The engaged couple have been together for ten years.

It was not public that they were expecting a child as the couple keep their private lives off social media. Hannah has not posted on her Instagram since January 2022 and Joe hasn’t shared an update since 2021.

Kara was a guest on the Mum’s The Word podcast which is hosted by Ashley James.

She said: “My sister’s just had her first.

“What’s funny is that on Joe’s side there’s only boys, even during the scan they accidentally said ‘he’ at one point, so they’d gone along thinking it’s a boy.

“So they hadn’t even decided on a girl’s name, they left it as a surprise.”

The new parents are both well known actors outside of the Inbetweeners franchise.
