Emily, 35, was also in attendance alongside husband John Krasinski, and the actress ensured her sister's surprise pregnancy took centre stage by cupping a hand over her belly as they posed for photos. 

The news comes three years after Felicity and Stanley - already a father of three from his first marriage to late wife Kathryn -  welcomed son Matteo in 2015.

Stanley had previously admitted to feeling guilty after proposing to Felicity in 2011, two-years after losing his beloved Kathryn to breast cancer.

‘It was very hard to go on vacations at first, really hard to go with Felicity someplace,’ he told the Times supplement. ‘I felt guilty. It’s horrible. You always feel guilty. 

‘There are photographs (of Kathryn) around at home… Not that many, but I would have difficulty. And especially when we first met it was only two years after Kate died. So…’

The couple hit it off after meeting at his The Devil Wears Prada co-star Emily's wedding to John, held a George Clooney’s Lake Como home in 2010.

Despite a 20-year-age gap Stanley admits a number of shared interests – not least a passion for food – helped them bond during their initial dates.

The actor later proposed to Felicity during a trip to Berlin the following year, and he admitted her British outlook made her all the more endearing.

‘Well, English women are a bit more relaxed than Americans,’ he told the publication. ‘You do swear and drink more, but I like that. I find that very attractive.’ 

Stanley is already a father to daughter Camilla, 12, and twins Nicolo and Isabel.

Stanley, a New York native, was married to social worker Kathryn from 1995 until her death.
