Georgia May Foote admits depicting pregnancy in 'Coronation Street' has put her off having children.
The 21-year-old actress was desperate for her character Katy Armstrong to give birth on the show because she was so uncomfortable wearing a prosthetic bump.
She said: "The pregnancy went on for such a long time and I just wanted Katy to have the baby because I hated wearing the big bump!
"It was doing my head in because it was really heavy and would really dig in. It's put me off having kids for a while. I will definitely wait until I'm at least 30. It didn't make me broody at all, probably the opposite."
After giving birth to baby Joseph on Christmas Day (25.12.11), Katy suffered from post-natal depression and Georgia May took to "hiding away" from her co-stars to help herself stay in the right frame of mind to tackle the storyline.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: "The post-natal depression storyline has been hard and I found the filming very intense.
"It was quite good because it only went on for a couple of weeks but I did end up locking myself away until I went on set.
"The 'Corrie' green room is so lively so if I was to go in there before a scene I couldn't switch to being sad and crying my eyes out on set. I would hide away until the last minute."
