The 26-year-old actress - who played Bethany Platt in the ITV soap - is currently five months’ pregnant and admits the first scan was “especially emotional” for the couple after losing a baby in March.
Opening up about her miscarriage, she said: “It was a traumatising, horrendous time. We went for a scan and they couldn’t see anything, so then we went to the hospital and they thought they could see something, so it was very up and down.
“I had pregnancy symptoms and I was feeling really unwell and, when they were doing all these scans, my symptoms were getting worse and worse and there were no signs I had had a miscarriage, so that made it more of a shock.
“We just assumed everything was going to be fine. Then, after a week when they’d done the blood tests and other tests, I went back and they said that I had miscarried. It was a really strange feeling,” she told OK!
Fallon was supported by her Preston North End midfielder other half as she underwent surgery to remove the pregnancy tissue.
While the couple didn’t put any pressure on themselves to conceive again, they found out the happy news during a holiday abroad.
The couple is understandably “worried” about this pregnancy but, now that they are past the 12 weeks’ mark, they’re beginning to get “excited”.
They already know the gender of the baby, too, but have decided to keep it to themselves for now.
Fallon will be monitored through her pregnancy as she has a heart-shaped uterus, which can cause problems, meaning she has been classed as high-risk.
She told the publication that she found out about the condition a few years ago, but that it wasn’t the reason for her miscarriage.
