Lucy Fallon has expressed her excitement for the birth of her first child with footballer boyfriend Ryan Ledson, but additionally admits the experience has been tinged with anxiety after suffering a miscarriage in March.
The previous Coronation Street actress, 26, announced that she is five months along last week and is expecting her bundle of joy next February.

‘“I had pregnancy symptoms and I used to be feeling really unwell. There have been no signs I’d had a miscarriage, in order that made it more of a shock. We just assumed the whole lot was going to be fantastic. Then after every week after they’d done the blood tests and other tests, I went back and so they said I’d miscarried. It was a very strange feeling.’
Yet the soap star revealed the tragic loss brought the couple closer together and made them realise they wanted to begin a family.
Lucy said: ‘That modified things and it made us realise that was definitely what we wanted. Situations like that may really test your relationship. It made us closer and stronger.’

Previously Lucy told OK! magazine: ‘I used to be a bit shocked due to what we went through and I didn’t think it could occur that soon. But we’re made up and it felt like the following stage for us. It felt prefer it was meant to be.’
The actress initially didn’t imagine that she was pregnant again and admitted she FaceTimed her mother in shock after a positive test result before she later told Ryan of the joyous news.
She also revealed that she is being monitored throughout her pregnancy as she’s been classed ‘high risk’ due to her heart-shaped uterus.
While this was not the explanation for her miscarriage in March, it has understandably caused concerns for the star.
While the couple are looking forward to becoming a family of three they’re still coming to terms with their recent loss.
Discussing her ‘traumatising and horrendous’ miscarriage, Lucy explained: ‘Although so many individuals undergo it, you never expect it’s going to occur to you. I had imagined this little one that was going to return into our lives after which they were taken away from me.
‘It was really mentally difficult and really horrible to cope with, but Ryan was so supportive.’
Lucy required surgery after the loss to remove pregnancy tissue but thankfully ‘supportive’ Ryan was capable of be by her side whilst she was in hospital.
In the identical month as her miscarriage, Ryan was also hospitalised as he required surgery on his knee to assist with historic injuries.
While she had not yet announced her miscarriage, Lucy made reference to the couple’s woes in an Instagram post on March 21, sharing a selfie of the pair that she captioned: ‘A tricky couple’a weeks but lucky 2 have u x ❤️’
