Joy for soap star as she announces her pregnancy!

It has been announced that Emmerdale star Nicole Wheeler is expecting her first baby. Though fans of the soap will have suspected that the actress is expecting, it has only now been officially confirmed.

Nicola, who plays Nicola King on the soap, is currently on maternity leave, meaning that her final scenes before departure have already been filmed – we can’t wait to see how she leaves!

The actress isn’t the only one who kept her pregnancy quiet on set as it was only revealed last month that Emma Atkins (Charity) was eight months along in her pregnancy – something fans had been speculating for a while.

Congratulations to Nicola on her wonderful news!
