Coronation Street star Sam Aston's wife Briony gives birth to baby girl
Coronation Street's Sam Aston has become a dad for the second time!
The actor's wife has given birth to a baby girl, giving their son Sonny a little sister.
The couple have not revealed her name as of yet, but opened up about the pregnancy in a new interview following the birth.
They shared a first snap of their daughter with the world.
Briony told OK! Magazine: "We were actually trying not to get pregnant! [Laughs] Just because Sonny was so premature – my concern was having two too close together and having another premature baby. But it just happened!"
She continued: "Like with Sonny, I just knew I was pregnant – something was a little bit off and I didn't feel well. I took a test and obviously it was positive. It was a bit of a shock for Sam!"
She also talked about her husband's response to the news.
"I think his exact words were: 'Are you having a laugh?'" she said.
Sam added: "It was said in a joking way! It's fantastic news. It sounds like I wasn't pleased but I really was. It's just that with Sonny it was as planned as it could be, whereas this happened out of the blue."
The soap star revealed his wife was pregnant again in October in an adorable post on Instagram.
Sitting in a pumpkin patch little Sonny, sporting a sweet rainbow jumper, held up a sign that read: "We're adding another pumpkin to our patch! Due Spring 2022".
Speaking about his shock when he found out the sex of the new baby Sam said: "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!
"There are twins in Briony’s family, so when we went in I was a bit nervous and said, 'There’s definitely only one in there, right?' He said, 'There’s only one!' and then told us it was a girl!", he previously told the publication.
The pair married in 2019 two years after announcing their engagement.
