EastEnders star James Farrar expecting first baby with wife as he cradles her bump
EastEnders star James Farrar is going to be a dad!
The Zack Hudson actor's wife Ali Roff revealed the happy news on Instagram, sharing a picture of them as he cradled her bump in an adorable picture.
Posing up in the mirror, she debuted her blossoming bump underneath a blue floral dress, snapping the picture as James stood by her side with one hand placed tenderly on her belly.
The happy couple both had beaming smiles on their faces as they captured the precious moment.
"Mama and Papa," she captioned the beautiful snap.
And he replied: "Sexy Mama".
James and Ali have been together for 12 years, with him calling her his "life partner and life coach all in one".
James previously gushed about her in an Instagram post, writing: "When we first met we were 'unavailable'. Our interests were football, netball, partying and being rascals.
"We couldn't help falling for each other and a lot has happened since. In our 12 years together Ali has spent time travelling the world educating herself on Eastern and Western philosophy. I spent a year away from London filming a TV show.
"We moved to Blackheath together and got married. We founded a successful retreat #TheRemedyRetreats ..."
He went on: "Ali had a flourishing career at a big finance investment cooperation but left to pursue her dream - writing. A decision that she made herself - bravery beyond words.
"She spent time at @CondeNast before finding her way home, where she sits as Wellness Director of @PsychologiesMagazine - surrounded by equally powerful and inspiring women.
"Her writing for @oneyearnobeer has just seen her abstain from alcohol for a year - something she made look easy.
"Our friends and family go to Ali for support and she'll always make light of the situation having created such balance in her own life.
"This week sees the pre-order release of #TheWellfulnessProject - her debut book.
"The worldwide launch coming March 2020. Proud doesn't cover it.
"A life partner and life coach all in one. I'm a lucky boy. Keep on shining - I'll ensure I push you to succeed in everything you do. Not that you need it."
Before joining EastEnders, James starred as Liam Gilmor in Hollyoaks from 2012 to 2013.
He was first introduced into the BBC soap as Sharon's long lost brother.
His character also had a steamy romance with Nancy Carter after she made a comeback to Albert Square.
