EASTENDERS’ Kellie Bright has been spotted for the first time since announcing that she is pregnant with her third baby.
The 44-year-old star showed off her growing bump as she stopped at a petrol station to fill her car.
The soap favourite looked chic in a pastel green coat, and was wearing an oversized Blondie T-Shirt underneath, as well as leggings, and comfortable flat shoes.
She had her hair tied back into a messy bun, and kept safe in a pink facemask.
Kellie stars as Linda Carter in the BBC One soap, and was thrilled to share her exciting pregnancy news earlier this week.
She and husband Paul Stocker opened up about their “rollercoaster” IVF journey, with the pair already parents to nine-year-old Freddy and four-year-old Gene.
Kellie welcomed her first son naturally at the age of 34, before having IVF in her second pregnancy.
After Gene was born, Kellie stored three extra embryos – but suffered failed pregnancy attempts with two of them.
She shared: “This baby inside me now was the last one we had – the last chance of a pregnancy, because at 44 we were not going through IVF again.
“I believe it was meant to be. But those three months, between September and November, were a real roller coaster.”
