Actor Tom Hollander turns into a father for the primary time at age 55 after rekindling his romance with inside designer Fran Hickman.
The Mail on Sunday can reveal that the star of The Night Manager is ‘extremely excited’ that Ms Hickman, 39, is anticipating their first child, anticipated in a matter of weeks.
Their information comes after they bought again collectively throughout lockdown, a decade after they referred to as off their engagement in 2010.
Last week, the couple had been noticed having lunch close to Mr Hollander’s house in Notting Hill, west London. Mrs. Hickman was wearing a plaid shirt, leggings, and a pair of white sneakers, and her bump was clearly seen.
Mr. Hollander, who might be 56 years previous in three weeks, arrived by bicycle. An onlooker stated, “They looked very much like the happy couple. Tom was often seen wrapping his arms around Fran.’

Ms Hickman moved into Mr Hollander’s £2 million flat during the pandemic and friends say ‘she never left’.
In 2021, Mr Hollander, whose six-foot height earned him the nickname ‘sex thimble’, was spotted dining with Ms Hickman at Mayfair restaurant Scott’s.
Friends have previously said they hoped the actor, who starred in BBC sitcom Rev and thriller The Night Manager, and played an English expatriate in Sky Atlantic drama The White Lotus, would propose to Ms Hickman, but it seems that he hasn’t yet. .

During his time away from Ms. Hickman, Mr. Hollander dated filmmaker Jemima Goldsmith in 2013, but that ended and she later dated comedian Russell Brand.
And in the early 2000s, he dated fashion designer and former model Daphne Guinness — the daughter of colleague and businessman Jonathan Guinness.
Mr Hollander gave a candid insight into his life in 2020, when an article he wrote for The Sunday Times went viral just after he and Ms Hickman got back together.
He was praised for his honest confessions, including late-night toilet visits. He wrote, “I wake up at 3 or 4 am. Not because I’m like Mrs Thatcher, but because I have to pee. I pee in the dark and use my phone screen to illuminate the target.”
