Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley has announced the joyful news that she’s pregnant with her second child.
The 38-year-old actress, who played Eva Price in the ITV soap, revealed she and husband Tom Pitfield are expecting a baby girl.
They are already parents to six-year-old son Alfie.
Sharing the news, Catherine told Hello! Magazine: ‘We feel so lucky. When we found out, I just burst into tears…
‘Tom was in bits when we found out we are having a little girl. He has suddenly gone all mushy. I’m sure she will have him wrapped around her little finger.’
Catherine was convinced her body was ‘mimicking a pregnancy’ and even thought she was in the early stages of menopause.
She added: ‘I was having terrible insomnia, which is still with me. I was so hot at night and unable to control my temperature. I started to panic that perhaps I was perimenopausal. I know I would have been a bit young, but it does happen.’
So far during the pregnancy, Catherine is battling hyperemesis gravidarum, which is an extreme form of pregnancy sickness. However, she’s fortunately been able to control it with the help of medication.
Last month, Catherine paid tribute to husband Tom with a heartfelt message in celebration of his birthday.
‘It’s Pickles Birthday!!!! Happy Birthday to the man that holds us all together! @tompitfieldphotography,’ she began.
‘Thank you for being our constant ray of sunshine and voice of reason
Thank you for always putting us first. Thank you for always supporting my dreams and goals – even when they’re outrageous.
‘Thankyou for always cleaning up my cooking bomb site. For hugging me every single night- even when I smell like biscuits coz I’m covered in fake tan. Thank you for our beautiful son and for being the greatest role model he could wish for.’
She continued: ‘Thanks for always giving me a bite of your dessert.
‘Thank you for always reading lines with me (it’s a matter of time before the casting directors fall in love with your Wigan tones). Thank you for loving me – even when I’m hungry/hormonal/pretending to be other people. Happy Birthday @tompitfieldphotography.’
