Her close friend Kate Ritchie, who played Sally Fletcher on the Australian soap, celebrated Marilyn's news and the pair's 25-year-long friendship with an adorable 1992 throwback snap on Instagram.
"Congratulations to my very dear old friend @emilysymons_ and her partner Paul on the announcement that they will be welcoming a baby into the world this year.. Just the best news ever! Babies are precious and so are old friends #precious #baby #whatabeautifulgift" she wrote, posting an old photo of herself and Marilyn looking VERY fresh-faced altogether!
Emily is currently still working on Home and Away after taking a break back in 1999 to appear on the British soap Emmerdale. Kate played Sally Fletcher from 1998 – 2008, returning for just eight weeks in 2013 as part of the soap's 25th anniversary celebrations.
We're delighted to see the pair are still friends – surely they could have gotten Alf Stewart in for the photo too?!
