It seems playing pregnant Eva Price on Coronation Street has been making Catherine Tyldesley feel broody!
The actress is already a mum to son, Alfie, three, but has said she’d like more children in the future.
And as her character prepares to leave Weatherfield, perhaps this year will be the time she and her husband, Tom Pitfield, decide to add to their brood.
Catherine, 34, told OK! magazine: “I think four is very ambitious, but I would love another one at some point.”
The soap star said if she does become pregnant again she would do hypnobirthing as she found it really helped her last time round.
“I did it and I loved it. I found it really helped at the start. I meditated most days during the pregnancy and found it really useful. That’s great for mum and baby,” she said.
Catherine added that she’s feeling “emotional” about soon leaving Corrie after seven years on the soap.
It was her decision to go but Catherine said she’ll be an “absolute wreck” when she films her final scenes.
At the time her departure was announced last December, she said: “Coronation Street has been a dream job for me which is why this was such a difficult decision to leave.
“Eva has been such fun to play over the last seven years, and who knows, one day she might storm the cobbles of Weatherfield again.
“In the meantime I’m excited about the future, new acting projects, and spending time with my family.”
It is not yet known how Eva will leave but it could be linked to the promised “explosive” exit of Shayne Ward, who plays her ex, Aidan.
She is currently secretly pregnant with his child but has made a deal to give it up for adoption to Toyah Battersby once born.
Catherine is expected to go for more serious drama roles in the future, as well as spending more time with Tom, 30, Alfie and any potential new arrivals!
She and Tom, a personal trainer, married four years ago, after welcoming Alfie.
Catherine told Hello! magazine that she couldn’t believe how much her life changed for the better in such a short space of time.
She said after they became engaged: “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.”

She added: “It’s like everything has gone fast forward, but it’s not remotely scary. It just feels 100 per cent right.”
