Inside ex-EastEnders star Melissa Suffield’s home with huge garden after she gives birth to first baby

EX-Eastenders star Melissa Suffield has created the most gorgeous home for baby River Jefferson to grow up in.

The actress – who played Lucy Beale on the BBC soap from 2004 to 2010 – welcomed her first child into the world alongside fiance Robert Brendan in March.

The couple's living room features a comfy teal coloured sofa, some wooden storage cupboards and a cute little Moses basket for River to have a snooze in.

Melissa has added her own personal touch to the space with a collection of personal family photos which hang across the white walls.

Moving upstairs, the master bedroom features a huge wooden framed double bed with all white bedding.

To add a bit of sparkle to the room, the new mum has hung fairy lights above their bed.






The rest of the room has matching wooden furniture, including a huge wardrobe, shelves and mirror.

When River is old enough he has plenty of space to run around in their huge garden which features a funky bamboo style fence.

Before lockdown hit, Melissa gave birth to her baby boy River Jefferson and took to Instagram to share the happy news.

She told her fans: “River Jefferson Carter-Robinson. 16.03.2020



“What a perfect little human we appear to have made. We could not be more obsessed with you.”

In September 2019, The Sun Online revealed that the 26-year-old actress was expecting her first child with her husband to be.

In October, Melissa admitted that she was scared her baby will be a "p***k" in a candid post about having "cellulite everywhere" and a "hairy belly".

The new mum first shot to fame at aged 11 as Ian Beale's daughter in EastEnders.


She and 37-year-old Robert previously told us that they were due to welcome their bundle of joy in mid-March.

The pair met in 2017 while performing in a production of Beauty and the Beast together.

The romance has since gone from strength to strength, with the loved-up couple buying a house together earlier this year.

In July 2019, the star announced that she is engaged on her social media page, sharing a snap of her dazzling diamond ring and the caption: "#ISaidYaass @mrrobertbrendan."


Although the third actress to put their face to Ian Beale's only daughter in BBC One soap, Melissa was the first recognisable star to take on the role and appeared as a series regular for six years.

She then decided to leave the show just weeks before her 18th birthday.

The role was reprised by Hetti Bywater and Lucy was murdered by her little brother Bobby Beale in 2014.
