Teletubbies sun baby is now pregnant with first child

Teletubbies sun baby is now pregnant with first child

Jess is now expecting a little ray of sunshine of her own

Any fan of the famous four will know this baby's face.

No, obviously not the Beatles, I'm talking the real big four. The four who shaped our childhoods.

I'm talking Tinky Winky, Laa Laa, Dipsy and Po. The Teletubbies.

No episode of the children's TV show was complete without those giggles of the 'sun baby'.

Kind of creepy when you think of it, Teletubbies featured a little baby's face in the glowing sun over Teletubbyland.

And with the programme originally airing between 1997 and 2001, it was a real baby used to light up the sky rather than an AI one.

But she didn't stay as a baby forever, I mean obviously, and now she's expecting one of her own.

Jessica Smith was the iconic 'sun baby' of Teletubbies and is now all grown up in her 20s.

According to her Instagram, Jess was born in 1995 and was the face of the sun baby from 1997 until 2015.

The original Teletubbies run went until 2001, but a new version came out in 2015 with a new sun baby.

The star took to Instagram to announce she and her partner are expecting, writing 'when two becomes three' with sonogram images.

Teletubbies fans (can you still be a fan? reminiscers maybe?) were quick to comment: "The Teletubbies sun baby is having her own sun baby," and: "Congratulations!!! You're gonna have your own sun baby!!!"

Jess has previously revealed how she’d sometimes tried to hide her early stardom from the world, but decided to come clean about it.

She wrote on social media: “I’ve decided it’s time to tell everyone.

“I used to hide it but after a lot of encouragement from my friends at university, I’ve gained the confidence to come out with it.

“I am the sun from Teletubbies.

“There have been quite a few people pretending to be the sun but only I could tell you the real story.”

So, Jess claims that she'd been taken to a hospital for a check-up as a young child but just happened to be there on the exact same day a producer from the show had been in and asked if there were any ‘smiley babies’.

Sweeping over how odd that sounds, she was such a smily baby she was selected for the role.

Jess continued: “While recording my dad held a teddy bear behind the camera to get me to laugh and rolled a toy racing car to get me to look down at the camera, and it obviously worked.”
