EastEnders star Natalie Cassidy announces her pregnancy

Expectant actress reveals conception shock after battling with PCOS and her sensible cravings

Former EastEnders star Natalie Cassidy has revealed that she is 12-weeks pregnant. The 26-year-old actress and her boyfriend Adam Cottrell, 30, are thrilled with the baby news.


After spending years battling with her weight in the public eye and causing controversy with her fitness DVD a few years back which saw her shrink to a tiny size 6, Natalie is balancing her pregnancy cravings!

“I can’t get enough of chicken, mayonnaise and sweetcorn sandwiches! But I’ve been eating healthily and not been noshing down four cream cakes in one sitting and claiming I’m eating for two,” she revealed to Closer magazine.


The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant also revealed that she was shocked she conceived so easily after only trying for a few months, due to years of suffering polycystic ovaries (PCOS). “I wanted children so much, it was a worry. I came off my contraception in November but I never thought I’d get pregnant so quickly!”
