Katherine Kelly and her husband Ryan Clark have welcomed their first child, a baby girl.

An ITV representative confirmed that the former Coronation Street star gave birth to her daughter on Tuesday (March 11).

The couple have named their newborn baby Orla Clark.

Clark said in a statement released to Digital Spy: "Katherine has given me the best gift in the world. Absolutely smitten with Orla and so proud of my wife."

Kelly, who played the character of Becky McDonald on Coronation Street, announced her pregnancy last September, a month after she and Clark married in Las Vegas.

The actress plays Lady Mae Loxley in the ITV drama Mr Selfridge, which has been renewed for a third season, due to air in 2015.
