Kellie Bright, EastEnders actress, revealed she will again become a mother.

In order to conceive her third child, Kellie, which is playing Linda Carter on show, underwent IVF from an embryo frozen.

Two sons, the 9-year-old and four-year-old Freddie, already have Kellie and her husband Paul Stoker. Gene has been developed by IVF as well.

Three additional embryos have been frozen and two unsuccessful attemptions were made last year by Kellie and Paul following the operation.

Talking to the reporters she said, “I want to be open and honest about this, because I think it’s important for younger women to understand. It’s important for women to know that, yes, you can have children in your forties and, yes, you can be lucky and do it naturally. But for a lot of us it doesn’t work that way, so I wouldn’t suggest leaving it late by choice. To set the scene, I really struggled getting pregnant with my second child.”

She added to her statement and said, “I was 34 when we naturally conceived Freddy but we couldn’t get pregnant again. We tried for a long time and we got to a point, around the time I was doing Strictly, where we started to investigate IVF. I was 39 by this point and we went for it. It was successful. We managed to get four good, strong embryos. One became Gene, the other three went into the freezer.”

The actress then revealed that this journey had begun long time ago in September but the process failed twice.

To quote her final words, she mentioned, “So this baby inside me now was the last one we had – the last chance of a pregnancy, because at 44 we were not going through IVF again. I believe it was meant to be.”

She talked about when she heard that the test was finally positive and said, “I was so shocked and thrilled, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I ran downstairs to Paul. I just stood crying – really crying – and he couldn’t understand a word I was saying! It took my breath away. I knew it was my last chance, so the fact it was a positive was so unbelievably wonderful. A truly wonderful, crazy life moment.”

We are really happy to know that the actress will be having her third child real soon.
