Emmerdale's Jay Kontzle reveals wife's 'unplanned' pregnancy: 'I'm sweating!'

Emmerdale star Jay Kontzle has revealed that his wife Mimi is pregnant with their third child.

The actor, who plays Billy Fletcher on the ITV soap, is already dad to daughter KaiBo, 6 and son Zian, 4.

Discussing his reaction when he first found out that Mimi was expecting, he revealed that he was a bit ‘shocked’.

‘Mimi called me during my lunch break on set and told me,’ he told OK! Magazine.

‘I was sitting eating lunch in the sun and all of a sudden I went hot and started dripping with sweat. I was a bit shocked!

‘Before that, Mimi had said she wanted to get a pregnancy test and I said: “A pregnancy test? That’s a lot of money that, especially with the cost of living going up.”

“Then I was in work and she decided to throw a spanner in the works over lunch!’


The baby is due at the end of November. Mimi and Jay have agreed that they’re not going to have any more children, revealing that, for them, three is the ‘magic number’.

Mimi, meanwhile, added that their children Kaibo and Zian can’t wait to meet their new sibling.

‘They’re at the age where they can really help and KaiBo is like a little second mum anyway,’ she said.

“Before we found out I was pregnant they had been asking for a baby, so it’s worked out perfectly for them.’

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7:30pm on ITV.
