Speaking about their upcoming nuptials to You magazine, she said: "I’m not a very good bride-to-be. I poked my head into the world of big wedding productions and was, like, 'Nope! We’ll figure something out.’ My parents have seen me in a wedding dress with big hair on screen so many times, they’re just not that interested."
The pair welcomed their baby son back in April 2021, and Sophie shared the lovely news on Instagram, writing: "Our little boy, who arrived safely and happily over the Easter weekend and changed the game forever. My little egg. My overflowing, grateful heart."
Matt has starred in Misfits and Bodyguard
She recently followed up with a birthday post after the youngster turned one, writing: "If somebody could please explain to me how this little frog is a whole year old already that would maybe calm me down about the terrifying speed at which time passes these days okay cool thanks.
