EastEnders star Kellie Bright, 44, pregnant with third child after 'roller coaster' IVF journey

EASTENDERS star Kellie Bright is pregnant again aged 44.

The star, who plays Linda Carter in the soap, is having a third child with husband Paul Stocker after what she called a "rollercoaster" IVF journey.

Kellie and husband Paul Stocker, 38, already have sons Freddy, nine, and Gene, four.

The soap favourite told OK! magazine it had been a "roller coaster" getting pregnant again but said she'd "always had an itch" for another child.

Kellie welcomed her first son naturally aged 34, before having IVF in her second pregnancy.

After Gene was born, Kellie stored three extra embryos. After failed pregnancy attempts with two of them, the final embryo became the couple's third child.


Kellie told OK!: "The first two embryos didn’t work.

"This baby inside me now was the last one we had – the last chance of a pregnancy, because at 44 we were not going through IVF again.

"I believe it was meant to be. But those three months, between September and November, were a real roller-coaster."

She explained that the pair decided to try for a third child at the end of 2019 but was dealt a devastating blow by the coronavirus outbreak.
