“Hollyoaks” actress Alex Fletcher is expecting her second baby with husband Neil Davies.
The actress, who already has 10-year-old daughter Yasmin with Davies, said it is “slightly surreal” to be expecting a baby boy in just three months time, reported Female First.
“It’s so thrilling and slightly surreal. I’m still on a bit of a high about it all. It’s a big deal isn’t it? I’m 40 in July.”
The pregnancy is particularly special for the actress as she had an ectopic pregnancy, where an embryo begins to grow outside of the womb, last year.
“It felt dangerous and frightening. Luckily, I didn’t need surgery and didn’t lose my Fallopian tubes. I had to take Methotrexate, which wasn’t pleasant and meant we couldn’t try for another baby for six months.
“Having gone through all that, it made me realise how much I wanted a baby – I was on a mission. We were so lucky it only took four months [to conceive again],” she said.
