Coronation Street star Jennie McAlpine has welcomed a baby girl named Hilda.

It is the 34-year-old soap star's second child with husband Chris Farr.

In a post on Twitter, McAlpine shared their baby news saying: "Our newest addition arrived yesterday. Mummy and Daddy very happy.

"Big brother very proud of his little sister Hilda. We're all in love."

The couple, who have been together since 2005, first became parents in 2014 when their son Albert was born.

McAlpine's Corrie co-stars were quick to congratulate her:

Simply the best news ! Welcome Hilda what a ride you have ahead of you xxx
