Former Hollyoaks and Strictly star Danny Mac ‘so excited’ about first child

Former Hollyoaks actor Danny Mac has revealed he is “so excited” about becoming a dad for the first time.

Danny and actress wife Carley Stenson announced last month that they were expecting their first child.

And 33-year-old actor Danny is counting down the weeks under the couple’s new arrival.

“We're just getting on with it the best we can, it's one of those things we're so excited about," revealed Danny, speaking on the Lorraine show.

"That's primarily the focus now, it's just as well to be honest that I've got two jobs to go back to as I'm going to need them!"

Stand-in Lorraine host Ranvir Sing quizzed Danny who he was going to managing being a first-time dad and squeezing in his two West End jobs with parenthood on the horizon.

"It will fit in, it has to,” joked Danny. “I'm just turning into an official grown up now!”

Last month former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Danny and Carley, 38, made the baby announcement in a sweet Instagram video on Mother's Day, in which they showed off a sonogram.

Sharing the identical video, they both jokingly captioned their posts: “Possibly the greatest thing we've created since we put Nutella between two salt & vinegar Pringles.

Hollyoaks star Nikki Sanderson commented at the time: "Aww amazing!! Congratulations to you both,."

And Strictly judge Ore Oduba admitted she was delighted for the couple: "So SO happy for you guys!!!!” she said. “What a beautiful addition to your family. CONGRATULATIONSSSSS".

Danny and Carley have been dating since 2011 and got married in a special ceremony in 2017 following their romance.

Danny played Mark Savage in the hit Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks until leaving the show in 2015, whilst wife Carley played the character Stephen Cunningham in the same show until 2011.

Now Danny is set to star on the stage in Pretty Woman: The Musicals later this year, as well as another theatrical production, Mousetrap, as well this year.

And talking about Pretty Woman on Lorraine, Danny revealed the coronavirus lockdown had originally postponed production of the show.

“We previewed for about three weeks and then we were officially open for two weeks, it was the start of the third week the Monday night that we were told we were shut down,” he admitted.

“I thought it was only going to be for a couple weeks, but here we are still, a year later.

'The parameters just kept shifting along, so it was maybe even a month ago that we got told the dates. Fingers crossed it will be the official date so we can crack on as planned.”
