Charley Webb, who we all know as "Debbie Dingle" in Emmerdale, recently shared another cute picture of her third son Ace on Instagram, just a couple of days after giving fans a glimpse at her new baby. The gorgeous picture shows little Ace lying in his cot. The actress, who plays "Debbie Dingle", also broke the news that she has - together with her family - decided to store Ace's stem cells.
Emmerdale star Charley Webb wants "what's best for our children."
In the caption of Ace's cute new picture, Webb opens up about how she and her husband Matthew Wolfenden came to the decision: "We decided to store Ace's stem cells. As parents every single one of us wants to do what’s best for our children. When I was pregnant, I heard about the possibility of collecting and storing my baby's umbilical cord stem cells, which could then be used in the future should they be needed for treatment (I hope with every part of me we never need it)."
The "Debbie Dingle" actress went on: "After researching, we learned that the baby's umbilical cord is a valuable source of stem cells, and these cells can be collected at birth and stored. These could then be used as a crucial part of treating or curing an illness. Currently, there are over 80 diseases cord blood stem cells can treat. [...]. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I’m so grateful we were able to do this. Xx."
