And it wasn’t just Corrie fans who were reacting the news online, Jennie’s co-stars were sharing their congratulations with the actress too.

This is baby number two for Jennie and her husband Chris Farr who are already parents to Albert who Jennie gave birth to back in November 2014.

Jennie and Chris started dating back in 2005 and married in 2017.

After welcoming baby Albert, Jennie spoke about her thoughts on not returning to work and staying at home to be a full-time mum.

“There were times on my maternity leave where I thought I’d like to be a full-time mum and there are times I still think that.

“I’d like to have two parallel lives, one just with Albert all the time and one being at work all the time. That would be great.”
