EastEnders actor Kellie Bright has welcomed her third child with her husband Paul Stocker.
The 45-year-old, who plays Linda Carter in the BBC One soap, confirmed the news with OK! on Friday (September 10).
Sharing the happy news, Kellie said: “We’re thrilled to announce the safe arrival of the latest addition to our family. Mum and baby are doing well.”
Kellie and Paul are also parents to sons Freddy, nine, and Gene, four.
Their new baby’s gender and name have not yet been revealed.
Kellie has shared an exclusive black and white, and very sweet, photo with the publication consisting of a baby hand gripping an adult finger.
The couple, who married in 2014, has previously opened up on the IVF journey to conceive their new arrival.
The star gave birth to her first son naturally at 38, but the couple struggled to conceive afterwards so decided to use IVF for their second child.
Kellie told OK! when announcing her pregnancy back in March: “So this baby inside me now was the last one we had – the last chance of pregnancy, because at 44 we were not going through IVF again.

“I believe it was meant to be.”
The star’s pregnancy was written into EastEnders, as her character Linda is currently pregnant with Max Branning’s (Jake Wood) baby, after the two characters had an affair last year.
