So sad. Harry Potter actress Jessie Cave revealed her newborn son, Tenn, who was only born in October, has been hospitalized with COVID-19. 

"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," the 33-year-old captioned a photo of her son in the hospital on Tuesday, January 5. 

"This strain is super powerful and contagious so I do hope that people take extra care in the coming weeks," she continued. "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 9lbs 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 💚."

Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently put England on lockdown after a more transmissible variant of the virus has popped up in the country.


Of course, fans couldn’t help but send love to the U.K. native. One person wrote, “Oh my goodness, Jessie, what a scary thing for you all. Sending so much love and so glad he’s safe. Get well soon l’il Cavette xxxx,” while another person echoed, “Sending you our love, Jessie and hope he has a speedy recovery.” A third user added, “I’m so sorry! Wishing you all a speedy recovery!!! Xx.”

The mom of three also showed off her schedule, which included sleeping and feeding her little one. Cave also shared a photo of Julia Samuel’s book This Too Shall Pass


In October, the podcast host announced that she had given birth to Tenn, whom she shares with her partner, Alfie Brown

"Our baby boy was born in the early hours yesterday morning just 40 mins after my waters were broken," Cave wrote. "Slightly extreme but so were his kicks throughout the pregnancy! This has been a very different experience to my first two births ... much more humbling, terrifying and out of my control. We are currently in the neo natal unit but he's a strong boy and it's the safest place for him right now."

Fortunately, Tenn was brought home, where he got to meet his siblings — Margot, 4, and Donnie, 6. 

Before Tenn got sick, Cave frequently posted photos of her newborn and her family on social media.
