The moment that postive pregnancy test happens, parents-to-be start to plot how they will share the happy news.
When Emmerdale actress Amy Walsh revealed to OK! that she's due to have a baby at Christmas time with fellow soap star Toby-Alexander Smith (who plays baddie Gray in EastEnders), she happily revealed all about the cute way she told her friends on the soap.
She told us: “I have a WhatsApp group called 'Core Four', which is Fiona Wade, Michelle Hardwick and Laura Norton, so I told them and also Roxy Shahidi. They were so excited.”
Michelle had son Teddy with Emmerdale producer Kate Brooks last year, Roxy has one child with actor Arsher Ali, and Laura welcomed a baby Jesse with co-star Mark Jordan in February – so they will have plenty of advice about the joys and sleepless nights to come!
In the exclusive chat with OK!, Amy sat down with her boyfriend Toby and shared the happy news about how they fell pregnant just two months from making the decision to start a family.
Amy was surprised as she'd been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome at 20.
“I always thought falling pregnant was going to be a battle,” says Amy.
Toby also revealed who he spilled the beans to first, adding: “My sister and brother-in-law, then a few days later we told my parents face to face. They were ecstatic for us. I think they had inclinations we were trying, but they were as surprised as us!”
He also couldn't keep it from his co-stars on the EastEnders set for too long, and tells OK!: “I remember going for a drink with Max Bowden quite early on and telling him.
"I texted Lorraine Stanley as she was actually there the night we met. I also told Linda Henry and Danny Dyer. Everyone is over the moon for us. They all said it’s such lovely news, especially after the year we’ve had.”
Christmas time is set to be extra special for Amy and Toby this year!
