Jaime Winstone thinks motherhood is her "main calling in life".
The 30-year-old actress - who is six months pregnant with her first child with her boyfriend James Suckling - has revealed she's dreamed of becoming a mother since she was a young girl.
She shared: "Growing up, I always had a strong feeling that I wanted to be a mother.
"Whichever way my life went, I guess I felt that a role as a mummy was going to be my main calling in life."
The 'Made in Dagenham' star also revealed her award-winning father Ray and her mother Elaine can't wait to become grandparents, revealing they "burst into tears" upon hearing the news.
She told HELLO! magazine: "Mum and Dad are ecstatic. After the news had sunk in, they were the first people I called. When I told them they were going to be grandparents, they both burst into tears. It was so cute.
"Dad can't wait to meet his grandchild. It's a beautiful time for us as a family and it's brought us even closer than we already were... I really feel this is the next chapter for me and I've never been happier."
