A woman says she is pregnant with her window cleaner's baby after being charmed by his accent.
Gemma Stephenson, 36, first caught eye of window cleaner Sean Nodwell, 37, when he was working on her neighbours' home.
Gemma said she was charmed by Sean's soft Scouse accent and his helpful offers of assisting her with the food shopping from the car to the house – and the pair soon caught stronger feelings for each other.

She told the Liverpool Echo: "I first saw Sean in my next-door neighbours' garden as I was coming from the car with my weekly shop. He said hello to me in a soft Scouse accent and offered to help me with the shopping, which was really sweet but to which I politely declined.
"At this point, I thought that was a really nice gesture, as I had been a single mum for many years and was used to doing this kind of thing by myself.
"A few weeks later, I saw him again on my estate and he asked how I was doing and offered me his window cleaning service in the future, to which I agreed as my neighbour had also recommended him.
"Out of the blue, approximately a week or so later, he walked into my garden carrying his ladders and a bucket and made a cheeky remark, saying, 'alright love, I've come to clean your windows for you'.
"While he started work, he shouted down to me, 'any chance of a brew like haha' so I made him a cuppa and he came down and we started talking about our lives.
"The next time he came round, he was full of smiles and genuinely seemed happy in himself and we continued our regular brews and chats together in the garden during him working.

"I enjoyed seeing Sean because he always made me laugh and we would talk about the most crazy things, from music to kids to gardening."
With a career change in mind, Sean and and Gemma didn't see each other for months – but got back in touch for his leaving drinks down the pub after he split with his wife.
Their farewell, however, actually turned out to be the start of a new romance when Sean contacted Gemma to say he wanted to take her out.
Gemma, who lives in Catterick Garrison, North Yorkshire, with her two children from a previous relationship, said: "He contacted me seeing what I was doing and he said he was looking forward to the weekend as he had been busy at work and didn't have much planned.
"We continued to chat a bit more until half an hour into the conversation, he said 'I'm going to get a train now and come see you, is that ok?'
"That night, we chatted until the early hours of the morning, playing poker, having a few drinks and laughing like teenagers."
The pair continued to go on dates, going on trips to Blackpool and Wakefield on the weekends – and doing the rounds at karaoke bars and restaurants, staying in hotels and going for spa days.
The love birds couldn't believe it though when they discovered that Gemma was pregnant in February this year – and now they are happier than ever.
Sean, who now works as a warehouse operative, said: "Gemma and I, we're going well. Finding out we had a baby on the way was a bit of a shock to the system.
"We found out we're having a baby boy – we're calling him Joseph, not after the technicolour dreamcoat, but Joseph my granddad.
"You never know when you're going to meet someone. I'm looking forward to bringing Joseph up and being a happy, normal family, and he could be a Man United fan too."
Gemma said: "The good times just didn't seem to end. We were living a carefree life of fun, passion and excitement – it was like a rollercoaster and the ride just got better.
"We met up whenever we had free time and then I discovered that I was pregnant and went into total shock mode. Four months later, we are happier than ever to be having our first baby together."
