Sam Aston and his wife Briony were over the moon when they found out they were expecting a second child – and they've now revealed to OK! that the baby a baby girl.
And as we caught up with the couple at their festive gender reveal shoot, Briony told OK! about the moment she told her husband the happy news, which came as a bit of a "shock" to the Coronation Street star.
"Sam hadn’t been well and he was in bed, so I asked how he was feeling and if I could get him anything," the 26 year old, who also shares 16 month old Sonny with Sam, explained.
"He asked for some water. Last time, when I told him I was pregnant with Sonny, I made him eggs and put them on a board that read, 'Daddy, you’re a good egg,' so I put the water on that same board and I put Sonny on my hip holding the pregnancy test.
"I went into the room and I said, 'I’m pleased you’re feeling a bit better because…' and I just passed him the pregnancy test!
"I think his exact words were, 'Are you having a laugh?'. He said: “We need to burn that wooden board because every time I see it there’s a pregnancy test!'”
And while they describe the news that they're having a girl as "amazing" and a "nice surprise", the couple told OK! they weren't actually trying to conceive their second baby so soon.
"We were actually trying not to get pregnant! [Laughs]," the yoga instructor explained.
"Just because Sonny was so premature – my concern was having two too close together and having another premature baby. But it just happened!
"Like with Sonny, I just knew I was pregnant – something was a little bit off and I didn’t feel well. I took a test and obviously it was positive. It was a bit of a shock for Sam!"
And when it comes to juggling two young children, Sam has turned to his Corrie co-stars for advice.
"I’ve asked Andy Whyment a few questions and he’s been great, " Sam said.
"He has Tom and Hollie, and their gap is quite similar. He was really happy for us. He’s always a great friend and support system, and we talk a lot outside of work.
"I think I may also have to call Brooke Vincent for some tips as she has a similar age gap, too," he added.
