Hollyoaks actress Chelsee Healey has confirmed she’s expecting her first child with boyfriend Jack Malloy.
Speaking about her pregnancy for the first time to Sunday People, the actress sounded very excited about her upcoming arrival, and couldn’t wait to sing Jack’s praises.
Vouching for his hands-on approach, Chelsee seems delighted to be starting a family with her boyfriend.
‘He’s been amazing. He’s been looking at all the baby websites. He’s my best friend and I wouldn’t want to be going through this with anybody but him.’
Jack, 29, was jailed for 12 months in November 2015 after being found guilty of dangerous driving and driving without insurance.
He was released from prison in March 2016 and Chelsee has been quick to defend the father of her unborn child. At last week’s National Television Awards she commented on how her partner has been learning from his mistakes.
‘Everybody makes mistakes, you learn the hard way and he has.
‘Jack doesn’t like the limelight. He supports what I do but he never signed up for all the attention.’
Chelsee is known for her role as teen mum Goldie McQueen on the popular TV show Hollyoaks, a role that she loves playing and has insisted she wants to still be a part of post pregnancy.
‘I’m definitely coming back to Hollyoaks. One of the first things I said after breaking the baby news was, “I hope I’ve still got a job.” They’ve got a nursery on the show, which is amazing.’
Chelsee’s character is mother to twin boys and one of the louder personalities in the show, which the actress says she can relate to.
‘It’s been so nice to have a character that I can relate to. I used to be just like her when I was younger. She’s just a bit of a wrong-un.’
‘She’s cheeky. She says what she thinks. Back in the day, I probably would have robbed a bottle of wine from the shop, like Goldie. But not any more. You can’t be that little girl forever.’
