After inviting OK! along to her baby shower, Amy Walsh has opened up about deciding on a name for her little one.
And as the baby is due to arrive around Christmas, the Emmerdale actress says she and her partner Toby-Alexander Smith have considered some festive names.
Amy, who plays Tracy Metcalfe in the ITV soap, tells OK!: “We’ve tried to think of ones we like that we could use because of that and there’s none that really stick. But something could come up!
“There might be something that triggers us or a Christmas film we watch and we hear a name."
“We might call it Kevin if I go into labour while watching Home Alone!” she adds.
Amy also admits she and her EastEnders actor beau have hit some bumps when it comes to choosing a name, as some of the monikers on their list have been taken by friends.
“I’ve found when you make a decision about a name you then end up seeing it everywhere," she explains.
“I went to a wedding recently and the couple revealed they’re getting the puppy and said the name, and it was one of the names on our list! So we can’t them the baby it now.”
However, Amy says the pair do have two names they’ve been set on from the start, although she confesses recently she has found herself being “bored” of them.
She says: “We have one for each which we were set on before we were even pregnant. They’re from our lockdown walks when we were talking about our baby names.
“We’ve even called the bump those names, one day the girl name, the next the boy name, but then recently I’ve been like, ‘I feel a bit bored of these names!’ So we’re starting to discuss them again.”
Amy and Toby, who plays Gray Atkins in BBC One's EastEnders, revealed they were expecting their first child together back in September.
They told OK! it was “magical” to discover the news and added: “We’re so excited to be parents.”
Amy continued of finding out she was expecting: "It feels as though the way everything happened was meant to be. I thought I might struggle with fertility, so for pregnancy to happen quite easily and when I wanted – I was gobsmacked. We feel incredibly lucky."
