Michelle Keegan shares frustration over pregnancy speculation: ‘Nobody knows what goes on’

Michelle Keegan has revealed that questions about when she will have children “bother” her, saying “no one knows what goes on behind closed doors”.

The actress, 33, who has been married to husband Mark Wright for five years, opened up on the “double standards” of being asked about getting pregnant.

The former Coronation Street star shared her frustration after saying speculation started when she recently quit BBC drama Our Girl.

Speaking in the August issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, Michelle said: “A few years ago it didn't bother me and I answered the question, but now I think,’I don't need to answer that because nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors.’

“I remember when I finished Our Girl people were like, ‘Is it because you're going off to have a baby?’”

Michelle added: “I know for a fact if Mark finished a job, nobody would ask him if he was going to have a baby. It's not fair. It does make me feel frustrated.”

During the interview, Michelle also revealed her regret over posing in so-called “lads’ mags” when she was younger.

The actress praised the “fabulous” Coronation Street team for supporting her during her stint as Tina McIntyre from 2008 to 2014, but revealed she didn’t necessarily want to do the photoshoots.

“It wasn't something that I necessarily really wanted to do. I remember feeling very shy because I was really young. But I thought it came as part of being on TV,” she explained.

“Now that I'm older, I realise that it is OK to say no to something that you don't feel 100 per cent happy with. You don't have to do it because you think you have to do it.

“But I will say, this is no reflection on Coronation Street. I had a brilliant network and team and the PR team were fabulous and really looked after me and it was a different time back then. Everyone did it at that time.”

Michelle added: “It’s OK to say no and go with your instinct. I always wanted to please people but I think if something doesn't feel right, just say no.

“I go with my instinct a lot now. I am still that 'yes' person as I don't like upsetting anyone. But I feel like I am getting stronger. That comes with age.”
