Roxanne Pallett is pregnant with her first child at the age of 38.

The Emmerdale actress, who recently said she was "ridiculed and vilified" and understands why Meghan Markle fled the UK, announced the news to Sunday Mirror.

The soap star explained that she feels "like the luckiest woman in the world" as she prepares to welcome her first child with husband Jason Carrion in the autumn in New York City, where she lives.

Reflecting on how much her life has changed since she left her life in the entertainment industry behind and quit social media, she explained: “I now know what ‘happy ever after’ feels like."

Roxanne continued: “To have such a beautiful life here and be blessed with the most incredible husband and our little baba on the way… my mum’s already knitting for England.

“My husband is driving round at all hours getting me pizza and cookies. We’re in a bubble of excitement.”

OK! Online has approached Roxanne's representative for further comment.
