Hollyoaks star Bronagh Waugh has announced she is pregnant with her first child.
She announced the pregnancy with a Instagram post of a series of photos showing off her blossoming baby bump.
Wishing fans a happy International Woman's Day she captioned the post: "Over Lockdown I’ve been busy preparing for my next role (spoiler alert: it’s pretty major – I’m going to be a Ma!)
"Women’s bodies are incredible with what they can do and what they withstand. Absolute miracle machines and strong as an ox!"
She continued: "So Happy International Women’s Day to all of the incredible women out there doing their thing; surviving, thriving, coping and carrying on. You make the World go round & I salute each & every one of yiz!"
She thanked her photographer too, writing: "Big love & thanks to the absolutely brilliant @stewartbywater who did this Zoom shoot to mark this moment for me (as I haven’t been able to see any of my friends and family for the whole pregnancy!!)
"He’s one of the kindest, most creative, gentlest souls who made me feel strong, empowered & beautiful. So Happy International Women’s Day to him too & all the brilliant men in our life who help raise us up, support us with solidarity & love us."
Bronagh is in a relationship with Richard Peacock.
The couple publicly revealed that they would not marry until Northern Ireland made gay marriage legal in support of Bronagh's mother who is gay.
She said: "I’m getting married in Somerset and we’re having a big party but we’ll not do the legal bit until my mum can, until everyone in Northern Ireland can."
She continued: "It is a human right to be able to marry the person you love. I cannot bear any group of people in our society to be treated differently.
"To allow one part of the community to get married but not another, because of their sexuality, blows my mind.
"It doesn't harm anybody. It's about love."
The lovebirds were due to be married legally last year but their wedding was delayed by COVID-19 regulations.
Bronagh is best known for her roles as Jamie Dornan's wife on The Fall, Derry Girls, Unforgotten and Cheryl Brady in Hollyoaks.
