EastEnders star Max Bowden is becoming a dad for the first time, it has been reported.

The actor who plays bad boy Ben Mitchell on the hit BBC programme split from Roisin this year but the pair are reportedly overjoyed at becoming parents.

Despite the couple no longer being together, they plan to raise their unborn child together.

Speaking to The Sun, a source said: "Max and Roisin are delighted they're expecting a baby – even if they are no longer together.

"They broke up earlier this year, there was no one else involved, it just simply didn't work out."

They went on to add that insurance broker Roisin was "thrilled" when she found out she was pregnant, and that her and Max have remained good friends.

"Although they have kept the news low key until now, they have told friends and family," the source continued to the media outlet.

The Sun went on to report: "Those who know Max and Roisin could not be more excited.

"It has been a tough year for Max so he was delighted when he found out he is going to be a dad."

The couple had been together since October 2021 and frequently shared romantic snaps to Max's Instagram page over the course of their relationship.

The pair kept their relationship out of the spotlight at first and finally confirmed they were together five months after they started dating.

Despite Max bagging buckets of success on the screen in recent years, he tragically lost three of his close pals last year.
