Is Tracy Metcalfe in Emmerdale pregnant in real life?

Yes, Amy Walsh announced the happy news in September 2021, telling OK! magazine she feels 'incredibly lucky'.

Amy, 34, was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovaries when she was 20 and was worried she would find it hard to fall pregnant.

"It feels as though the way everything happened was meant to be," she said. "I thought I might struggle with fertility, so for pregnancy to happen quite easily and when I wanted – I was gobsmacked. We feel incredibly lucky..."

Amy’s co-star Anna Nightingale is also expecting a baby, and the pair have previously posed for a sweet bump photo together.

The actress wrote at the time: "It's out! This gorgeous lady is expecting too! #BumpTwins".

Who is Amy Walsh’s boyfriend?

Toby is best known for playing murderer Grey Atkins in EastEnders.

He and Amy first went public with their relationship last Christmas when they were pictured on the red carpet at the opening night of A Christmas Carol in London.

According to reports, the pair met in 2019 when they were both in the audience of Strictly Come Dancing.

Amy was there to support Emmerdale co-star Kelvin Fletcher, while Toby was cheering on co-star Emma Barton.

The couple were forced to move quickly and started living together after just four months of dating so they could isolate together when the coronavirus lockdown first started.

While the couple like to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, Amy previously told the Loose Women panel that some people find it hard to separate Toby from his evil EastEnders character Grey.

She said: “He’s been quite lucky but you do get a bit. It’s more online than anything else.

“But I just always say it’s because you’re so good, you’re doing a good job and that’s all that matters.”
