EastEnders James Bye introduces third baby after trouble conceiving

EastEnders star James Bye has become a dad for the third time.

The 35-year-old welcomed a baby boy named Hugo James two months ago with his wife Victoria.

The actor, who has starred as Martin Fowler on the BBC soap since 2014, has opened up on becoming a father-of-three after a tough time conceiving.

The pair, who have been married for seven years, told OK! magazine of their struggle to conceive due to endometriosis.

James revealed how he jumped into the birthing pool to catch his 7lb 11oz newborrn.

Victoria said, ''I said to James: ‘Please help me!’ I felt a big splash and James was next to me in the birthing pool.''

She continued, ''We both sat there sobbing with happiness, holding him in the birthing pool."

James revealed, ''Being the first to hold Hugo made me so emotional.''

He continued, ''We feel closer. With three children, if you’re not a team you’d have no chance."

The couple are also parents to five-year-old Edward and three-year-old Louis George.

When it comes to adding to their brood, it's on the table.

He said, ''We’ve been blessed with three healthy children, so we count ourselves lucky, but never say never.''

Huge congratulations to them on the bundle of joy.
