Former EastEnders star Kara Tointon is expecting her second child with fiancé Marius Jensen.

The 2010 Strictly Come Dancing winner, who played Dawn Swann on the BBC One soap from 2005 to 2009, shared the happy news that she has another baby boy on the way in a recent interview with Hello! magazine.

“I think this year has brought so many things in different ways. At the beginning of the year I was due to start a play, and now I am at home in a little cocoon and pregnant,” she said.

The couple welcomed their son Frey in November 2018, and soon realised they wanted to give their firstborn a brother or sister.

“We really wanted a sibling for Frey. So we said, ‘If it happens, it happens. Let’s go with the flow,’ and it happened much quicker than we expected,” she said. “I did the test in May. We weren’t shocked but it was a surprise, and we feel so lucky.”

On the prospect of having another boy, she added: “I am thinking how lovely for Frey to have a brother. I’ll be outnumbered with Marius and two boys but bring it on.”

Earlier this week, Tointon took to Instagram to share a first look at her makeover for a new role.

The actress recently appeared in an episode of Sky Arts’ Urban Myths, centring on legendary composer George Frideric Handel. For her role Kitty Clive, she sports a blonde wig and corset.

She captioned the post: “Laughed [a lot] looking at myself for this one. Meet Kitty Clive. Had a great time with this little cameo for Season 4 of Urban Myths.”

EastEnders airs weeknights on BBC One, while Tointon’s episode of Urban Myths is available to watch on NOW TV or Sky‘s catch-up services.
