This will be Jennifer's first child. She is expecting with her partner of four years Greg Lake, who was previously on Geordie Shore way back in series one of the MTV show.
Jennifer was keen to keep working until the end of her pregnancy, saying: "I haven't got a clue what I am doing so I'm just going to trust their guidance and whenever they want me to go, I'll go. But I'm willing to work until the end. Hollyoaks are really supportive, it's so lovely."
Fellow Hollyoaks star Chelsee Healey is also currently expecting, with the two actresses recently posting adorable matching bump photos on social media and sharing pregnancy tips.

"We have a little chat now and again," Jennifer told >Digital Spy. "We're as bad as each other, though! She's got the same attitude as me, we're both going to take it in our stride and see how it goes each day."
We don't doubt that Jennifer's character Mercedes McQueen has plenty of drama up her sleeves for us before she takes her maternity leave though.
Hollyoaks airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 6.30pm, with first look episodes airing on E4 at 7pm.
