Ex-Emmerdale actress Hayley Tamaddon has revealed she’s engaged to boyfriend Adrian.

“This year is turning out to be quite wonderful.”

The post was soon inundated with messages as people rushed to congratulate her on the happy news.

Her celeb pals, including Shane Richie, former Strictly pro James Jordan and Corrie actress Julia Goulding, were some of the first to send their well wishes.

James wrote “congratulations babe”, while Shane sent an “awww shucks” GIF and Jane replied, “Absolutely fantastic news, can’t wait until you’re home so we can celebrate.”

The proposal comes just three weeks after Hayley, who is best known for playing Del Dingle in

Emmerdale and Andrea Beckett in Corrie, announced she’s expecting her first child aged 42.

The actress, who’s opted to keep her relationship with Adrian out of the spotlight, posted a gorgeous picture of herself cradling her growing bump as she posed in a strapless maxi dress.

She wrote to her fans, “I’m so pleased to tell you all I’m expecting my first child with my wonderful boyfriend Adrian!!”

Hayley added, “I’ve always wanted to be a mum and didn’t think I could have children. And now, at the ripe old age of 42 – I’M PREGNANT! We couldn’t be happier.”

Just days ago, she was showing off her growing belly and pregnancy glow as she posed in a bikini poolside.

Congrats, Hayley!
