Emmerdale's Nicola Wheeler announces she's pregnant

Fans of the show have seen Nicola's character get pregnant, and now she has announced she will be a mum very soon.

The Emmerdale actress - whose on-screen character Nicola King found out she was expecting in December last year - took to her Twitter account to confirm the news and revealed she only has a “couple of weeks” until she gives birth.

She tweeted: “Thanks for all your congratulations still got a couple of weeks until arrives. Unless he/she gets impatient”.

According to the Daily Express Online, the 40-year-old actress is to start her maternity leave and has already filmed her leaving scenes on the ITV soap, but it is not yet known how King - who later found out she lost her baby - will depart the village.

Wheeler’s on-screen brother Matthew Bose - who plays Paul Lambert - was one of the first to take to Twitter to congratulate the blonde beauty on her news ahead of his return to the soap.

He tweeted: “Congratulations to my beautiful pretendy sister Nicola #baby”.

A message on the official Emmerdale Instagram account also congratulated Wheeler and confirmed Matthew will be back on the show soon.

A message attached to a picture of the pair read: “Congrats on Nicola Wheeler’s pregnancy...we can't wait to ask onscreen brother Mathew Bose what he thinks when he returns! #FamilyPhoto #BabyTalk#Emmerdale #backstage”


Wheeler also admitted she cannot wait for the 41-year-old actor's return to the programme.

She wrote: “Very excited for @mathewbose return to @emmerdale we all need a bit of Lambert love in our lives”.
