Corrie star announces her first pregnancy
Catherine Tyldesley, a star in the long-running soap, Coronation Street, has announced that she is expecting her first child.
The announcement was made in an exclusive interview given to Hello! Magazine, where she and her partner, Tom Pitfield, a fitness trainer, posed for photographs. The couple have only been together for nine months. The baby is due to be born in March of next year, and Ms Tyldesley expressed surprise at how quickly she and Mr Pitfield are to become parents.
She said: “If you’d told me that before my next birthday I was going to meet someone as amazing as Tom, the person I want to spend the rest of my life with, and that we were going to be planning for our first baby, I would not have believed you in a million years… it’s crazy.”
Ms Tyldesley, who plays the character Eva Price in the show, claimed that her life has felt as if it were on ‘fast forward’, but that she is not at all daunted by the prospect of becoming a mother. Despite categorising herself as the most indecisive person in the world, she defines her pregnancy as feeling ‘100% right’.
