EastEnders star Kellie Bright has given birth to her third child with husband Paul Stoker.

Kellie previously fired back at criticism for having a baby at the age of 44 [now 45], saying ‘no one would bat an eyelid’ if she was a man.
Speaking to OK! magazine in a previous interview, Kellie noted her husband is several years younger than her and so has the energy to run after the kids.
She said: ‘First of all, if I was a man having my third child at 44, no one would bat an eyelid. Don’t forget my husband is much younger than me.
‘He’s in his thirties, so he’s still running around after the kids, which is great. We met when I was 31 and I didn’t want to jump straight into having kids.’
Kellie said she would have finished having babies at the end of her thirties if she had the chance to map out a perfect life.
