EastEnders’ Louisa Lytton cradles baby bump while walking dog in spring snap

EastEnders actress Louisa Lytton cradled her growing baby bump in the spring sunshine after revealing the Covid-19 pandemic laid waste to her dream wedding.

The 32-year-old star lovingly cradled her bump while she took her pooch on a walk to soak up the spring sunshine.

She looked summer-ready in a brightly coloured floral maxi-dress, which showed off a dusting of freckles on her shoulders.

Louisa paired the dress with a comfy pair of trainers and a bright yellow headband, along with some chic sunglasses.

The brunette bombshell captioned the snap: "First born and unborn."

Her co-stars flocked to the comments section to show Louisa their love, including Jessie Wallace who plays Kat.

Milly Zero, who plays Dotty Cotton on the BBC soap, also popped in to say: "OMG! The baby has grown so much! Absolutely glowing."

Louisa has played Ruby Allen in EastEnders on-and-off since 2005.

This will be her first baby with fiancé Ben Bhavra.

The lovebirds originally got together back in 2017, and Ben proposed on Louisa’s 30th birthday in 2019.

But she confirmed on Loose Women last month that the wedding had been cancelled due to pandemic restrictions.

"We fell pregnant and now, officially, our wedding could go ahead but it’s too late now!" she said. "So it’s all gone out the window."

She had already chosen the perfect dress for her big day.

The couple moved in together last year, and got stuck in renovating the property during lockdown.

She shared snaps of her chic kitchen over on Instagram, including some ultra-modern geometric chairs and chrome counters.

Louisa also shared an adorable snap of her and Ben sitting in the back of a removal van packed with their stuff, with her hand going around his neck while they both grin at the camera, looking relaxed.

She explained to the Loose Women that being pregnant while filming Ruby’s storyline about faking a pregnancy ahead of an endometriosis diagnosis was "a strange time".

"I sort of found out I was pregnant and knew what I was going back to work to film so I guess I was more stressed than I would have been," she admitted.

"I told the bosses that this endometriosis storyline was very important to me, and I didn’t want it to be put on hold," Louisa told the Loose Women.

"It’s the job, isn’t it?"

Louisa originally announced she was expecting in a sweet Mother’s Day post, showing fans the card she sent to her own mum in the touching clip.

"There’s a baby on the way!" the card proclaimed.
