Coronation Street actor Jack P Shepherd has announced that he and long-time girlfriend Lauren Shippey are expecting another child together.

This will be the couple's second child together; they already have a four-year-old daughter called Nyla.

Taking to Twitter, Shepherd wrote: "Me and @LaurenShippey are pleased to announce we are expecting a baby, we are both very happy."

The actor added: "Thank you for all your comments, on the baby news guys means a lot. Glad it's out there now! XxxXxxX."

This is the third child for Corrie star Shepherd. The 25-year-old actor is also father to a baby boy, born in 2010.

Shepherd plays David Platt on Coronation Street and his character is currently also awaiting the birth of a child, though viewers are still unsure whether his wife Kylie (Paula Lane) is carrying David's child or his brother Nick's (Ben Price).

"Thanks for all your kind tweets for me and @LaurenShippey ... I like the "is it Nicks?" Comments haha," Shepherd tweeted on Friday night.
