Allen Leech is set to become a father for the first time.

The 'Downton Abbey' star's wife Jessica Blair Herman is five months pregnant with their first child and proudly showed off her burgeoning baby bump on the red carpet for the movie's premiere in London's Leicester Square on Monday (09.09.19).

Speaking to The Sun Online at the star-studded event, Allen said: "She is absolutely blooming. She is five months pregnant today. I'm nervous."

The 38-year-old actor has made no secret of the fact he wanted to become a father and even admitted recently that he'd love to have four children eventually.

He said: "I'd love four [children]. I think the last time I said that to Jess, she said, 'Are they coming out of your womb?'

"So I don't think that's going to happen but we definitely do want a family."

The couple tied the knot at a ranch in California's Santa Ynez Valley in January after three years together, but the ceremony didn't go according to plan as it "peed rain" and the the hired band were unable to play.

But luckily their guests Darren Criss and Lea Michele stepped in instead.

Allen said previously: "We had blankets and heaters around but it was so wet, Jess had to be carried down the aisle by the groomsmen!

"People were drinking hot toddies when Darren started playing 'All You Need Is Love' and everyone joined in."

The couple met at a party in 2016 and the hunky actor instantly fell for Jessica when she fabricated a long history between them.

He recalled: "There was this moment when we were chatting just the two of us, and this guy walked past, really hammered, and said, 'This - this is what I want. How long have you been married?'

"Without missing a beat, Jess replied, 'Six years', and started making up this story.

"I just looked at her, giving this guy marriage advice and thought, 'She's pretty cool.' "
