Emmerdale star Sophie Powles welcomes first child

Emmerdale star Sophie Powles has revealed that she’s welcomed her first child with partner Mark Waters.

The actress, who played Holly Barton on the ITV soap, first informed her followers that she was pregnant back in June, posting a photo of herself on a beach with her bump on display.

‘And so the adventure of us three begins,’ she wrote on Instagram at the time.

Two months later, Sophie, 32, has revealed that she’s since welcomed a baby girl named Marli Ocean Waters.

The soap star took to social media, sharing a snap of the child’s feet, telling her fans that it’s been almost a month since she gave birth.

‘Nearly a month ago our little girl joined us,’ she said. ‘Marli Ocean Waters you are Magic.’


Dad Mark shared the very same picture on his own social media, writing: ‘Marli Ocean Waters, I can’t believe I get to be your dad.’

‘I will spend the rest of my life, showing you how much I love you Your Mum is pretty cool too.’


Sophie’s friends were quick to comment, with former Coronation Street star Shobna Gulati (Sunita Alahan) writing: ‘I love this you are magic mummy’

Pixie Lott commented with four heart eyes emojis, while Emmerdale star Ash Palmisciano added two heart emojis.

Sophie is best known for her work on Emmerdale as Holly Barton, a role she portrayed between 2009 and 2012, before returning for a short stint in 2016.

Holly battled drug addiction throughout her time in the village, and the character died in tragic scenes, when mum Moira (Natalie J Robb) found her in bed, and was unable to wake her up. 

It was a story development that took viewers by shock, as it had not been announced prior to airing.
