Choosing to keep her romance with Adrian out of the spotlight, Hayley’s adorable announcement came as a huge surprise to most of her followers.
Taking to Twitter on Easter Monday, she wrote: “EXCITING NEWS TWEET!!
“I’m so pleased to tell you all… I’m expecting my first child with my wonderful boyfriend Adrian!!
“I’ve always wanted to be a mum and didn’t think I could have children. And now, at the ripe old age of 42 - I’M PREGNANT! We couldn’t be happier. ”
Hayley - who played Del Dingle in Emmerdale for two years - has previously spoken out about her desire to have children, despite being told she could be infertile.
While dating actor and comedian Marcus Brigstocke in 2014, she told The Mirror: "My body feels 37 but I still feel 21. I sometimes forget that I'm going to be 40. It would be lovely to have kids in the future but for now my main concentration is my work."
Confessing she’s “not scared of nappies or screaming babies”, Hayley added: "Not many of my friends have settled down either. I'm a workaholic. It's always work, work, work, I can't switch it off."
