Hannah Waterman Baby : Yes, Huw's The Daddy

Hannah Waterman Hannah Waterman has spilled the beans about her mystery baby and admitted Huw's the daddy!

Speculation had been rife that her onetime EastEnders co-star Huw Higginson was the father of her unborn child, and Hannah has now confirmed it in an interview with Closer magazine.

Huw reportedly left his wife of 15 years last year. They had two daughters of nine and 15. Hannah explains this as him becoming 'a bit unstuck in his personal life'. As a result, he moved in with her, where their relationship escalated from friendship to romance.

The actress, 35, says she chose to keep her pregnancy out of the public eye because of all the media attention her private life has previously been subjected to. She said:

'I'd been through the mill at the beginning of 2010, I didn't want everyone picking over my personal life again, so we just told close family. But I'm talking to Closer today to set the record straight.'

Hannah revealed she is six months pregnant.

So, what do you think of this latest installment in the Hannah Waterman saga? Do you think a relationship can last the distance when a baby comes along so soon?
