Amy Walsh and Toby-Alexander Smith thought Bonnie was a boy due to umbilical cord

Amy Walsh has admitted she was surprised that her baby was a girl as she originally mistook her for a boy after she'd just given birth.

The Emmerdale actress appeared on a recent episode of Loose Women with her partner, EastEnders star Toby-Alexander Smith, and their baby girl Bonnie who was born in December 2021.

The panellists asked if Amy was surprised when she discovered she'd had a girl, leading to the soap actress admitting she initially mistook the sex of the baby.

The 34 year old explained: “Well, it was a surprise. They held her up to me and obviously I was so high on gas and air and two epidurals. They said, 'Look what you’ve got,' and I said, ‘It’s a Boy. We’ve got a boy!’

“I saw the umbilical cord was just stuck to her in a weird way and I thought I saw something else.

“So I was like, ‘We’ve got a boy’ and I’ve got like seven nephews so we just assumed that we’d have another boy in the family.”

Her soap star partner also shared that he was too engrossed checking on Amy and making sure she was ok to see the baby’s sex.

Toby, 30, added: “They initially asked me to announce the sex, but I was so far down the other end my head was just like stuck staring at the bed. I was just like, 'huh?'”

The couple announced the safe arrival of their daughter, Bonnie Mae Smith exclusively to OK! earlier in the year.

At the time, they said: “Well…it’s been a busy week! Hope you all had a good one. HAPPY NEW YEAR from the three of us.”
