Mrs Brown’s Boys star Gary Hollywood has told how his wife surprised him with some important news on his 40th birthday.
The Bafta award-winning actor has revealed his wife Cherylanne gave him the best present ever – news he is to be a father again.
Delighted Gary said: “I still can’t believe the wonderful news. We’re having a baby.
“Everybody told me turning 40 is a huge milestone in your life, but I never imagined for one second I’d be celebrating becoming a dad again.
“It’s quite simply the best present ever.”
Dad-of-three Gary, who comes from Glasgow, was celebrating his birthday with family and friends at the couple’s home in Tenerife when his wife broke the news.
Cherylanne, 30, said: “I’d been wondering what to get Gary for his birthday for quite a few months, and could never come up with just the right thing.
“When I discovered a few weeks ago that I was pregnant, of course it was hard to keep it a secret, but I knew it would be the most wonderful present I could ever give him.”
Gary said he “burst into tears” at the news.
He said: “I couldn’t help myself. It made me so happy.”
Their baby is due in April.
