Former Emmerdale star Verity Rushworth has revealed she is pregnant with her first child.

Revealing the couple's exciting news, Verity shared a photo of herself and Dominic with huge smiles on their faces.

She tweeted alongside it: "Yey! @dominicmshaw and I are expecting our first baby this summer! So excited!!"

The 30-year-old also shared two tongue-in-cheek posts to Instagram, after going public with her pregnancy. One pictured Verity in a bikini and had '14 weeks' written across it. Verity told her followers: "The baby a few weeks ago sized apple! Think I'm a sweet potato now. The bikini has been put away in a box."

In another, she and Dominic can be seen eating out. While she has a sign next to her saying, 'Eating for two,' Dominic's says, 'Drinking for two.' The post also read: "Baby Shaw coming soon!"

However, Verity's baby news has meant she has had to pull out of her role for the upcoming tour of Breakfast At Tiffany's. The musical is hitting the road later this year and while Verity was cast to play the role of Holly Golightly, she no longer will be thanks to her baby bombshell.

Verity made sure to thank the team working on the show, telling fans they have been "wonderful" to her. She also encouraged people to still go and see the show (where they can still see Pixie Lott in action as Holly) as she thinks it will be "fab."

Instead, she has been busy trying to find a pram for her little one and trying her hand at antenatal pilates.

Verity's baby news comes three years after she and Dominic married. They wed back in March 2013.
