Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent, who plays Sophie Webster on the much-loved soap, has revealed she is expecting her second child with her partner Kean Bryan. 

"We wanted more children and we wanted them close together, so we're both really happy," the 28-year-old soap star told OK! magazine. 

Vincent and footballer Bryan are already parents to their one-year-old son Mexx. Speaking about Mexx becoming a big brother Vincent said: "It makes me want to cry thinking about it. I don’t think I’m a soppy person, but the thought of him being a big brother and being caring really does make my little heart fuzzy."

Vincent also said she is quite "chilled" about having two children under the age of two. She said: "I'm quite chilled about it. I'm really lucky with Mexx, because he's a good baby.

"But I just think to myself, 'You don't have any other option!' So if he's up all night crying, I can't give him to anyone, so I have to just deal with it.

"It's a perk having them together and growing together – that's what I really wanted."
