Lucy Benjamin is a mommy for a second time! The former EastEnders actress reveals in an exclusive interview with Hello! Magazine that she has recently given birth to her second baby, a daughter named Rosie,'
Lucy tells the magazine that the last few years - during which she met her husband, Richard Taggart. got married and almost immediately gave birth to eldest daughter Bessie – had been an unexpected whirlwind.
"If someone had told me a year ago that I would have another baby, I wouldn’t have believed them.
"In fact, the last six years have turned out to be like the best dream ever.
"I would never have imagined when I boarded a flight as a resolutely single woman on a trip to Dubai that I would end up falling in love, getting engaged, then married and pregnant, within the space of nine months.
"Now here I am, six years down the line, with a gorgeous husband and two fabulous little girls."
And Lucy shares (refreshingly so) that she may have some cosmetic surgery down the line to help regain her pre-pregnancy body:
"I put on a lot of weight with Rosie, so I’ll need a few sessions with a personal trainer," she said.
"I'm also booking in some Botox for around my eyes and forehead.
"And going under the knife scares me, but after breastfeeding two children I'm seriously thinking about having a breast lift for my next birthday."
