Coronation Street star Sam Aston and wife Briony first revealed that they’re expecting another child back in October.
Sam, who portrays Chesney Brown in the ITV serial drama, made the announcement on social media at the time, sharing a snap of on Sonny standing in front of four pumpkins.
Sonny was holding up a sign which revealed the happy news.
‘We’re adding another pumpkin to our patch!,’ it read, ‘Due Spring 2022.’
Briony shared the same picture on her own Instagram account, captioning it simply with a sparkle emoji.
The couple have now confirmed that they’re expecting a baby girl.
Briony told OK! magazine: ‘It’s so exciting. We would have been pleased either way, but it’s really amazing. We feel very lucky we’ll have one of each.’
Sam added: ‘I could see us having another boy, so it was a really nice surprise.
‘I was quite shocked. I don’t know why, because it’s a 50/50 chance!’
‘I don’t know how people [wait to find out],” Briony said. ‘I’m too impatient. With Sonny we found out, and we only had one boy’s name we liked and no girls’ names. This time we have a girl’s name but no boys’ names, so I think it’s meant to be.
‘It was a big surprise finding out I was pregnant again, so we feel very lucky. We were actually trying not to get pregnant!
‘Just because Sonny was so premature – my concern was having two too close together and having another premature baby. But it just happened!’
