Emmerdale's Amy Walsh and EastEnders' Toby Alexander-Smith reveal they are having a baby
EMMERDALE star Amy Walsh has revealed she is expecting a baby with her EastEnders actor boyfriend Toby Alexander-Smith.
The pair, who have long kept their relationship under wraps, have revealed they are going to have their first child.
Amy, 34, is best known to Emmerdale viewers as Tracy Metcalfe while Toby, 30, is Albert Square psycho Gray Atkins.
Speaking to OK! Amy said: "We're so excited. It feels as though the way everything happened was meant to be.
"I thought I might struggle with fertility, so for pregnancy to happen quite easily and when I wanted – I was gobsmacked. We feel incredibly lucky."
In fact, Toby was in such shock at seeing the pregnancy kit result that he initially thought she'd bought a fake test
The pair, who met in the audience of Strictly Come Dancing in 2019, wound up pressing fast-forward on their relationship because of lockdown.
They decided to isolate together, moving in after just four months when the government told everyone – including soap stars – to stay at home.
The Sun revealed the pair had become a couple in December, when they turned up at a theatre premiere together.
The new couple looked very cosy as they made their first public appearance on the red carpet at A Christmas Carol in London last year.
Speaking to OK!, Toby explained he has already told his EastEnders co-stars and took Ben Mitchell actor Max Bowden for a drink to give him the happy news.
He said: "I texted Lorraine Stanley as she was actually there the night we met. I also told Linda Henry and Danny Dyer.

"Everyone is over the moon for us. They all said it's such lovely news, especially after the year we've had."
The pair met when they sat together in the front row of Strictly Come Dancing – but cheering on different people.
Toby was there to support Honey Mitchell co-star Emma Barton while Amy was there for Kelvin Fletcher, who went on to win the series that year.
The actress is the sister of Girls Aloud's Kimberley Walsh but also has another famous sibling – Sally, who played Emmerdale's Lyn Hutchinson from 1997 to 2000.
