Kelvin Fletcher's wife 'following him around'
Kelvin Fletcher's wife has been "following him around" in case she goes into labour.
The 'Emmerdale' star's spouse Elizabeth Marsland has become his "side-kick" over the past few days because she wants to make sure he's there when she gives birth to their little one.
Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Wednesday (10.08.16), Elizabeth said: "I've become Kelvin's side kick in case anything happens. I'm just following him around."
The 32-year-old actor - who appeared on the show as a guest - added: "It's our first one, we don't know what it is yet, we're excited to find out if we're having a boy or a girl."
The couple announced they were expecting their first child together last month after they conceived on their wedding night last November.
Kelvin said at the time: "It was the weekend of our wedding. We're pretty sure Liz fell pregnant on our wedding night. We then flew to Rome for three nights. Little did we know, there were three of us on our honeymoon! The day I found out Liz was pregnant and our wedding day were the most amazing days of my life."
The couple have been together for over 10 years but wanted to wait until they were in their 30s to start a family because they wanted to enjoy their 20s together.
Meanwhile, Kelvin is reportedly bowing out of his role of Andy Sugden in the soap after 20 years in order to start a new career as a rally driver.
A source said recently: "Kelvin is a soap legend and will be sorely missed by 'Emmerdale' and viewers. Bosses have managed to keep him leaving top secret but now the cat is out of the bag."
