They expect their first child together, and Jessica Grace Smith is a former co-star on Home and Away. After ten years of dating, the pair tied the knot last year.
Jessica played Denny Miller from 2014 to 2015, when she was tragically died in a freak accident, while Benedict played Duncan, Alf Stewart’s estranged son, from 2016 to 2017.
Jessica revealed her baby bump in a lovely, sun-drenched photo, and the couple announced their happy news on Instagram. “I’m just resting in pre-production”, she said, winking at admirers.
We’d say Jessica’s beach sunning spot has us green with envy, but Benedict’s account of his first day on the Home and Away set tops the list.
Shortly after landing the role of Duncan, the actor remembers his first day on the set of Home and Away.
Do you mind if I go swimming before I get into the make-up chair? “I was half an hour early, having been picked up by my driver and driven out there in a big car.” So that was alright with them.
This is a job that Benedict said he hopes to have only once in a lifetime. “That kind of independence is not available anyplace else in the world, in my opinion. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience.”
In the United Kingdom, Home and Away airs daily at 1.15 pm and 6 pm on Channel 5 and on Channel 7 from Mondays to Thursdays at 7 pm (Australia). In addition, Amazon Prime Video in the UK offers selected classic episodes.
