SKINS actress Kaya Scodelario has revealed she is pregnant.

The actress, who played the character of Effy Stonem in the hit E4 teen drama series, announced the news on social media.

Alongside a mirror selfie of her baby bump, Kaya, from Haywards Heath, wrote a statement on Instagram.

She said: “I tried to set up one of those beautiful pregnancy reveal pictures with the meadow and the golden sunset and the hay and the puppy’s and the perfectly put together BoHo outfit and flowing natural hair with baby chicks nesting in it but then I realised that IM WAY TOO tired, achy and lazy right now.

“So, here’s me pulling an awkward face in the mirror whilst wearing makeup for the first time in 6 months instead. We are very happy obviously. But mostly super tired.”

In a recent interview with the Evening Standard, Kaya said becoming a mother changed the way she approaches her career and meant she is now more selective when choosing roles and filming locations.

"When I first started out, I was just looking for employment, I just wanted to work,” she said.

"But now I think being a mum I have to be pickier if I’m going to be away for six months on the other side of the world.”

After shooting to fame as Effy in Skins in 2007, she went on to star in The Pirates of the Caribbean and Maze Runner, as well as starring opposite Zac Effron in 2019 Ted Bundy biopic Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
