The couple announced they are expecting a baby in February after four rounds of IVF starting in 2019.
The news has celebrated celebrity friends including BBC presenter Clara Amfo, singer Fleur East and professional Johannes Radebe of the serious Come Dancing band.
Dong said: “Ahhhh congratulations!!! Welcome baby to the world! “
Adams, 39, made history in 2020 as the first gay movie starring Katya Jones, but their journey was cut short after Jones tested positive for Covid -19 and they were forced to leave the series early.
In the past, she said she believes there is still a “stigma” attached to the IVF procedure and the lack of parenting books for same-sex families.
Announcing their pregnancy, she wrote: “If you are a same-sex couple going through this chapter of your life, know that you are not alone.”
