Danny Miller certainly won’t forget where he was when he found he was going to become a dad, as the Emmerdale actor has revealed he was in the middle of filming a huge episode.
Opening up about the moment his fiancée Steph Jones told him she was pregnant, Danny told OK! he was filming last month’s dramatic barn explosion scenes, which saw Mandy and Paul’s wedding day end in disaster when Paul was fatally injured by the explosion.
Steph, who is a midwife, admits she struggled to get hold of her fiancé to tell him the good news because he was tied up with the intense storyline.
She tells us: “We’ve done so many tests that were negative so I wasn’t expecting it to be positive – I couldn’t believe it!
"I was shaking and trying to ring Danny, but he wasn’t answering because he was on set.”
Danny, who plays Aaron Dingle on the Dales, adds: “We were filming the barn explosion storyline. When I saw how many times she had rang me I had a feeling.
"I thought, either she’s pregnant or something serious is going on.”
The pair were just days away from starting IVF treatment in order to conceive, so the exciting news was all the more special for Danny, 30, to receive.
In the interview – which you can read in full here – He continued: “Usually my phone is on flight mode but that day I knew she wasn’t feeling good, she hadn’t had her period and we were just about to start the IVF, so I just put it on silent.

“I had to text her saying I couldn’t speak, but she replied saying ring me but with three Ns and four Es!”
“The next take was long but then luckily they turned the cameras off and I said to the first assistant I was going to make a call.
“I rang Steph and she was laughing but crying and I just knew. With us being with the IVF consultant the day before, I was in complete shock.”

Danny added of the emotion of the moment: “I started crying. It’s making me emotional to think about it now.
“I bought another pregnancy test on the way home, not that she had to prove it, but I just wanted that moment for us.”
Danny and Steph have been together for two years but first met in primary school.
Back in January the actor popped the question to the NHS worker during a romantic beach dinner in St Lucia, where they were celebrating Danny’s 30th birthday.
