Jessica Smith, who played the sun baby in Teletubbies, has announced she’s pregnant with her first child and 90's kids can't quite believe it.

The Teletubbies, starring Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po, was originally created by Anne Wood and Andrew Davenport in 1997 and aired on BBC Two.

The show will always be a poignant reminder of youth among British millennials who grew up with the original show’s run from 1997 to 2001.

But like all of us, even the sun baby has to grow up at some stage. Smith shared the news by posting a picture of her scan on Instagram on Tuesday (October 10). In the caption, she wrote: “When two becomes three.”

Smith, who is now in her mid-twenties, made an appearance on ITV show Lorraine in 2017, where she revealed her hopes of pursuing a career teaching dance in primary schools.

A track based on the show’s theme song, titled ‘Teletubbies say Eh-oh!’, reached Number One on the UK Singles Charts in December of the same year. It remained in the top 100 for a total of 41 weeks.

One despondent commenter said: "The Teletubbies sun baby is having her own sun baby (worried emoji)."

Another quipped: "Teletubbie baby. Congratulations! Nursery theme idea (you are my sunshine)".

Another added: “Congratulations! You’re gonna have your own sun baby!!!”

The show returned in 2015 but - sadly - eventually ended in 2018.

This isn't the first time Jess has gone viral in recent years. A recent photo of Jess as an adult found its way to, BBC Radio 1 presenter, Greg James, with the DJ tweeting: "This has made me feel 800 years old".

Back in 2017, Jess opened up to BBC South East about how she landed the gig. Jess said it was just by chance, explaining: "I was being weighed at the hospital.

"My mum took me and it just happened to be the same time that the producer of the old series had come in and wanted the hospital to get in contact with them if they'd seen any smiley babies. It was just a case of sitting in front of a mirror and a camera and my dad playing with toys and race cars and that sort of thing to try and get me to laugh at the camera."
