Harry Potter star Jessie Cave's 11-week-old baby is in hospital with Covid

Awful news.

Actor and author Jessie Cave, best known for her role as Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter movies, revealed yesterday that her young baby is Covid positive.


Cave posted yesterday from hospital that her son, who is only 11-weeks-old, is currently being treated in hospital for Covid-19.

Cave wrote that she and her son are currently in an isolated room, and that she is so thankful to the amazing doctors and nurses.


"I watched the news about lockdown from an isolated room in hospital. Poor baby is Covid positive. He’s okay and doing well but they are being vigilant and cautious, thankfully.

This strain is super powerful and contagious so I do hope that people take extra care in the coming weeks. Really didn’t want this to be the start of my families new year.

Really didn’t want to be back in a hospital so soon after his traumatic birth.

Once again I’m in awe of nurses and doctors. It makes me even more proud of my brother, a&e doctor @pondermed and my father, king GP @davidlloyd73 .... please wish baby a speedy recovery.

He’s 9llbs 7 now so he’s a stronger and bigger boy than he was when we were last in a hospital room (and the needle went into his hand with louder more powerful screams.) Love and best wishes to everyone #nhsheroes #nhs "

Cave followed up her original hospital post with another photo today of her son watching her tablet in the ward. "If you can’t go to the aquarium bring the aquarium to you, 11 weeks today," she wrote.


The 33-year-old mother of three is known for being candid online about her life as a parent and is an advocate for breastfeeding.

We wish her baby a speedy recovery and hope they will both be able to return home soon.
