Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent is preparing to welcome her first child with boyfriend Kean Bryan in the autumn.
As the actress approaches her due date, she's been opening up about her pregnancy experience, revealing it's helped her let go of some of her body hang-ups.
Speaking to OK!, Brooke said: "It’s very strange having pictures taken and not breathing in because you’re so used to doing it and standing a certain way.
"I think people underestimate how pregnancy makes you feel or how much you change. Your entire body changes.
"It’s a whole new experience but it’s nice having the challenge to find things that fit. Sometimes it takes me an hour to find something to wear!"
Brooke first unveiled her baby bump on Instagram ahead of her 27th birthday celebrations, captioning the pic: "I'm not a regular mom, I'm a cool mom."
Previously, Brooke said she was "really excited" about becoming a first-time mum.
"I always worried it wouldn't happen for me – I'm beside myself with happiness," she said in April.
"I've been playing songs to the bump and sometimes I sit and cry about how much I love my baby! I've always wanted to be a mum, so I'm really excited."
