EastEnders favourite Louisa announced her happy news on Mother's Day...

Eastenders star Louisa Lytton has announced her pregnancy news in a sweet video that she'd made for her mum.

Louisa, who plays Walford's Ruby Allen, told the world that she is expecting a baby with her fiancee Ben Bhanvra on Mother's Day, leaving her fans and EastEnders co-stars thrilled by the happy news.

The video saw Louisa opening an envelope with the word 'mum' written on the front.

Inside was a card that read: "Just a little note to say... there's a baby on the way."

The EastEnders star then shared a montage of her with Ben and her baby bump, as well as lots of Mother's Day flowers and cards for the mum-to-be.

"You have held my hand for 32 years, you have taught me right from wrong, corrected my spelling and helped me see the light at the end of every single tunnel.
