Kellie Bright showed off her blossoming baby bump while out on a stroll with her beloved dog.

The 44 year old, who is well known for her portrayal of Linda Carter on popular soap EastEnders, was photographed heading out in Hertfordshire wearing a loose-fitting black dress.

The flowing midi number featured a v-neck with thin straps alongside a cinched waist that sat above her growing baby bump.

Actress Kellie, who announced her third pregnancy exclusively with OK! magazine, teamed the look with a pair of black sandals and she carried a turquoise bag with yellow polka dots on it, adding a pop of colour to her look.

The blonde actress, who recently called for social media to be banned as it "breeds resentment", styled her mane up into a tight bun and kept her make up to a minimum as she simply wore mascara and pink lipstick for the outing.

Kellie appeared happy and relaxed as she held onto a green lead while her furry friend pottered on in front of her.

It comes as the soap star recently warned that IVF isn't "magic" as she discussed her journey to getting pregnant with her third child with husband Paul Stocker.

They are already parents to sons Freddie, nine, and Gene, four.

When asked if she would have stopped trying for more children if Gene was conceived naturally, Kellie explained to OK!: “I think so, yes. But I knew when we had those frozen embryos, we had to give it a go. My friend said I’m a trailblazer! But I’m not.

“Plus, I’m using a far younger egg. It was frozen when I was 39, so I’m a 44 year old vessel for that egg.

“My risks would’ve been much higher if I’d had IVF from scratch now.

“I don’t want women seeing people like me having babies in my forties and thinking, ‘Oh, if they can do it, I have loads of time!’ It might be OK… but it might not.

“I hate the term ‘geriatric mother’ for pregnancies over 35 but there’s a reason for the label. I don’t want to be seen as a woman with a magic womb.”

Kellie had two embryos implanted before she fell pregnant with the third.

She revealed: “The first two embryos didn’t work. So this baby inside me now was the last one we had – the last chance of a pregnancy, because at 44 we were not going through IVF again.

“I believe it was meant to be. But those three months, between September and November, were a real roller-coaster.”
