Inbetweeners stars Hannah Tointon and Joe Thomas welcome first child together

The pair first met on the Inbetweeners, and have been together for ten years

Inbetweeners stars Joe Thomas and Hannah Tointon have welcomed their first child together.

The couple first met on the Channel 4 sitcom back in 2010 before they made the decision to move in with one another just a couple of years later.

Unlike their on-screen relationship, the pair have been together ever since.

The news of their first child was announced by Hannah’s sister, Kara, the Mirror reports.

Speaking on Ashley James’ Mum’s The Word podcast, former Strictly Come Dancing winner Kara said: “My sister’s just had her first [child].

“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.

“Everyone playing the shape game etc said she’s having a boy, so when they eventually had a boy, it was really brilliant, but it knocked them for six.

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

Joe, who shot to fame as Simon in The Inbetweeners before going on to star in Fresh Meat, proposed to Hannah back in 2017.

The two then appeared alongside each other in the 2018 comedy film, The Festival.

Speaking about working alongside his fiancee during an appearance on Lorrain that same year, the actor said: “I’ve just got used to it, she’s just in everything because my brain is so simple, I was just like ‘Yep, there she is!’

“It went very well, I think.”

He added: “I guess I do try and switch off when I get home, yeah, doing comedy all day, sometimes you just want to be calm and chilled.”
