Jessie Cave has shared the news that her three-month-old son Abraham has been hospitalised after contracting coronavirus.
The British actress studied illustration and animation at Kingston University but she’s well-known for her role in the Harry Potter saga as a Gryffindor student in Dumbledore’s army and Ron’s brief girlfriend.
Cave posted an Instagram post where she shared the news with her followers. Her son Abraham was taken into hospital before the Prime Minister announced the country’s third lockdown on Monday.
“Poor baby is Covid positive. He’s okay and doing well but they are being vigilant and cautious,” she wrote in her Instagram post. She then emphasized the importance of taking “extra care in the coming weeks” as the daily number of reported infections on Wednesday rose over 60,000.
“[I] really didn’t want this to be the start of my family’s new year. [I] really didn’t want to be back in a hospital so soon after his traumatic birth,” Cave wrote.
She thanked the NHS by saying “I’m in awe of nurses and doctors,” mentioning her father and brother who both are GP and A&E doctors, fighting against the coronavirus.
Cave has been posting videos through Instagram stories where she shows the hospital room and her son Abraham, who just turned 11 weeks today.
