Doctor Who's the daddy: David Tennant and Georgia Moffett expecting baby



Engaged and expecting: Georgia Moffett, the daughter of former Doctor Who actor Peter Davison, and David Tennant

Former Dr Who David Tennant and his new fiancée Georgia Moffett walk happily hand-in-hand close to their new home in West London.

And now The Daily Mail has learned the pair have a double celebration ahead.

After it emerged they were engaged, the Mail have now been told that Miss Moffett is expecting their child. Indeed, the actress is believed to be at least five months pregnant.

A source revealed: ‘They are a couple who like to keep themselves to themselves. Friends and family are delighted though.’

The new arrival will be Tennant’s first child – but Miss Moffett’s second.

She has an eight-year-old son – called Tyler - from a previous relationship. She has never publicly named the father of the Tyler is and he is not named on the youngster’s birth certificate.

It emerged earlier this month that the couple had become engaged and there had been speculation they would marry on New Year’s Day next year.

Time Lord: Tennant appeared alongside Moffett in a 2008 episode of Doctor Who

However, it is currently not now known whether Miss Moffett and Tennant – the son of a Church of Scotland minister Rev Alexander McDonald – will marry before the birth of the youngster in late spring.

Miss Moffett, 26, and Tennant, 39, met when he was playing the Time Lord and she had a guest role in the series in 2008. Ironically, she played his daughter Jenny in the episode, called The Doctor's Daughter.

Even so, Miss Moffett has long had a link to the legendary science-fiction series.
While Tennant was the tenth actor to portray the Doctor, Miss Moffett’s father, Peter Davison was the fifth actor to play the Time Lord.

Mr Davison, 59, played the Doctor from 1981 to 1984, in which time his daughter Georgia was born to his first wife, US actress Sandra Dickinson - who also appeared in Doctor Who.

At the time, Davison was the youngest actor to ever play Doctor Who, a record now owned by current incumbent Matt Smith.

Davison - who has also two sons to second wife Elizabeth Morton - was the Doctor that Tennant watched when he was growing up.

And it appears the admiration is mutual.

In a previous interview with the Mail, Davison said: 'It's great because David is a genuinely nice guy - and also a very fine Doctor Who. I'm delighted Georgia has found happiness because she hasn't always had an easy life.'

Miss Moffett is not the first actress Tennant has dated. He previously squired actress Sophia Myles for two years after meeting her on set but they split up in 2007 following her move to Hollywood.

Agents for the pair have declined to comment on Miss Moffett’s pregnancy.
