Harry Potter star Jessie Cave's three-month-old son Abraham is being treated in hospital after testing positive for coronavirus.
The 33-year-old actress took to Instagram Tuesday morning to share a photo of her baby in a hospital bed in a remote room. An iPad played Boris Johnson's national address and announced the lockdown.
In her caption, Jessie, who has Abraham, five-year-old son Donnie, and three-year-old daughter Margot with comedian Alfie Brown, confirmed that their baby is fine and fine because of the "superpowerful and contagious" strain of the virus.
Jessie greeted Abraham in October and the newborn spent the first few days of his life in the neonatal ward after her "terrible and humiliating" pregnancy.

She later went to Instagram Stories to share more hospital photos, including a stethoscope hanging over the bed, a breakfast of cornflakes and juice, and a cute picture of Abraham.
MailOnline has asked representatives from Jessie for a comment.
In November research found that newborns are very unlikely to get seriously ill with Covid-19. The researchers also concluded that the chances of a baby getting the virus from their infected mother are very small.

Babies and COVID-19
Although rare, children under one year of age are at higher risk of developing serious illnesses with COVID-19 than older children.
This is due to their immature immune systems and smaller airways, which make them more likely to develop respiratory virus infections.
Newborn babies can become infected with the virus that COVID-19 causes during childbirth or through contact with sick caregivers after delivery.
Research shows that only about 2% to 5% of infants born to women with COVID-19 near their birthday tested positive for the virus in the days after they were born
Infants with COVID-19 who cannot be tested and are symptomatic due to a lack of availability may be discharged from hospital depending on the circumstances.
It is recommended that the baby's caregivers wear face masks and wash their hands to protect themselves. Regular follow-up care with the baby's health care provider is required for 14 days – by phone, virtually, or in the office. Infants who test negative for COVID-19 can be sent home from the hospital.

Only 66 of 118,000 babies born between March and April at the height of the first wave in the UK got the disease in the first month of life – the equivalent of one in 1,785 births, or 0.06 percent.
Imperial College London researchers revealed the extremely low risk Covid-19 poses to infants after reviewing births registered by the British Pediatric Surveillance Unit (BPSU) between March and April.
Of the babies who developed the disease, 28 were classified as seriously ill and had high temperatures, difficulty breathing, or attacks of coughing or vomiting.

When Jessie announced Abraham's arrival in October, she posted a picture of herself breastfeeding, revealing that he is "in the neonatal unit but a strong boy".
Earlier this year, stand-up star Alfie announced that he and Jessie had revived their relationship after they broke up when their youngest child was only 10 weeks old.

In order to maintain a healthy work-life balance, the actress told Bustle in 2018, "I learned pretty early on that you can't work a lot with kids around you.
"When they were maybe babies but now they don't sleep so I am on my feet all day. My mother is brilliant; she helps me most days.
“In fact, I lived with her and my sister until a few weeks ago. My partner Alfie and I broke up when Margot was only 10 weeks old. & # 39;
