Joy for Eve Myles at birth of first daughter
THE Swansea Valley-born star of Torchwood is turning her back on TV for a while after becoming a mum for the first time.
Eve Myles and partner Brad Freegard are "over the moon" with the arrival of baby Matilda.
"She is absolutely beautiful and we are obviously totally delighted. She is just the loveliest thing ever," said 31-year-old Eve, from Ystradgynlais.
"Her full name is Matilda Myles Freegard. We've wanted a baby for a long time and have had names ready for a boy and a girl for the past three years. I just think it's very pretty and it really suits her."
Eve, who also stars in BBC Wales drama series Belonging, says the scripts are piling up but she is in no rush to return to work.
She added: "I'm just enjoying Matilda so much."
