Since the birth of baby Reuben Boyd Harris in Emmerdale a huge amount has changed for his parents Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland) and Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb).

For Mackenzie, recently married to Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins), it's seen his marriage go up in flames after Charity realised that he was the father of the baby and he'd been lying to her for months. While Mackenzie is devastated at the loss of Charity, he's developing a new bond with his baby son.

For Chloe there's been the profound change of being a mother, which was accelerated when Reuben was dangerously ill in hospital. Chloe refused to leave her son's side until she knew he was going to be ok. Jessie Elland told us that this brought out a toughness that was already present in her character.

'I think she's used to getting her own way, she was maybe a bit spoilt when she was younger. I think being a mum has really brought that fight out in her and put it front and centre,' she said.

As Mackenzie gets more involved in Reuben's life, he and Chloe start drawing closer together, as Jessie explained.

While her sister Amy Wyatt (Natalie Ann Jamieson) advises her not to go after Mackenzie, because of how Charity and the other Dingles are likely to react, Jessie told us that it's the 'Wyatt' in her own character that makes Chloe ignore the advice.

'Chloe being Chloe she wants to fight for what's right for her and right for Reuben,' she insisted. 'I think she does have a streak of stubbornness which is probably like a Wyatt trait - if somebody tells you don't do it it's like, well why not? I want to do it now!

'I do think there's almost an element of ruthlessness, for want of a better word, that being a mum has brought out. She's putting Reuben and the kind of family she wants for Reuben and the stability she wants for Reuben over the guilt she feels for Charity.'
