Actor Steve McFadden, best known for his role as Phil Mitchell in the BBC soap EastEnders, is reportedly having a baby with a married mother of three.
Dr Rachel Green embarked on an affair with the actor around a year ago and has now left her husband to be with him.
Green is said to be six months pregnant and hoping to set up a home with Steve.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Steve had been single for a while but Rachel has been married for years. The pregnancy has been a bombshell for her family.
"Rachel has three young children, which has made the situation difficult for both families.
"She has been living between Steve's house and her own for a few months now. They are trying to work out the best thing for their future with their kids."

A neighbour in the London district of Finchley said: "They act like a married couple and certainly don't hide the fact they're an item. She smiles occasionally to people round here but he keeps himself to himself."
Steve, 50, has a son and two daughters with ex-partners Sue Marshall and Angela Bostock.
