Natalie Cassidy happy she's quit fags for fruit

EastEnders star Natalie Cassidy’s positively blooming as she prepares herself for the arrival of her first child.

The actress, 27, fell pregnant following a whirlwind romance with transport manager Adam Cottrell, 30, who proposed to 
her in May.

‘I’ve loved every minute of being pregnant,’ she says. ‘I feel like I’ve found what it means to be a woman.’

Nat has given up fags and taken up eating lemons!

‘[Quitting smoking] has been the best part of my pregnancy!’ she reveals. ‘I’m over it – I really believe I’ll never smoke again.

‘But I’ve been peeling lemons and eating them like apples. The 
other day I ate three of them 
in one sitting!

‘I
was worried as they’re so acidic, but I had a look on Google and it’s
OK because they’re a good source of vitamin C. Plus, it’s better than
cream cakes.’
