Love Actually star Martine McCutcheon has announced that she is expecting her first child.

Speaking to Hello magazine, McCutcheon explained that she and her husband Jay McManus has thought they may never be able to have kids, "We'd always said that if we were fortunate to be blessed with a child, that would be wonderful, but we were very aware that it's not a given.

"As a woman in her late 30s who's experienced health problems, I thought I might have to accept that it wasn't a path my life was going to take, but it would have been a great sadness in our lives if that had been the case."

The 38-year-old star's baby boy is due on Valentine's Day 2015.
