In an exclusive interview with HELLO!, Carley revealed how the pandemic hit their industry hard but allowed them to enjoy a slower pace of life. "We were on this fast, amazing rollercoaster of life," revealed 38-year-old Carley. "I think the world almost had to stop for me to realise just how much I wanted to have a child."

Carley, whose stage roles have included some of the most coveted, including Fantine in Les Miserables and Elle Woods in Legally Blonde: The Musical, admitted: "I think I will definitely be calmer before the birth than ahead of a first night."

Congratulations Danny and Carley on the birth of your beautiful baby girl!
