Jorgie Porter was "nervous to get excited" about being pregnant after previously miscarrying quads.
The 'Hollyoaks' actress revealed earlier this month she and fiance Ollie Piotrowski are expecting a baby but she admitted she found her first trimester "a bit scary" because she feared the worst could happen after her sad losses last year.
She said: "At first it was obviously a bit scary. I was nervous to get excited.”
But after going public with a social media video, the 34-year-old beauty now feels more relaxed.
She added to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: “Now I’m able to talk about being pregnant, it’s a relief. The reaction has been amazing.
“Sometimes when you put a post up, you’re thinking, ‘What are they going to say?’ You worry that they’re going to be nasty. But I haven’t had one single nasty comment.
“A lot of people have thanked me for speaking about what I’ve gone through, too.
“I always think you just have to be honest. The support I’ve had from fans has been simply amazing. It is times like this when you love social media.”
And the blonde beauty is thankful her castmates at 'Hollyoaks' have been supportive too.
She added: “It has been unreal. They just care so much. You can tell they are genuinely so lovely.”
Last week, Jorgie joked it was a pleasant change being able to relax on the red carpet for once when she showed off her bump for the first time at the British Soap Awards.
She quipped: “It’s a bit weird not having to suck in my tummy. Normally I’ll miss out on having a club sandwich. Now I’m pregnant I can have two!”
