Coronation Street star Sam Aston and wife Briony have announced that they have welcomed their second child, a baby girl.

The actor, who plays Chesney Brown on the ITV soap, had last Autumn revealed the happy news of the pending arrival on his Instagram page with an autumnal themed picture of their then 14-month-old son Sonny.

In the photo, Sonny was standing beside four pumpkins and holding a sign that reads: "We're adding another pumpkin to our patch. Due Spring 2022."

The pair shared the news of the arrival with OK Magazine saying that they had not expected to have a second child so quickly: "My concern was having two too close together and having another premature baby. But it just happened!"

The pair who met when they were teenagers were married in May 2019.
