Emmerdale Cast Baby News!
New year, new starts, new babies! Emmerdale actresses Charley Webb and former Dales star Gemma Atkinson have both announced they are expecting babies in 2019.
Emmerdale actresses Charley Webb, who plays Debbie Dingle, and Gemma Atkinson, who played Carly Hope before swapping the Dales and Strictly Come Dancing, both took to social media to share the joyous news that they are pregnant and expecting a baby in 2019.
Charley, who is married to co-star Matthew Wolfenden, who plays David Metcalfe, already has two sons Buster, aged eight years, and Bowie, three. She posted a picture on her instagram account with Matthew and their boys with their dog in front of a tree with Buster holding a lightbox sign that read: ‘Buster, Bowie and…’. Charley captioned the shot: ‘#Number3’.
The couple have been together for over 12 years, having met on Emmerdale in 2007. They got engaged in 2009 and married almost a year ago in a surprise wedding at Ripley Castle, Yorkshire on February 10.
In an interview about the wedding with OK magazine, Matthew said when questioned about expanding their family: “I’d have a football team but it’s not me that has to go through the hard work is it!’ he pointed out.
“We’re definitely gonna go for number three. we’re not trying at the moment, but we’d like the age gap to be closer to our youngest and we’d quite like a girl but… we’ll see, my family are all boys and we’ve got two already.”
Actress, radio DJ and BBC Strictly Come Dancing finalist Gemma Atkinson, who was on Emmerdale from 2015 to 2017, also shared a family photo to announce her pregnancy with partner and Strictly professional dancer Gorka Marquez – which was of her dogs.
On Friday, Gemma posted a picture on Instagram and Twitter of her two dogs Ollie and Norman wearing signs around their necks. One said: ‘Guess what… Mum’s expecting,’ and the other said: ‘We’re going to be big brothers!’
Accompanying the picture, Gemma posted the caption: “Myself & Gorks are beyond excited and happy and feel incredibly blessed to be meeting our new family member later this year. Baby Marquez!!! We love you loads already @gorka_marquez.”
Gemma and Gorka met while competing against each other on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017. They have been dating for a year and recently moved in together. Despite many rumours during their Strictly journey, the couple confirmed their romance on Valentine’s Day last year, and the pair have been inseparable ever since.
Given good news comes in three, we wonder which Emmerdale star will be next…
