Natalie Anderson has revealed exclusively to HELLO! that she and husband James Shepherd are expecting a little boy.
She said: "We are thrilled to tell you we are expecting a little boy! We are both so excited."
The news follows the Emmerdale actress' exclusive interview with HELLO! in which she announced she was pregnant.
The couple admitted they felt overwhelmed at the first scan, with Natalie saying:
"I cried and James had a tear in his eye. It was incredible to see the tiny hands and feet, the face and this little thing dancing away."
Natalie also touchingly revealed that she believes her beloved late grandfather, who died last year, is helping her through the pregnancy.
"He inspired me. If I'm feeling nervous about the baby, anxious that things will be all right, I feel him around me. It's a lovely feeling, as though I have someone watching over me."
