Julia Goulding has announced she's pregnant with her first child.
The Coronation Street star is expecting a baby with her husband Ben Silver, with the news coming just a few months after their wedding day.
The 34-year-old star shared a picture of herself and her beau looking ecstatic as she shared the news with her fans.
The actress, who plays Shona Ramsey in the ITV soap, said: "Ben and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting our first baby at the end of this year!
"We are absolutely overjoyed and can’t wait to meet our little one!"
They were congratulated by Corrie stars including Lucy Fallon and Samia Longchambon.
Fallon simply posted crying emojis and a love heart, while Longchambon wrote: "Whoop!! So happy for you both Jules!"
Corrie fans were also thrilled. One commented: "Awww congrats! So happy for you!"
"So so thrilled for you," another told her.
Julia, who is the on-screen lover of Jack P Shepherd's character David Platt, and teacher Ben tied the knot on stage in Manchester’s Albert Hall in February.
She told OK! Magazine : "I love being on stage and I always wanted to get married on one."
Ben said of seeing his wife-to-be for the first time in her dress: "As soon as I saw Julia, I just knew it was the best day of my life."
Julia explained that her dad "didn’t mind" not walking her down the aisle to give her away and said: "The way we did it felt right for Ben and I."
Julia had been dating Ben for three years, when he proposed to her on his 30th birthday, and they decided to keep it secret for 10 months.
She told him she had booked a surprise trip to New York for him and then he got down on one knee, which Julia said: "I wasn't expecting it at all."
The pair recently made the move from London to Manchester so that they could live close to the Corrie set.
