Hollyoaks Jeremy Edwards and wife announce pregnancy after tough IVF journey

Jeremy Edwards and his wife Lydia are expecting their second child together after trying for another baby for two years.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2009, are thrilled to be expecting their second baby after a tough IVF journey.

Lydia said they found out she was pregnant in July, and she's due at the end of March.

The lovebirds revealed the exciting news to OK! magazine, and they opened up about the stressful road to pregnancy.

It hasn't been easy for the pair, and soap star Jeremy said they're feeling relieved to be expecting child number two.

Hollyoaks actor Jeremy told the publication: "We're incredibly excited, but the main feeling has been relief. Scarlett was conceived through IVF and so was this baby.

"We feel very blessed, as the process is actually really tough on Lyds."

Scarlett added: "It's very stressful, but we feel so lucky that it worked both times for us on the first attempt.

"It's a lot to go through, especially if it doesn't work, so we're really excited and thankful that this happened."

The couple conceived daughter Scarlett, through IVF, and they turned to the treatment again after trying for a second baby for two and a half years.

Jeremy and Lydia also told the publication that their IVF treatment was "delayed because of coronavirus".

Lydia was supposed to start the treatment in April, but the IVF clinics shut due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

The married couple luckily had a window of opportunity when lockdown ended in June as the clinic had a free space for them.

Lydia explained it was "massively frustrating" as you have to "psych yourself up" for the treatment.

Despite the delay, Lydia added that it was "definitely less scary this time".

The pair confirmed they were both hugely emotional when they finally got their positive pregnancy test.

Lydia said they both cried as Jeremy admitted he "had a little weep".
