The reason Coronation Street’s Kate Connor is suddenly so desperate to have a baby has finally been revealed.
Viewers have been confused since waitress Kate developed a bizarre sudden urge to procreate despite never having mentioned babies before.
Now actress Faye Brookes has revealed the heartbreaking reality behind Kate’s desperation.
It’s all to do with her tragic brother Aidan Connor’s sudden suicide and Kate’s struggle to cope with the loss.
Faye told the Daily Star Sunday: “She has no outside perspective on it. It’s a part of the delayed reaction of losing her brother.
“She’s become fixated on her happy ending because she feels she can make up for not being able to look after her brother by looking after and caring for a baby.”
She added: “Kate has completely got her head in the clouds and has not picked up on any reticence from Rana, which is a bit worrying as they are soulmates and you would think she would be sensitive to her feelings.
“But this shows how obsessed Kate is with this plan – for all the wrong reasons.”
Viewers have seen how desperate Kate hatched a strange plan to have a baby with her cousin’s fiancee, Robert Preston, before he pulled out when Michelle decided she might want a baby after all.
Spoilers have revealed how Kate will resort to trying to seduce lawyer Adam Barlow in an effort to fall pregnant.
But that will see her relationship with girlfriend Rana Nazir collapse under the weight of Kate’s obsession.
However Faye has reassured Kana’s fans that the couple isn’t over for good.
She added: “The love is still there. They have both done things wrong and will be able to find a way to move on from this.
“I feel they will conquer all and will last. Watch this space. This is not the end for Kana!”
