‘Doctors said I wouldn’t be able to conceive again!

Jennifer Ellison has revealed she is pregnant with her third child.

The 30-year-old actress admitted that her pregnancy came as a bit of a shock after doctors claimed she wouldn’t be able to conceive.

Jennifer and her husband Robbie Tickle – are parents to sons Bobby,4, and Harry, 11 months – revealed their shock but pleased that they will be adding to their brood.


Speaking to OK! Magazine, Jennifer explained: ‘I have really bad ovarian cysts and the doctors said I wouldn’t be able to conceive again – then this happens!’

The former Brookside actress revealed that she is already six months into her pregnancy and is eagerly waiting to find out the gender of her child.

She added that she was hoping that she would give birth to another boy.

Jennifer said: ‘My friends are throwing me a ‘gender reveal’ baby shower, it’s where you cut into a cake and the sponge will either be pink or blue, and that’s how you find out the sex.’

While the theatre star is excited for her new arrival she did admit she will take a longer break before having any more children.

She joked: ‘ I’ll wait four or five years before I have any more – I’ll get back in shape, get my varicose veins done and sort myself out!’

Jennifer was seen showcasing her recent two stone weightloss earlier this year and she is confident that she will be able to get back in shape after the baby’s birth.

She stated: ‘I trained before and lost weight so I can do it again. But, so what? I love being a mum – there are more important things to worry about.’

The dance school owner managed to get back to a size 10 after starting the Cambridge Weight Plan, which restricted her to eating just 800 calories a day.
