Hannah Waterman has revealed that former The Bill actor Huw Higginson is the father of her unborn baby.
The six-months pregnant actress confirmed the news in an interview with Closer magazine.
And the 35-year-old also spoke candidly about their relationship and how quickly it developed.
"Last year, Huw came a bit unstuck in his personal life and I was on tour with Calendar Girls, so he stayed at my house for a while," she said.
"He moved in in June, and things progressed quite quickly from there!
"We spoke early on in our relationship about the fact that we’d like a family. I’m 35 and I didn’t want to wait around because, as everyone knows, it can be harder to conceive as you get older.
"But we didn’t expect it to happen so quickly!"
Huw, 47, reportedly left his wife of 15 years and their daughters, aged nine and 15, to be in with Hannah.
