Eastenders actress Kelly Bright has shared an adorable video of her embracing her “miracle” baby son.
The rare clip of 45-year-old Rudy cradling her in a baby sling and her newborn attracted hearts.
Kelly — who plays Linda Carter in EastEnders — went makeup-free in the adorable video and slicked her blonde hair back into a bun.
Panning the camera around the spectacular scenery and golden sand in Cornwall, the actress smiled and looked utterly happy.
Kelly shared the news of her ‘miracle’ baby with husband Paul Stoker earlier this month after she missed out on the National Television Awards.
The actress later revealed that they had named their third child Rudy Joy Stoker.
The TV star shares her youngest boy’s surname in a new interview Ok! magazine And revealed the heartfelt meaning behind it.
She told the publication: “Joey was my maternal grandfather’s name and I said that whether we were a boy or a girl, I would really like the middle name Joy because she meant so much to me.
“We weren’t sold on Rudy until about a week before I had him, but it was on my boys list for a while and definitely when I had Jean.”
Kelly revealed that she was induced at 37-and-a-half weeks because physicians were concerned about the size of the baby and claimed that an induction is “a really terrible thing for a woman to have”.
The TV star then explained that although her labor lasted two days, the delivery was “quick” and “rapid” with her midwife sweeping and her waters breaking as she headed to the labor ward.
Kelly said: “He arrived 20 minutes after I got to my labor ward and all I had was gas and air.
“I didn’t want an epidural this time because I wanted to feel everything — it’s somewhere in the middle. It was all too early but this was the birth I wanted.”
Kelly announced that she has welcomed her third child, her “miracle” boy, with husband Paul with the help of IVF.
Kelly has been an EastEnders star since 2013, when she joined Albert Square as the landlady of Queen Vic – Linda Carter.
Kelly faced criticism after she became pregnant at 44 – and “no one would blink an eyelid” if she were a man.
The star, who is already mother to nine-year-old son Freddie and four-year-old Jean, went through a “rollercoaster ride” during her IVF journey, which was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But some felt she was “too old” to raise her family.
Actress Kelly previously revealed how the couple needed IVF treatment after “struggling to get pregnant” with their second child, Jean.
The soap star said she was 39 when she first tried the treatment, managing to obtain “four, nice strong embryos”, one of which turned out to be her son, Jean.
Kelly and Paul then had to use the following three embryos trying for their third child, with their “miracle” third chance working after “the first two embryos didn’t work”.
She reported that the pair decided to try for a third child in late 2019, but the coronavirus outbreak put their plans on hold.
