TV actress Rosie Marcel is expecting a pink bundle of joy

"It was an amazing feeling, crazy. Literally 48 hours before I started injections. I was pregnant!" she told HELLO! at the time. "I had done so many pregnancy tests during the eight months we'd been trying hard for a baby that I fully expected it to come back negative as it always did. "Rosie told HELLO! how she and her husband turned to IVF after months of trying to conceive and the agony of a miscarriage nine months ago. She suffered the loss at the same time that her character Doctor Jac Naylor was giving birth in the hospital drama.


The star and her husband Ben Stacey announced the happy news last month

"God, it was the worst timing because while my character was giving birth, I knew I was pregnant and had this feeling that it was going wrong" she confided, talking about the miscarriage for the first time. "I certainly blamed myself because you think of all the things you’ve done wrong. As a woman, you feel like you’ve failed. I went down the rabbit-hole, as others do. I felt terribly sorry for myself and it was difficult to pick myself up."Now Rosie is preparing for the baby's arrival early next year. "This feels completely different to the last pregnancy so I'm more positive about it," she says.
