Emmerdale star Adam Thomas makes gag after revealing happy news

Emmerdale’s Adam Thomas could not resist a little joke as he announced he and his wife are having a baby, teasing: “I hope it’s mine.”

The actor, 29, and his wife Caroline Daly are expecting a sibling for their three-year-old son Teddy.

Adam, who plays Adam Barton in Emmerdale, posted a link to the pregnancy announcement on Twitter, and quipped: “I hope it’s mine,” adding a grimacing face emoji.

“It’s ours. SOZ,” joked the Emmerdale team in response.

“Congrats Adam, Teddy and Caroline! xx,” they added.

Thomas and his wife told OK! magazine the baby was conceived on their wedding night this summer.

They have yet to find out the baby’s sex and Thomas said: “I really wanted a son but I have Teddy now so I’m not fussed either way.”

Earlier this year the actor confirmed he would be leaving Emmerdale after nearly eight years on the ITV soap.

“It was a really tough decision to take to leave, but I felt that now is the time to move on and challenge myself with some new roles,” he said.
