New baby arrived on March 13, with the news announced by Emmerdale on Twitter
Emmerdale actress Nicola Wheeler has given birth to a baby boy, just a short while after announcing she was pregnant.
Nicola only confirmed the news of her pregnancy in February.
The star plays Nicola King in the ITV soap, who has been struggling with early menopause.
With the name as yet unknown, we haven’t seen a photo of the new baby either - and considering Nicola’s secrecy over her bump, it’s not too surprising.
She wrote on Twitter for Easter: “Thank you for all your lovely tweets! My boy is a dream. Sleeping is overrated anyway Happy Easter mmmm chocolate egg for breakfast”
