EMMERDALE actress Michelle Hardwick has shared a loved-up picture with wife Kate Brooks and their two children as they enjoy their first Christmas as a family of four.
The star – who plays Vanessa Woodfield on the ITV soap opera – welcomed newborn Betty last month and announced the bundle of joy’s arrival on Instagram.
Michelle and her clan were all smiles as they posed in their matching family pyjamas as they sat in front of a huge Christmas tree decorated with an abundance of lights.
The Emmerdale actress captioned the image: “Our annual Brooksy pyjama photo, but with one extra this year.
“Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas & New Year.”
Kate cradled Betty as their adorable son Teddy shot a cheeky grin to the camera as he sat in front of his parents.
In another close-up image, Michelle had her turn of holding Betty in her arms as a series of Christmas stocking could be seen hanging above a fireplace which could be seen adorned with the names, ‘Teddy’ and ‘Mama’.
A third image showed the couple all cosy as they posed with their adorable pet pooch.
Michelle’s co-star and recent new mum Amy Walsh commented underneath the pics: “Omg amazing.”
Betty’s arrival was announced with a sweet black and white photo of her after the birth and another photo of her newborn daughter.
