Coronation Street's Paula Lane is pregnant.

The 29-year-old actress - who plays Kylie Platt in the ITV soap - will welcome her second child with husband Tom Shaw in the summer.

Announcing the news on Twitter, Paula wrote: “News just in... The new addition to the Shaw clan will be arriving summer time and @SirTomShaw and I are thrilled! #doubletrouble”

The couple already have one child together, son Arthur who was born on December 31, 2014.

Paula and Tom tied the knot in May 2014.

Meanwhile, Paula recently admitted it can be hard juggling work with raising her baby but she feels lucky that the little boy is so content as it makes things easier.

She said: “It's been very hard but I've got a great support network at home and at work.

“I've not had sleepless nights either, I've been very lucky. He's a very good baby and very content. It's a whole new ball game but I love the chaos.”


The actress hates it when work means she doesn't get home before Arthur goes to bed so she tries to make the most of the time they do get together.

She said: “I don't do any work until he goes to bed. Sometimes I miss him when he's gone to bed and I'm not even home from work yet.

“It's hard when you don't see your baby's eyes open for three days in a row. But mummy time is mummy time and as soon as he's in bed I can concentrate more - and there's no little hands trying to grab my script.”
