The actress and her husband Ben Stacey turned to IVF after a miscarriage nine months ago.

She told Hello! Magazine: "It was an amazing feeling, crazy. Literally 48 hours before I started injections, I was pregnant.

"I had done so many pregnancy tests during the eight months we'd been trying hard for a baby that I fully expected it to come back negative as it always did."

The 37-year-old star had gone through the pain of the miscarriage at the same time as her character, Doctor Jac Naylor, was giving birth on screen in the hospital drama.
