Patsy Palmer gives birth to a son

EastEnders star welcomes her fourth baby – a boy named Bertie

Actress Patsy Palmer has become a mum for the fourth time after giving birth to a baby boy named Bertie.


The EastEnders star went into labour a month early, and has spent the last few weeks in hospital in Brighton being monitored. However, her newborn son is “healthy and well” and will stay in hospital for the next few weeks in Brighton.

“Patsy’s waters broke a few weeks ago and she was rushed to hospital. To be on the safe side she stayed in. Bertie arrived last Wednesday and the family are all over the moon,” a source told The Sun.

Patsy, 38, is also mum to son Fenton, 9, and daughter Emilia, 8, with her husband Richard Merkell as well as to 18-year-old son Charley, from her previous relationship with boxer Alfie Rothwell.
