Home and Away’s Sophie Dillman reveals how her character’s pregnancy led to baby plans

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

The 30-year-old told 7Entertainment her character Ziggy Astoni’s pregnancy sparked discussions about baby plans with Patrick.

“I feel pretty blessed to be able to practice all the pregnancy stuff without the actual pregnancy,” she said.

“You know, Ziggy has it all — she’s got nausea, fatigue, mood swings, pain, Braxton Hicks, all that stuff.”

She continued, “Going through all of this, especially with your real life partner, actually sparks a lot of conversations that I don’t think a lot of people would be having unless they’re literally carrying around a fake pregnancy bump.”

The pair play on- and off-screen couple Dean Thompson and Ziggy Astoni in “Home and Away.”

It comes after Sophie recently revealed that her and Patrick’s first date wasn’t as romantic as she had hoped.

Sophie had been hospitalized with an endometriosis flare-up and was in excruciating pain when they went to dinner at Newtown’s burger joint, Mary’s.

She felt so bad that at one point she was forced to sit on the sidewalk.

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

“So I was sitting in an alley and I called my mom and said, ‘Mom, I have to go to the hospital, it’s so bad, I don’t have enough painkillers.’

“My sister gave me all that advice too, and he’s never seen anything like it, poor chap!”

She said that despite the fact that he “went white,” Patrick did everything he could to support her, which is a big green flag.
