In her first COVID announcement post, Cave posted “Coronavirus followed by norovirus on top of the near-constant nausea this entire pregnancy. But I’m still managing to be a total ray of sunshine, don’t worry.”

That detail about nausea appears to have become a larger issue as Cave’s body has battled COVID, as her hospital stay Instagram Stories have also touched on the subject:

“Also, has anyone taken the anti-nausea drug and it made them feel worse?” Cave posted, later adding: “Thank you for the info about nausea drugs … I will NOT be taking them as too scared of feeling worse.”

Cave has had all four pregnancies with her partner, Alfie Brown. Fans around the world are already wishing her a speedy recovery.

While Jessie Cave’s time in the franchise is over, the Harry Potter movies continue on with the prequel series Fantastic Beasts. That franchise is set to release its third film, The Secrets of Dumbledore, which will look into the secret history of Hogwarts’ famed headmaster and his family, as the threat of Grindelwald continues to rise over both the wizarding and human worlds.

Set in the 1930s, the story leads up to the Wizarding World’s involvement in World War II and will explore the magical communities in Bhutan, Germany and China in addition to previously established locations including Brazil, the United States and United Kingdom. With Grindelwald’s (Mads Mikkelsen) power rapidly growing, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) entrusts Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his friends on a mission that will lead to a clash with Grindelwald’s army, and will lead Dumbledore to ponder how long he will stay on the sidelines in the approaching war.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will be released in theaters on April 8, 2022.
