Emmerdale couple’s Home Alone-style baby announcement

The soapland couple are expecting their second child in December


Announcing that you’re pregnant on social media is never easy. Do you go for a funny Instagram picture? Change your profile picture to the scan photo? Or just do an old-fashioned ‘I’m pregnant!’ status.


Well, Emmerdale couple Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden decided to get creative with some chalk and blackboards for their announcement. Matthew, who plays David Metcalfe in the ITV soap, holds up a sign that reads ‘Baby #2’ and an arrow pointing to Charley’s tummy.

Meanwhile, full comic genius goes to their son Buster, 5, who does his best Kevin from Home Alone impression next to a sign that reads: ‘only child expiring… Dec 2015’.


The couple haven’t revealed their baby’s sex – but Matthew has revealed Buster is “desperate for a little brother” when he spoke on This Morning.

Charley, who plays Debbie Dingle in the show, tweeted: ” “Here we go again #babynumber2.”

The couple started dating in 2008 but split in August 2013. They’ve recently reconciled after staying friends.

Congratulations both!
