Kym Marsh is being monitored in hospital after complications during her pregnancy and has revealed she will not be having any more children

Kym Marsh is being kept in hospital while doctors monitor her pregnancy.

The 'Coronation Street' actress - whose son Archie died in February 2009 after he was born 18 weeks early - has been in hospital for almost a week after medics reportedly prescribed a steroid treatment that allows babies' lungs to develop fully while in the womb, but is hoping to be allowed home soon.

Kym - who is engaged to 'Hollyoaks' star Jamie Lomas - is currently 27 weeks pregnant with a daughter and show bosses have given her early maternity leave in order to focus on her health.

The 34-year-old star - who has been diagnosed with an incompetent cervix, which can cause premature birth or late miscarriage - also has two children, David, 15, and 13-year-old Emily from a previous relationship but recently revealed this will be her last pregnancy.

She said: "I can definitely say my childbearing days are over. I couldn't go through this again, it's too heartbreaking. We don't know the exact problems we had with Archie. I hate that term late miscarriage as I gave birth to Archie when he was a fully formed human being.

"This pregnancy has been really difficult, a nightmare in fact. We've been on eggshells. But it's lovely when we see her on the scan and when I feel her wriggling."
