Jennifer Metcalfe's partner Greg Lake is convinced she's expecting a baby girl
Greg Lake is "convinced" he and Jennifer Metcalfe are expecting a baby girl because of a dream he had.
The former 'Geordie Shore' actor is expecting his first child with the 'Hollyoaks' actress, and though they haven't found out the sex of the unborn tot, he'll be surprised if they have a boy - though the brunette beauty is not so convinced by his vision.
Greg said: "I'm convinced it's a girl. I dreamt it. A little girl ran to me. I don't know how because she was a baby but she did."
But Jennifer added: "He had a dream the other night that he was holding a baby ad it turned into a chocolate milkshake, so who knows.
"We keep saying 'Awww the little lady'. We're convinced that much but really we don't have a clue
"I say, 'Can e call it a little boy today?' And when I do, Greg is like, 'No, it doesn't sound right.' " But all we want is a happy, healthy baby."
The 33-year-old actress is looking forward to the "challenge" of giving birth and doesn't have any special plans or wishes in place for her labour.
She said: "I don't have a birthing plan and I don't want one. I'm relying on Mother Nature.
"Cats and dogs do it behind couches on their own and women do it in the middle of nowhere.
"I'm actually quite excited about the birth. I thought I would panic about getting it out but I'm up for the challenge and looking forward to the experience in a sick way."
While she's almost in her third trimester, Jennifer - who has played 'Hollyoaks' man-eater Mercedes McQueen for over a decade - is still not sure when she'll be winding up work or how long she'll be off for, but she's willing to keep filming until "the end".
She told OK! magazine: "I'm not sure when I go on maternity leave yet. I still need to discuss it with the producer, Bryan [Kirkwood], but he was over the moon when I told him.
"I haven't got a clue what I'm doing so I'm just going to trust their guidance and whenever they want me to go, I'll go. But I'm willing to work until the end. Hollyoaks' are really supportive, so it's lovely."
