EMMERDALE’S Michelle Hardwick has announced she is pregnant with her first baby six months after marrying soap producer Kate Brooks.
The actress, who plays Vanessa Woodford in the ITV soap, got married in Memphis with an Elvis-inspired wedding last September.
The happy couple are now expecting their first baby together in October.
Tonight, she took to Instagram to annouce her baby news with a picture of her wife Kate pointing at her baby bump.
“Fred’s big brother duties commence in October #BabyBrooks,” she commented.
Last year, sharing a snap of her and Kate on the steps of Gracelands, Elvis’ home, she wrote: “In over 100 degrees heat, on Tuesday 10th September, I became Mrs Brooks. #graceland #chapelinthewoods #memphis #nextstopnashville.”
In the picture, Michelle can be seen in a white jumpsuit – something The King would be proud of – and sunglasses.
Meanwhile Kate wore a white flowing dress and held her bouquet up in the air as she grinned for the camera.
The couple became engaged in December 2018 after months of planning.
Michelle took to Instagram to share the happy news at the time, writing: “So after months of planning, I popped the question!!! She said yes!!!
Michelle has played Vanessa in Emmerdale since 2012, while Kate is a producer on the soap.
The couple went public with their relationship in September 2019.
They confirmed the romance on National Coming Out Day, with Michelle sharing a picture of the pair with rainbow emojis.
She captioned the sweet snap: “It will all work out in the end.”
However, last month, Michelle admitted she was too scared to hold Kate’s hand in public amid fears of homophobia.
