Neighbours stars on playing mum

There's nothing more satisfying for an actor than to have their role enhanced, and this is literally the case for Neighbours' Eve Morey and Alin Sumarwata.

There is nothing more satisfying for an actor than to have their roles enhanced, and this is literally the case for Neighbours stars Eve Morey and Alin Sumarwata.  Here is a sneak peek of how the gorgeous duo are expanding on the set at the moment.

Playing Sonya Mitchell and Vanessa Villante, the two glamorous expectant yummy mummies have been sporting burgeoning bellies for the last four months.

The soap’s costume department have a cupboard of strap on tummies for each tri-semester the character is experiencing

Alin knows first-hand what it’s like to have a bump having become a first-time mum late last year to a gorgeous baby girl.

'The best part about this pregnancy is I can regain my waist in a matter of seconds at the end of each day,' jokes Alin.

For Eve Morey, her character’s pregnancy is a dream come true.

'I think I wore down the writers to give Toadie and Sonya a baby for ages,' says Eve.  'After everything they have been through, it just seems like the most natural thing for these characters.'

This is the first time two regular characters have been pregnant at the same time, providing some great interaction as well as lots of laughs.

'Sonya and Vanessa have been able to play off each other sharing their experiences,' explains Eve.  'And it doesn’t end there; we have the labour and babies all ahead of us - lots of great stuff to work with.'

Two newborn babies cast as Sonya andVanessa’s offspring are set to arrive on-air in the coming months.

    Gaby Willis and Cheryl Stark both got pregnant at the same time in 1994 . Gaby wanted to call her son Shannon and Cheryl wanted to call her daughter Shannon. When Lou and Doug went to register the kids they realised this, and the kids were known by their middle names, Zak and Louise

    with Sonya having a girl, Vanessa will most likely have a boy.

    This isn't the first instance of two regular characters being pregnant at the same time.
