Didn't she look beautiful!?
You’ll probably recognise Rachel Adedeji from either The X Factor back in 2009, or more recently starring as Lisa Loveday in Hollyoaks.
And fans of the 26 year old were thrilled to hear that she is due to give birth to her first child on December 27 with her husband Jason Finnegan.
Announcing the news on Instagram two months ago, Rachel wrote: ‘Delighted to say that Jason and I are expecting our first child! Baby Adedeji will be due 27th December Xx 👶🏾 #PregnancyAnnouncement #BabyNews [sic]’
The brunette beauty has praised the long running Channel 4 soap’s wardrobe team for disguising her pregnancy so well for the first five months when it was kept secret from the public.
She explained: ‘Lisa is a very vibrant character and doesn’t wear many clothes! But the team has been brilliant in allowing new clothes to fit Lisa’s personality… Instead of hot pants and a bra, it’s hot pants and a loose top!’
The star has also told Closer about what a support her friend and Hollyoaks co-star Jen Metcalfe has been to her: ”Jen has been amazing – I couldn’t ask for a better friend. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I was like, ‘Jen, what do I do?!”
She added: ‘She’s an amazing mum and seeing her and Greg with Daye is just adorable. We’ve been talking about holidaying together once my baby arrives.’
And yesterday, Rachel completely wowed us all when she showed off her beautiful, blossoming baby bump on the red carpet at the Pride Of Britain Awards… And she looked amazing in a peplum, strapless white dress that showed off her curves wonderfully.
