Michelle Keegan slams sexist questions about when she'll have a baby with Mark Wright calling it 'double standards'

MICHELLE Keegan admitted she's frustrated at constantly being asked questions about starting a family when her husband Mark Wright isn't.

The actress, 33, said it's double standards that baby questions are always aimed at her while Mark is asked about less personal issues.

Speaking in Women's Health, she said: "I do think it's different for a woman. It shouldn't be but it is.

"I get asked about children whereas Mark wouldn't for example. Why haven't I had a child? When am I going to have a child? I don't know what they want me to say. I don't know what the right or wrong answer is."

In the autumn, Mark's dad Mark Snr commented on snaps of Michelle holding her cousin Katie's newborn baby Brody and begged the couple to make him a grandpa.

Days later Michelle "nailed" bottle-feeding as she held the adorable baby.




The proud 'auntie' shared a photo of the little one snoozing, calling him "Mr Perfect" in a sweet caption.

Michelle followed up with a selfie as she cradled her cousin's bundle of joy, feeding him a bottle of milk.

Brody snuggled up in a fluffy white blanket and sleepily gazed at Michelle during the feed.

The Our Girl star introduced Brody to her followers in September, with both she and Mark sharing photos of themselves cuddling him.

Mark, 33, looked broody as he gazed at sleeping Brody in his arms after sharing other shots of the family's newest addition.

He captioned the post at the time: "Another one (wont be the last) just because I cannot cope with this little man…. I must say, he took to uncle Mark like a duck takes to water !!

"Brody Allen welcome to the world little fella !! Another hammer 🔨 to join the clan !!"

His dad quickly commented: "Lovely baby and it's about time you made me a grandad and your mum a grandma".

Mark has fielded questions about when he and former Corrie star Michelle will start a family of their own.


The pair, who married in 2015, have said they do want to have children, but Michelle is keen to focus on her career for the timebeing.

In August, Michelle once again branded baby questions "frustrating" – hitting back at sexist double standards surrounding how she and Mark are asked about the issue.

She said at the time: "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 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."
