James Bye - who plays Martin Fowler in EastEnders - and his wife Victoria have announced that she is pregnant with their third child! The pair already have two children together, five-year-old Edward and two-year-old Louis.

The couple made the announcement in OK! magazine, with Victoria explaining she had surgery for her endometriosis after the birth of Louis before trying for another baby.

After falling pregnant quite quickly with their first two children, Victoria and James struggled to conceive so easily when they began trying to have a baby last summer.

She said, "I fell pregnant really quickly with both Edward and Louis, so when we started trying for our third early last summer, we thought we’d fall pregnant quickly again.

"We tried for a couple of months and nothing happened, then I began suffering from aches and pains in my abdominal area."

She was then diagnosed with endometriosis, and had to undergo two surgeries last year - being told that there was a distinct possibility she may not be able to have any more children.

She said, "We didn’t think we’d be able to have any more children after two surgeries – we thought our baby-making days were over. Month after month, we’d see negative tests.

"But then in June we went to the Soap Awards and I didn’t fancy drinking, which is unlike me. When we got home I did a test and it was positive – we were so surprised!"

James also revealed that the pair are having another son, saying, "I’m over the moon it’s a boy. I play a lot of golf and you tend to go out in a group of four, so I have my future golf team ready now!"

Congrats, guys!
