Channel 4 actor, Rob Delaney is expecting another baby with his wife Leah. 

In February, the Catastrophe star heartbreakingly confirmed that his two year old son, Henry, had passed away after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. 

However, now he has revealed that his wife is expecting their fourth child, just months after their tragic loss.

Announcing the news in a post to mark the 70th anniversary of the NHS, Rob wrote: “Just had 2 typically wonderful @NHSEnglandLDN midwives visit my pregnant wife & I for a home birth assessment.”

Before praising those who were marching to end cuts to healthcare funding, adding: “Love to all marching for the NHS today.” 

As they read his announcement, fans flocked to congratulate Rob and Leah on their exciting news, with one writing: “A baby! Rob, how wonderful. Congratulations and all best to your family.”

A third chipped in: “Fantastic news about the baby! You and your wife are actual real life superheroes.” 

Rob’s news comes after he announced the tragic news of his son’s passing on Facebook with a lengthy statement just months ago.

He revealed that after being diagnosed in 2016, the little tot’s health deteriorated with persistent vomiting and weight loss.

“He had surgery to remove the tumor and further treatment through the early part of 2017,” he wrote. “Then the cancer returned last autumn and he died in January. My wife and Henry’s older brothers and I are devastated of course.

“Henry was a joy. He was smart, funny, and mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together, particularly after he’d moved home following fifteen months living in hospitals.

“His tumor and surgery left him with significant physical disabilities, but he quickly learned sign language and developed his own method of getting from A to B shuffling on his beautiful little bum. His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound.”

He signed off with: ”If you’d like to help other families in the UK with very sick children, please make a donation to Rainbow Trust or Noah’s Ark in Henry’s name or in the name of someone you love.”
