Friends and family who have not received a response to e-mails and WhatsApp messages from actress Jessica Barden in recent months do not have to take this personally. Via Instagram, the 29-year-old announced that she recently became a mother, as a result of which she has neglected the rest of the world lately.

“I absolutely love being someone’s mother”

Jessica, who plays Alyssa in the Netflix series End of the F***ing World , captioned a bulging post: “If I didn’t answer you and you felt like I was avoiding you, that was because I was pregnant this whole year’. The actress then thanks her team for the support and care. “I absolutely love being someone’s mother,” she concluded.

Followers of Jessica waiting for a photo of the little one come home from a rude awakening. The actress says in the message that she will ‘never’ post her child on Instagram. “So this is still a meme account,” she jokes.

The End of the F***ing World , based on the comic book series by Charles Forsman, tells the story of teenagers James and Alyssa who go in search of Alyssa’s father. The first season was a huge hit and received rave reviews. The series was also nominated for an Emmy and a BAFTA. Watch the trailer below:
