Emmerdale's Matthew Wolfenden thinks he and Charley Webb are expecting a boy

He's from a long line of Wolfenden men

As Emmerdale's Matthew Wolfenden and Charley Webb await the arrival of baby number three, Matthew is convinced he knows what gender their little one will be.

The couple already have two sons - Buster, nine, and Bowie, three, and while the actor said he and his wife don't know what their third child will be he's got an inkling it's another boy.

Speaking on today's Loose Women (Monday June 17), Matthew said: "We've got one on the way, and we don't know if it's a boy or girl."

When asked whether he would like to have a girl this time, Matthew replied that although as he already has two boys a girl would be amazing "it's the old cliché, as long as they're healthy."

He then went on to reveal: "I come from a long line of boys, and there's four Wolfenden cousins and we've got seven grandchildren, they're all boys. It's not looking likely, but who knows?"

The David Metcalfe actor also said although Charley has had a horrible pregnancy this time, she's actually a really big fan of giving birth!

"This one's been particularly brutal," he explained. "She's been ill from the get-go and it's not relented at all.

"But she does enjoy giving birth. She's been sick since she found out and we've got six weeks or so to go."

The actress, who plays Debbie Dingle in the ITV soap, has been open on social media about how hard this pregnancy has been .

Charley, 31, told her 448,000 followers last week that she was exhausted.

In a brutally honest tweet, she said: "I am SO tired. It gets to 4pm and I'm done. I forget just how tiring being pregnant is. And then I do it again and remember."

And earlier this month, Charley revealed she's in agony after being diagnosed with a debilitating pelvic condition.

In an interview with OK! Magazine, she said she's been suffering from morning sickness and symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD), a condition that causes excessive movement of the pubic symphysis, as well as associated pain, possibly because of a misalignment of the pelvis.

Meanwhile, on screen, Matthew has a big week coming up as Maya Stepney goes on trial for grooming David's stepson Jacob Gallagher.

David will be seen going to therapy to deal with everything that's happened.

When the panel of Andrea McLean, Coleen Nolan, Brenda Edwards and Jane Moore asked him whether the storyline has made him change his approach to parenting, Matthew told how he was making sure he's sons were safe online.

"With young children you're always aware," he said. "My oldest boy is nine and they're working from iPads at school, so we went into the school and talked about online safety.

"This has not necessarily come from Emmerdale, but it's making people take notice."

He continued: "There's games for kids where you can have an open chat with anyone, so we make sure with Buster that we recognise who he is having a chat with."
