Emmerdale’s Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden on pregnancy: ‘It’s changed our relationship’

Emmerdale stars Matthew Wolfenden and Charley Webb have opened up about their pregnancy - and revealed how it’s changed their relationship

In June, Charley and Matthew revealed that they were expecting their second baby together.

And now, in an exclusive interview with OK! magazine, the Emmerdale couple have opened up about what having another baby means for them as a couple.

Matthew, who plays David Metcalfe in the ITV soap, admitted: "Having a child changes the dynamic of your relationship, but in a nice way.

“You have to become a team, which is a lovely thing."

Charley agreed, adding firmly: "This pregnancy has definitely given us an even stronger bond."

However there’s no denying that the cute couple, who have been together since 2008, have a little bit of pressure on them.

Because their 5-year-old son Buster has made it abundantly clear that he wants a baby brother.

Charley said: ”He's so desperate for a little brother, so we're kind of hoping we get a boy.

"I think there’s something really special about having two of the same. It would be great to have a boy now and then a girl in the future.

“That would be perfect."

Despite this, the real-life Debbie Dingle said that she and Matthew are planning on leaving their baby’s sex a surprise.

We bet that, whether their little bundle of joy is a pink one or a blue one, it will be a welcome addition to this soapstar family!
