They revealed Amy had given birth over the festive period, confirming the arrival to OK!.

The couple said in a joint statement: “Well…it’s been a busy week! Hope you all had a good one. HAPPY NEW YEAR from the three of us.”

Toby is Albert Square’s resident villain, Gray Atkins – having killed his wife Chantelle Gray, Tina Carter and Kush Kazemi.

Meanwhile, in the Dales, Amy’s character Tracy Metcalfe is now a mum too.

Amy revealed she was pregnant back in September, telling OK!: “We’re so excited. It feels as though the way everything happened was meant to be.

“I thought I might struggle with fertility, so for pregnancy to happen quite easily and when I wanted – I was gobsmacked.

“We feel incredibly lucky.”

Amy recently explained how the couple got together after Toby sat beside her in the audience for Strictly Come Dancing.

He was there to support Honey Mitchell co-star Emma Barton while Amy was there to cheer on Kelvin Fletcher, who went on to win the series that year.

Amy shared: “He walked in and sat next to me and I turned round to my friend and was like, ‘Who is that? He’s so fit!’ And she was like, ‘I knew you’d say that straight away.’

“We were just chatting all night and really got on.”

Toby added: “It’s very snug in that Strictly audience and we were sat very similar to how we’re sat now… 

“Once the show had finished I went to the bar and Amy was with people from Emmerdale and as I looked over she had the biggest glass of red wine and a pack of chicken crisps and I thought that’s a woman after my own heart.”

Amy quipped: “I was mortified when he asked me out because I was still holding them.”
