EASTENDERS star Ricky Champ revealed that he has a second child with his wife Samantha.
The actor, who plays Stuart Highway on the BBC One series, shared the good news in a tweet featuring a scan.
However, away from Albert Square, Ricky’s home life could no longer be different from his character’s chaotic on-screen dramas.
The 41-year-old TV star lives in his cozy home with his wife Samantha and their four-year-old daughter Beatrix – they are now set to welcome the addition to the family in July.
An ultrasound image was seen resting next to a bouquet of flowers and a wooden sign that read: “Baby Champion. Completion date – July 2022 “.
The couple were quickly congratulated by friends, tweeting: “Fantastic news !! Huge congratulations to all Champions! Xxx “.
Another joked, “Rainey will be happy, lol – congratulations to you and your wife.”
The couple welcomed their little girl Beatrix into the world just over four years ago and now lives in a cozy home in Essex.
Samantha regularly tweets pictures of their family life, including a cute nursery for their daughter.
Entering the cozy living room, you will find a huge plush sofa, an impressive bookcase and a large TV.
The family may have moved in in front of him last night to watch Stewart marry Rainey on EastEnders.
In this episode, Stewart is trapped in his car after running out of battery, preventing him from opening the door.
As a result, he and Rainey got married: she was outside, and he was sitting in the driver’s seat – even managing to share a kiss by kissing through the window pane.
Meanwhile, upstairs in the Champs house, Beatrix has a bedroom suitable for a princess, with warm-colored walls and bright curtains around the bed.
There are two fluffy cats in the house, which Samantha often photographs.
Before joining EastEnders in 2018 as the nemesis of Mick Carter (Danny Dyer), Ricky was best known for his role as Paul Parker on the sitcom He and She.
He also appeared in Game of Thrones in Season 6 as Gatins.
In 2016, he made a cameo appearance on an episode of the ITV sitcom Plebs.
Ricky is no stranger to the big screen either, appearing in Paddington II as a prison warden.
