When is Kellie Bright due and who is she married to? Here's everything you need to know about the EastEnders star as she prepares to welcome baby number three.

Kellie Bright is pregnant with her third child (opens in new tab) and she's been busy juggling her pregnancy while filming EastEnders.

But as her due date draws nearer, Kellie, who plays Linda Carter on the BBC One soap, is expected to have a break from our screens so she can have the birth and enjoy some maternity leave.

But with the storylines currently playing out on Eastenders, with her character also pregnant with an exit story on the horizon, we look at when Kellie Bright is due to give birth (opens in new tab) in real life...

When is Kellie Bright due?

Kellie Bright is expecting her third child to arrive in August 2021. The soap star announced her third pregnancy back in March after a 'rollercoaster IVF journey (opens in new tab)'.

Kellie's first son Freddy, was conceived naturally, while her second child Gene was welcomed via IVF.

After Gene was born, the actress stored three extra embryos. But after failed pregnancy attempts with two of them, the final one became the couple's third child.

Kellie was spotted last month walking her dog Bodhi in Hertfordshire. At the time she looked radiant, dressed in a floating, strappy black dress and matching sandals.

Speaking about the birth of her second child, "It's such a cliché but it really is a love like nothing else. In that moment, you feel like everything you need is right there in that room – apart from Freddy of course.

"I couldn't believe in only seven hours he'd arrived and my whole world had changed again."

And she was equally as excited when she took a third pregnancy test (opens in new tab), "It took my breath away," she said. "I knew it was my last chance, so the fact it was positive was so unbelievably wonderful. A truly wonderful, crazy life moment.”

Meanwhile, on the BBC One soap, Kellie's character Linda is married to Mick Carter, played by Danny Dyer.

In her latest storyline, her character is also expecting a baby too. Recently, the publican's wife, who is carrying Max Branning's baby, was rushed to hospital.

Most recently, during a driving lesson, Mick (Danny Dyer) decides to tell Frankie the paternity of Linda’s (Kellie Bright) baby.
