I still can't believe I'm a dad - Holby's Ben


Holby City star Ben Richards said he still cannot believe he has become a father after doctors told him he would probably never have children following a diagnosis of bowel cancer.

The actor, who is set to appear in Hollyoaks from next month, posed for pictures with his partner Kirsty Duffy and their daughter Freja Amelie (right) born on March 31.

He told Hello! Magazine: "To be honest, I am only just starting to get round to the idea that someone isn't going to say, 'Cut!' and take her from me.

"Sometimes I think I'm just playing the role of dad and round the corner is the actual mum and dad waiting for the scene to finish."

Duffy said baby Freja had had "such a massive effect on our lives".

She said: "Ben and I cannot believe you're able to love someone so much. I love Ben to pieces, but this is a different love and my heart is bursting."
