EastEnders star Louisa Lytton announced the news with a very sweet snap on Instagram.
Louisa Lytton has welcomed her first child with fiancé Ben Bhanvra and said she is “overwhelmed with love”.
The EastEnders actress announced the news with an adorable snap and said the pair are thrilled.
Speaking to OK! she said: “And then there were three. Welcome to the world, we are utterly overwhelmed with love”.
She announced her pregnancy in a letter to her own mum on Mother’s day.
She wrote: “Dear Mum, If I am a fraction of the mother you are, I know I’ll be the best.
“You have held my hand for 32 years, you have taught me right from wrong, corrected my spelling, and helped me see the light at the end of every single tunnel.
“And now you will guide me to becoming a mummy. (Just try not to move yourself in or Ben might leave).”
The two were forced to postpone their wedding twice already due to coronavirus.
Louisa and Ben are now set to tie the knot in Ben’s hometown of York in July this year.
She recently told OK! Magazine : “We’ve booked the wedding for July, we just don’t know if it will go ahead. We’ve said that if we can’t have the exact wedding we want, with all our guests, we’ll postpone it again.”
And she added: “Otherwise, to me that’s not a wedding – it’s not the wedding I would want. It’s not worth it for us,” she added.
Louisa admitted she would prefer to wait to have their big day, until it’s completely safe and their guests can fully relax without having to compromise on the guest list.
She also admitted she has been tempted to completely call off the wedding, adding: “Part of me felt like scrapping everything and starting again.”
Louisa, who has played Ruby Allen on EastEnders since 2005, has been with fiance Ben since 2017 – He popped the question whilst they were on holiday in the Maldives.
Louisa said of the romantic proposal: “When I saw him on one knee I started crying like a baby. I was so excited but my brain went into overdrive and I started freaking out. I had no idea he was going to propose.”
