Former EastEnders star Martine McCutcheon reveals she’d like another baby

"If it's 'meant for you, it will happen"

She is a very busy woman at the moment, with a new movie coming out, a brand new album and a tour.

But it seems Martine McCutcheon wouldn’t be averse to adding something else to her already very full plate – another baby.

And at 42, she doesn’t appear to be feeling the pressure that some older mums feel.

Speaking to The Mirror, she said: “I’d love another – I wouldn’t worry about being a mum in my mid-40s.

“If you take care of yourself and your body is in great nick and it’s meant for you it will happen.”

After suffering a series of tragic miscarriages, she finally gave birth to son Rafferty in 2015.

Martine also opened up about not taking such good care of herself in the past.

“Looking back, I pushed myself beyond my limits and burnt myself out,” she says.

“There were days I couldn’t get out of bed.”

There were even more tough times for Martine.

She’s battled Lyme disease, been dropped by her record label and declared bankrupt in 2013.
