Coronation Street’s Samia announced her pregnancy on Twitter

Samia Ghadie is expecting a baby with her boyfriend Sylvain Longchambon. 

The 32-year-old Coronation Street actress, who plays Maria Connor in the ITV soap opera, announced on Twitter that she and her boyfriend - who she met on Dancing on Ice in 2013 - are expecting their first child together. 

The soap star - who has one daughter, Freya, from her previous marriage to Matthew Smith - tweeted: “Me and @slongchambon have some very happy news to share.. We are having a baby!! Freya can’t wait to be a big sister later this year!”

Sylvain retweeted Samia’s original message, and wrote his own a day later, saying: “A big thank you to everyone for your kind messages, @realsamia and I are very happy and excited!!”

Since announcing their news, the couple have been inundated with congratulatory messages. 

Fellow Corrie actress Catherine Tyldesley, who stars as Eva Price and who recently welcomed her first child Alfie James, sent her best wishes. 

She tweeted: “So thrilled for you guys!!! What a baby boom!!! Awesome news!!! Love me @TP_PTfitness and Alfie xxx”

Samia and Slyvain were partnered on Dancing on Ice and became a couple shortly after the actress was eliminated from the show.
