Martine McCutcheon Announces First Pregnancy

The actress and singer, Martine McCutcheon, has announced that she is three and a half months pregnant with her first child.

It is good news for the 38-year old who had begun to fear that she would never be able to become a mother. She has been married to singer-songwriter, Jack McManus, for nearly two years, and had been ill for the past seven years suffering with ME, a condition that causes chronic fatigue, which in turn led to a severe depression. Her illnesses meant Ms McCutcheon was unable to work, leading her to be declared bankrupt in February 2013. Admitting that the past year had been a terrible time for her and her husband, she said that friends had provided incredible support, and her pregnancy had brought the couple joy.

She said: “We'd always said that if we were fortunate to be blessed with a child, that would be wonderful, but we were very aware that it's not a given. As a woman in her late 30s who's experienced health problems, I thought I might have to accept that it wasn't a path my life was going to take, but it would have been a great sadness in our lives if that had been the case."

The baby is due on February 12th 2015.
