Emmerdale actress Lucy Pargeter is busy preparing for the birth of her twins and is now ready to reveal the gender of the little ones.


The 39-year-old is due at the beginning of May but says she and fiancé Rudi Coleano are expecting them to make their first appearance a few weeks early.



"We found out at the five-month scan just before Christmas, and we're just over the moon that they're both healthy – it really was the best Christmas present,” Lucy said in a recent interview with OK magazine.


Lucy is already mum to 11-year-old Lola and has now revealed that she will soon be mum to three girls.


"One boy and one girl would have completed the family," Lucy said "because Rudi has four sisters and, with him being a goalkeeper, he would've loved a boy to carry on the goalkeeping in the family – instead of a dog with one brain cell!



"Two girls are easier, there will be no split car journeys on a Saturday taking one to football and one to dance class.


"And clothes sorting will be a lot easier."
