'Hollyoaks' star Kirsty-Leigh Porter 6 months pregnant with first child, shares marriage plans with partner Paul
"It’s such a huge thing, so we were both a bit scared at first – but we were really, really happy," Kristy said of the pregnancy.
'Hollyoaks' star Kirsty Leigh Porter has revealed that she is around 6 months pregnant as she showed off her blossoming baby bump.
The 29-year-old actress is expecting the baby with her partner, 41-year-old Paul.
Porter also revealed that the couple had begun to talk about marriage as she shared a beautiful picture, wherein Paul is shown putting a protective hand on her stomach.
The proud parents to be were very happy to share the news of the pregnancy with the rest of the world, with Kirsty sharing, "We were really, really happy. You just feel everything at once," OK Magazine reported.
"With acting, you don’t know when you’re okay to be like, 'Let’s take a year out and do this.' You’re just prepared when it happens, and we’re so happy it’s happened for us now," she continued.
She also opened about her relationship with Paul and said, "Something just clicks. If you’re in a relationship and it’s not working then you find yourself having to try. With him, it’s just not like that. We make an effort but it’s not hard work – it’s just so natural and effortless. I think that’s when you know it’s love because every day you wake up and you’re happy."
Paul also added that he did not believe in "all that 'when you know, you know' stuff" until he met his baby mama Kirsty. Kirsty shared that the pair has no immediate plans of getting married given they have a baby on the way but Paul admitted that he would be willing to whisk her off whenever she was ready.
"We’ve not made any plans as yet, and now we’ve got the baby on the way. We want the baby to be there, but Paul does get in these little love bubbles sometimes, saying, 'I just want to marry you now'," Kirsty shared. While Paul added, "I wanted to go to Gretna Green". When asked whether the pregnancy was planned, Kirsty shared, "No, but we were ready. Everyone’s different, but I think with my job it’s particularly hard to plan."
Kirsty also spoke about the moment when she found out that she was pregnant and said, "It’s such a huge thing, so we were both a bit scared at first – but we were really, really happy. You just feel everything at once. I told my best friend Lisa first and then we told Paul’s mum."
