Major congratulations are in order today, as it has been announced that Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley has given birth to her first child.


The star and her partner, Tom Pitfield, welcomed a baby boy this week, with the actress announcing the news on her social media channels.


“We made a wish and you came true. Welcome Alfie James Pitfield. We love you beyond words,” wrote the 31-year-old, adding in the hashtag ‘besotted’.


What a gorgeous name – we love it!



Catherine, best known for her role as Eva in the much-loved soap, had recently shared a number of selfies of her blooming bump, showing that baby’s arrival wasn’t too far off.


The star, known for her outspoken views, had previously expressed her intention to have a hypnobirth, insisting that ‘nature knows best’ when it comes to baby’s birth.



We’re sure Catherine will reveal all in the coming few weeks. In the meantime, we wish her every congratulations.
