Pregnant Coronation Street Actress Catherine Tyldesley Gives Her Growing Baby Bump A 'Last Minute Cuddle'

Pregnant Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley gives her growing bump a 'last minute cuddle' as she waits for the arrival of her first baby.


In an intimate photo posted to Twitter, the 31-year-old – who plays Eva Price in the ITV soap - caressed her tummy while relaxing on her sofa at home.

She captioned the image: "Last min bump cuddles before me and @rebeccagreen21 head out :-) #blessthisbambino."

Catherine is engaged to personal trainer Tom Pitfield and has made it clear she's been looking after herself with exercise and a sensible diet during her pregnancy.

She recently tweeted: "Baby is obsessed with Kale chips :-) good lad."

In a recent interview with OK!, Catherine defended her whirlwind romance with fiancé Tom Pitfield.

She said: "No one's been shocked at how quickly we've moved because people can see how happy we are.

"People say when you meet The One you just know. I've thought, it doesn't happen like that, but three months in I knew. We never argue. He makes me laugh until I cry!"

Tom proposed to Catherine during a Venice getaway eight months into their romance.

Catherine revealed: "We found ourselves on a bridge looking over Venice, near St Marks Square, which was quiet and perfect. I'd taken the ring with us, which I'd wrapped up like a parcel. I got it out and said, 'I want you to open this'."

Catherine burst out crying before accepting Tom's proposal.

She said: "I couldn't stop crying and said yes through my tears!"
