In this article, we are going to learn the details of who Dr. Alistair Garner, the boyfriend of Emily Atack, is in the wake of her announcement that she was going to be a mother.
Emily Atack made her first child’s pregnancy public on Saturday, expressing her excitement about being a mother in the coming year.
The 34-year-old actress from Inbetweeners is expecting a child in April 2024.
After splitting from her ex-boyfriend Liam McGough, a tree surgeon and Big Brother star, last year, Emily started dating nuclear scientist Dr. Alistair Garner early this year.
Since then, her publicist has confirmed that the two are dating, and it has been rumored that they have moved in together to get ready for the baby’s arrival.
The 34-year-old actress used an Instagram post featuring a black-and-white photo of herself in bed with a baby bump to reveal her pregnancy.
Alistair Garner must be happy that he will soon be a father.
“I’ve never been so happy and utterly terrified at the same time,” Emily Atack wrote.
“Every day is mixed with thrill, fear, joy, hysteria, topped off with a lot of vomiting – a bit like when you’ve just stepped off of the Oblivion at Alton Towers on a hangover.
“I’ve got to know my body on such an insane level. It’s made me appreciate the one I’ve been given so much, I’m doing my absolute best to make it a home for the little squid I’m growing.
“We can already sense the baby is reclined on a mattress of peanut butter and jam sandwiches in there, demanding more chocolate buttons.”
“I’m so happy to be writing all of this to you all. You’ve always stuck by me through the years – do stick around to watch me enter my mum era,” Emily Atack added.
