Actress ANNA FRIEL is delighted after overcoming an ovarian disease to conceive her first child. The Me Without You (2001) beauty and her Naked star beau David Thewlis are expecting their first child, according to British tabloid The Daily Sport. The stunning brunette, 26, was diagnosed with endometriosis and doctors recommended she conceive sooner rather than later.
A friend says, "Anna's only been pregnant for a few weeks so she won't be showing yet. No one could tell at the BAFTAs (24th February 2002). One of the crew asked why David was looking so depressed, thinking he was worrying about directing a film for the first time. But it was the fact that Anna was pregnant and he was worried about complications. " The couple's agent refuses to confirm or deny the story.
