Lucy Pargeter is expecting twin girls.
The 'Emmerdale' star and her fiancé Rudi Coleano are set to welcome their daughters, who they conceived via IVF, into the world in May but doctors have warned the actress that she may go into labour in April as twins are rarely allowed to go over 37 weeks.
She said: "It's two girls! We found out at the five-month scan just before Christmas, and we're just over the moon that they're both healthy - it was the best Christmas present!"
Although she's still got a few months to go until she'll meet her little ones, Lucy is still trying to decide whether to have natural birth or to go ahead with a Caesarean section.
Speaking to OK! magazine, the 39-year-old actress explained: "We've talked about a C-section and a natural birth. With twins, you often have one naturally and one can end up being a C-section. The recovery time with a C-section is difficult afterwards, but a natural birth can be horrendous, too, so I'll see how it goes."
Lucy and Rudi went through an unsuccessful round of IVF in 2015 and were thrilled when they found out they were expecting two babies late last year.
The pair - who already have 11-year-old daughter Lola together - are also hoping to give IVF one more shot in the near future as they still have two frozen embryos.
She explained: "We still have two frozen embryos but I can guarantee they will be more girls. Mind you, most people say that when you go from two to three children, it's a massive difference, so three to four might not be that bad."
