Pregnant EastEnders star Melissa Suffield posts enormous bump picture as she reveals she's battling nosebleeds

PREGNANT EastEnders star Melissa Suffield has posted a photo of her enormous baby bump as she revealed she's battling nosebleeds.

In September, The Sun Online revealed that the 26-year-old actress was expecting her first child with fiance Robert Brendan.

She has been keeping social media followers updated with her pregnancy ever since, posting a a new photo to her Story at 25 weeks.

In the snap, Melissa is wearing just a nude bra with her bare bump proudly on display.

It also reveals a delicate flower tattoo on her ribcage, with the star looking exasperated in the mirror selfie.

She captioned the post: "Moving is hard work".

Yesterday, Melissa shared that she is suffering from nosebleeds, sharing a close-up photo of blood trickling from her nose.

The star also confessed that her cravings have included vast quantities of custard, regularly posting photos of the sweet dessert to her page.

One image showed the former child star clutching a tin of Ambrosia with the caption: "Managed to get a sh*tload of custard before the rain hit.

"Am I going to eat them all today? Yeah, probably."

In October, Melissa admitted that she was scared her baby will be a "p***k" in a candid post about having "cellulite everywhere" and a "hairy belly".

Melissa shot to fame playing Ian Beale's daughter Lucy in EastEnders between 2004 and 2010, joining the BBC One soap at the age of 11.

She and 37-year-old Robert previously told us that they are due to welcome their bundle of joy in mid-March.

The pair met in 2017 while performing in a production of Beauty and the Beast together.

The romance has since gone from strength to strength, with the loved-up couple buying a house together earlier this year.

In July, the star announced that she is engaged on her social media page, sharing a snap of her dazzling diamond ring and the caption: "#ISaidYaass @mrrobertbrendan."

Although the third actress to put their face to Ian Beale's only daughter in 'Enders, Melissa was the first recognisable star to take on the role and appeared as a series regular for six years.

She was axed nine years ago after being caught boozing underage – just weeks before her 18th birthday.

The role was reprised by Hetti Bywater, with the character murdered by little brother Bobby Beale in 2014.
