Danniella Westbrook is only five weeks pregnant but is convinced she's expecting twins because her bump is so big
Danniella Westbrook thinks she's expecting twins.
The former 'EastEnders' actress is convinced she's carrying two babies because she's only five weeks pregnant and her bump is already "huge", but she's got to wait another four weeks until the doctors can confirm how many little ones she's with.
Speaking on 'Lorraine' on Monday (04.09.17), she said: "I'm great actually, really good, fantastic. I don't know if I'm having two because I'm huge. I'm only five weeks and I'm huge. It may well be twins but I don't have a scan for another four/five weeks."
The 43-year-old star - who has battled with drugs and alcohol addiction for most of her life - returned to taking cocaine after suffering a miscarriage in 2016 but, since going clean, she's realised there's more to life than snorting substances.
Danniella - who also has Kai, 20, and Jody, 14, with her ex-husband Kevin Jenkins - said: "Life is looking up, life is fun and it's good. I'm just in a better place, I'm 43 - I did relapse after my marriage broke down and I'm a drug addict so that's what I would go to, some people would pick up a bottle, some gamble, some people have other addictions but mine unfortunately was drugs and is drugs.
"As a drug addict I can never say never but for me, I know there's a lot more to life than picking up that rubbish ... For myself, for my own two children that I've got already, before anything.
"And for my mum, and everyone I've put everyone through enough. And I'm just sick to death of it, I'm sick to death of relapsing, people are sick to death of hearing about is as well, and I just think life is a blessing and you have to embrace that life."
Danniella is expecting with her new boyfriend Alan Thomason, 34, and feels positive about this relationship because she believes he's able to "tame" her.
She said: "He's a real man's man and he's Spanish so he has those whole Spanish values and family-orientated and stuff like that. He just takes control and he does take care of me. He's good fun as well so we've got a happy mix between everything, which is great. I think I've found the man that can actually tame me and make me do what's right and I listen. I don't actually argue back all the time I just sort of go 'ok'."
