Michelle Keegan put off children by Coronation Street pregnancy
Michelle Keegan has admitted she will "always be broody" but her pregnancy storyline - and "working with a baby" - has put her off having her own children.
Michelle Keegan's says "working with a baby" has put her off children for a while.
The 'Coronation Street' star - who plays Tina McIntyre in the soap - has admitted her surrogate mother storyline has given her a different "outlook" on becoming a parent, but she is still "broody".
The story sees Tina gives birth to Izzy Armstrong and Gary Windass' child two months early and while she enjoyed it "at first", the toughness of filming the scenes took its toll.
She told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "I loved the pregnancy bump at first, but probably after the fifth month i wanted it off.
"I don't think it was the bump [that] put me off having kids. I'll always be broody.
"But working with a baby has changed my outlook as I don't think I'm ready.
"Give it a few more years. I hope when I give birth it's that easy though it was painless!"
The 25-year-old actress, who last week was named Sexiest Female at the British Soap Awards for the fifth consecutive year, revealed she used her fake bump to play a prank on her father.
She added: "I sent him a picture of me, saying, 'I've got something to tell you'. It freaked him out a bit."
Michelle has played Tina on the show for five years, and is leaving the soap in 2014.
