Corrie’s Sam Aston feeling very lucky as he confirms wife is expecting baby girl

Coronation Street's Sam Aston announced in October that he and his wife Briony were expecting a second baby shortly after their son Sonny celebrated his first birthday – and they've now revealed it's a a baby girl.

In October Sam shared a snap to his Instagram of Sonny posing behind some pumpkins with a sign that read: "We're adding another pumpkin to our patch! Due Spring 2022."

The happy couple have now spilled more details to OK! as Sam told the publication they feel "very lucky" that they will have one of each as they confirmed they were expecting a baby girl.

When the pair announced that they were expecting their second child they were flooded with message of congratulations alongside the sweet snap.

It was just mere months before that Sam had praised his firstborn and gushed about the realities of becoming a dad following Sonny's first birthday.

Speaking to OK! Briony said parenthood was "the best thing ever", while Sam, who is best known for his role as Chesney Brown on Corrie, added: "There's nothing quite like it."

Sam opened up about raising his son in lockdown, telling the publication: "Because of the restrictions I ended up having the first four or five months of Sonny's life where I wasn't really working.

"If we have another I won't get that again, so I really cherished that time."

He explained that he was only able to see his son between 6pm and 7pm due to Covid-19 rules, adding: "It was a tricky and strange couple of weeks. It was so nice to get them both home and help out."

Sam and Briony welcomed their first son in 2020, a year after the duo tied the knot in a sweet ceremony surrounded by Corrie stars, family and friends.

The pair were engaged two years prior after Sam popped the question following their lengthy romance.

Although both Sam and Briony keep their personal lives off social media for the most part, the duo have both shared snippets of life with their son online.

While Sam works as an actor on the Cobbles, Briony is a yoga teacher and hypnobirthing instructor, with the business savvy beauty also launching her own business of Happy Baby Studio to support other parents in pregnancy.
