Coronation Street’s Tina O’Brien Announces She’s Pregnant With Her Second Baby!

It’s been quite the day for celebrity pregnancies – first there were the rumours surrounding Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, and now Coronation Street star Tina O’Brien has confirmed she is expecting.

The 30-year-old actress took to Twitter this afternoon to tell her followers that she and partner Adam Crofts are pregnant with their first child together, who will be a baby brother or sister to her five-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

‘So @adstraining85 and I have some lovely news.....’ she captioned an image of her ultrasound scan.

An hour later, she tweeted: ‘Thanks for your lovely comments we are so happy! Can't wait to have a little brother or sister for Scarlett to boss around.’

Her Corrie co-star Samia Ghadie was quick to add her congratulations, writing: ‘Woohoo!! Amazing news guys.. Huge hugs n love!! Xx’

Hollyoaks’ Nikki Sanderson tweeted: ‘Omg congratulations sweetie!! That's fantastic news!! Lots of love to u all xxx’

Tina posted this ultrasound of her unborn baby

Tina has been with 28-year-old personal trainer Adam for three years since they met in a coffee shop.

She can actually thank her little daughter for their chance encounter, as she told Reveal.

‘I remember walking in with Scarlett and she spotted this guy sitting at a table with a laptop.

‘She’s so chatty and went over to say, “Hello, man!” I was about to tell her not to talk to strangers, when I looked at him. It turned out he was seriously fit! I thought, “Good choice, Scarlett,” and asked his name.’

Although Tina said she wasn’t looking for romance at the time – she had just split up with Scarlett’s father, Corrie’s Ryan Thomas – but as they got on so well she said yes when he asked her out a few weeks later.

‘So Scarlett was basically my matchmaker!’ Tina added.

How’s that for a story? We wish Tina, Adam and Scarlett all the best – and we’re looking forward to seeing Tina’s baby bump!
