigate a relationship. Two years later, they welcomed their daughter. Although the couple split when Margot was only a few months old, they reunited after "a couple of years of angst and personal growth."

The exciting news that they are expecting their third child together comes just weeks after Cave's on-screen boyfriend Rupert Grint welcomed his first child, a baby girl, with girlfriend Georgia Groome. Announcing their daughter's birth via a statement from their publicist, the couple asked fans to "respect their privacy at this very special time." They did not reveal their little one's name.
