Rhian Sugden is pregnant. she is finally expecting her first baby with husband Oliver Mellor
The former Celebrity Big Brother star, 37, revealed she is expecting her first child with husband Oliver Mellor, 42, on Sunday and is already 16 weeks pregnant.
In gorgeous snaps of the pair, the couple, who tied the knot in 2018, announced the joyful news after going through eight gruelling rounds of IVF over six years.
Sharing the news to Hello! magazine, Rhian said: ‘We’re over the moon, our lives are going to change so much, which is very exciting.’
The Coronation Street star added: ‘I can’t wait for the baby to be born, I’ll pump my fist to the sky and shout, “‘I’m a dad!” The couple, who are expecting their baby May 4, admitted there were times they feared they would never be able to get pregnant.
Rhian had difficulty getting pregnant due to her low egg count and perimenopausal hormone levels and were only given just a three percent chance of conceiving naturally.
The couple turned to IVF and went through seven rounds over the course of six years, costing an enormous £130,000.
But just before they gave up, they give the treatment one last time and took a pregnancy test nine days in – where she was greeted with the incredible news.
