EastEnders' James Bye has revealed that he and his wife Victoria are expecting their fourth child after three years of trying.
The pair shared the happy news on New Year's Day as they confessed they had given up trying for their fourth after desperately hoping for a big family.

In a post the duo shared a snap of themselves holding a scan photo as they wrote in a joint post: "So… we’ve been keeping a little secret… We’re not just welcoming in the new year in 2023…
"I can hardly believe I’m saying it. But we’re welcoming another little one and we’re over the moon."
They continued: "We never thought it was going to happen. We always wanted a big family but after all my endometriosis struggles… heartbreaking miscarriages, seeing fertility doctors & 3 years of ovulation testing & disappointment – we’d honestly given up.
"I remember thinking right. Enough. I gathered up the pram & baby things & gave them all away. We both knew it couldn’t go on, the constant hope."
They explained that things took a turn when their lives became really busy, with Victoria's marathon training, planning for their vow renewal and James' intense Strictly training.
She added: "Would you bloody believe it… somehow life saw all our plans and threw us a curve ball", as she joked she wasn't sure how the pair found the time.
Victoria teased: "Strictly curse you say? Ha – introducing the glitterball baby!"
Although James didn't go on to win the show, he was involved in some incredibly gruelling training sessions which kept him away from home – and away from his busy EastEnders schedule – for a while.
Luckily neither of their busy schedules halted their plans and they were able to welcome the sweet surprise with open arms.
Victoria added that their world has been turned upside down but confessed the pair are "still amazed".
However, after struggling to get pregnant and suffering a miscarriage previously, she explained that she feels she can "never fully let go and enjoy" the pregnancy.
She's had support thrown behind her entirely with pals and famous friends rushing to congratulate them on the happy news.
Strictly co-star Ellie Taylor wrote: "Huge congratulations darlings!!", while Kym Marsh added: "So so happy for you all."
James' Strictly partner Amy Dowden also chirped: "So happy for your beautiful family", as Victoria thanked her for her sweet message.
