Home and Away star Sophie Dillman has revealed how her character’s storyline on the soap has led to candid discussions with her boyfriend Patrick O’Connor.

The 30-year-old told, her character Ziggy Astoni’s pregnancy has opened up discussions about baby plans with Patrick.

‘I feel quite blessed being able to practise all of the pregnancy things without the actual pregnancy,’ she said.

‘You know, Ziggy got everything – she got nausea, fatigue, mood swings, pain, Braxton Hicks, all that sort of stuff.’

She continued: ‘Going through all of that, especially with your real-life partner, actually brings up a lot of conversation that I don’t think a lot of people would have unless they are literally carrying a fake pregnancy belly around.’

The couple play on- and off-screen couple Dean Thompson and Ziggy Astoni on Home and Away.

It comes after Sophie recently revealed how her and Patrick’s first date was not as romantic as she had hoped.

Sophie had been rushed to hospital due to an endometriosis flare-up so was in excruciating pain when they went for dinner at Newtown burger joint Mary’s.

She felt so bad she was forced to sit on the footpath at one stage.

‘I said, “I have to sit down, right now.” And [Patrick] was like, “Sophie, we’re on King Street, you can’t sit down!”‘ she recalled.

‘So I was sitting in a laneway, and I rang my mum and I was like, “Mum, I’ve got to go to hospital, it’s so bad, I don’t have enough painkillers.”

‘My sister was giving me all this advice as well, and he’d never seen anything like that before, the poor guy!’

She said that despite the fact Patrick ‘went white’, he did everything he could to support her, which was a major green flag.
