English actress Amanda Holden has spoken about the birth of her first child saying she is "terrified" of becoming a mother. Amanda and fiance Chris Hughes’ baby is due in a few weeks.

She reveals, "People keep saying, ‘Are you excited about it?’, but that’s the wrong word because I am, but it’s kind of a terror, too. Motherhood is a life-changing thing… There will be somebody in your life who will be completely reliant on you." And while previously she was all excited about having a baby now she is more than a little nervous, "Now I’m pregnant, I’m like, ‘No, I don’t want to be brave!’ I want to be on a bed with a big needle in my back. I don’t want to feel anything."
