I take my baby to work, says Hollyoaks’ Stephanie

Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Waring has revealed that her new baby daughter has been joining her on the set of the soap.

The 32-year-old, who plays Cindy Longford, has just returned from maternity leave, and told Inside Soap that she is coping well with juggling work and motherhood.

“I’m finding it easier than I thought it would be,” she said.

“My other half, Dan, has been looking after Lexi when I’m at work and he brings her in when I have long days.”

“We’ve got a creche at Hollyoaks and Lexi will be joining when she’s six months old,” Stephanie added.

“She’s a great baby – if she cried all the time, I think I’d be pulling my hair out.

“It’s been a good adjustment so far and I’m hoping it will continue.”

Stephanie also revealed that her older daughter Mia was “brilliant” with her baby sister. “Lexi’s eyes widen and she gives a big smile as soon she sees her,” she said. “It’s lovely that they’ve bonded.”

And she added that co-star Gemma Merna, who is getting married this summer, could well be getting broody as she has also taken a shine to her daughter.

“Gemma Merna loves her,” Stephanie said. “She snatches Lexi off me!”
