Eve is pregnant!
Torchwood star Eve Myles has announced that she is expecting her first child.
The 31-year-old Welsh actress decided to try for a baby after filming a new five-part special of the Doctor Who spin-off, Children of the Earth, which airs on BBC1 later this year.
"I've wanted to do this for such a long time, but I kept getting job after job after job," said Eve, who plays former police officer Gwen Cooper in the cult series.
"I thought, if I put this off any more I'm going to be 65. My partner and I decided this year was going to be the year, and we were blessed that it happened so quickly.
"It's the best thing that ever happened to me we're over the moon."
Eve, who is three and a half months' pregnant, joked about the fact that her character Gwen gave birth in series two to an alien.
"We went for a scan and my mum was there," she recalled. "And my mum went: `No, it's not a Nostrovite! It's a real Welsh human!' But of course it crosses my mind I hope it's not an alien!"
Eve added that motherhood will not make her quit her role in Torchwood.
"I hope we get a new series," she said. "I'd really like to play Gwen as a mother. It's not like I have to really save the world I just have to sit in make-up!"
