EastEnders star Kellie Bright, 45, has welcomed her third ‘miracle’ child with husband Paul Stocker. The couple are also parents to Freddie, nine, and Gene, four
EastEnders star Kellie Bright was pictured with her newborn for the first time since welcoming her baby into the world.
The star announced the safe arrival of the latest addition to her family on Friday 10 September.
She was pictured running errands while pushing a pram in Hertfordshire.
The 45-year-old, who now has three children with husband Paul Stocker, looked gorgeous in a long flowy patterned dress.
She kept things simple with sliders and tied her hair up in a ponytail.
“We’re thrilled to announce the safe arrival of the latest addition to our family,” she told OK! magazine recently. “Mum and baby are doing well”.
In March, Kellie revealed she was expecting a ‘miracle’ third child after undergoing a frozen embryo transfer.
Kellie welcomed her first son Freddy naturally when she was 34.
For her second pregnancy, the actress had IVF treatment for her after she and Paul struggled to conceive.
When sharing her journey to OK! magazine, Kellie said: “It has nothing to do with the boys not being enough – they absolutely are.
“It’s just I never felt like I was done. I always had an itch, a desire to have more. My husband and I went round in circles for a couple of years deciding whether or not to just go for the third.”
She continued: “I have a demanding full-time job and the reality of having a baby and a toddler within all of that is overwhelming, and we weren’t quite ready.
“But I had such an emotional attachment to those embryos. I know they’re cells but they have the potential to be another Gene!
“I couldn’t let it go. Eventually, we decided to go ahead at the end of 2019… and then Covid-19 happened.”
Kellie recently had to hit back at critics who said she was too old to have another child.
She said: “If I was a man having my third child at 44, no one would bat an eyelid. And don’t forget my husband is much younger than me.
“He’s in his thirties, so he’s still running around after the kids, which is great!
“We met when I was 31 and I didn’t want to jump straight into having kids, I wanted us to enjoy each other, to travel and have adventures.”
