Kellie Bright, who is best known for portraying Linda Carter on EastEnders, has said that she is certain her new-born child Rudy will be her last.
The 45-year-old actress revealed in an interview with the Mirror that she ‘100%’ feels her ‘family is complete’.
She added: “I know it’s not for everyone and there’s millions of women my age thinking ‘God I wouldn’t want to go back to that’.

“But for me, I just never had that feeling [before] of being done with having children. It’s a really special and unique thing.”

The couple also share two other young children together, sons Freddy, nine, and Gene, four.
Opening up about her previous complicated pregnancy with her second son, the actress said: “I very much have the philosophy that because of the way we’ve had our children – going through IVF and the frozen embryo transfer – they are really meant to be here.”
Kellie mentioned that she was hoping for a girl, although she is happy that her son Rudy turned out to be a boy, saying that it was ‘meant to be’.

“Rudy is no exception and if anything I feel it more so with him because of his journey to get here. He was the last remaining embryo and the one that made it. For whatever reason, I’m meant to bring up boys.”
She also expressed her difficulty trying for a third child as she struggled to pregnant until much later on.
The star also gushed at the huge congratulations she received from her co-stars after her birth only a few months ago.
Kellie said: “They’ve been really lovely. I have a WhatsApp group with my television family and I’ve sent pictures.”
