From her husband, to her two year old child, here’s what we know about Nicola’s family life.

Coronation Street confirmed Nicola had given birth on Twitter, but the actress herself has not since shared any information about her son – including his name.
When asked what name she had decided on, she told WhatsOnTV: “Do you know what, I’m keeping that to myself, so that people don’t nick it!
“I have friends in the business and when they’ve given their child’s name out, people have messaged them on Twitter and said, ‘What a horrible name.’ I’m keeping it to myself because ‘Barry’ isn’t popular… I’m joking!”
Who is Nicola Wheeler’s boyfriend?
Nicola has kept a lot of her life out of the public eye, including her partner.
Even avid fans of the actress do not know a lot about her partner, except that his name is Matt.
Talking about working with her partner after the birth of her baby, Nicola said: “I am really lucky that me and my partner are sharing the childcare.
“But we have said that the hardest work is looking after the kid all day!
"Coming to work is like a holiday – I can actually come to work and do things like look at the Internet, do some shopping, get some yoga in, or just sit and do b***** all.”
Is Nicola Wheeler pregnant?
In December 2016, fans of Emmerdale were convinced that Nicola was pregnant with her second child.
Fans shared their suspicions on Twitter, with one writing: “Hope I'm not being cheeky but I'm sure I saw a 'bump' on Nicola as she walked with Lauren. Hope this isn't an oops moment."
Nicola shut down the rumours following the episode with a simple tweet, sharing: “Just to confirm the bump is a bun in the oven BUT of the cake variety! I’m no pregnant, just a bit too well fed.”
While the Emmerdale actress has kept her relationship away from the spotlight, other stars of the show have not been able to.
