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 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!
There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a happily sleeping baby. After hours (or what feels like it) trying to soothe them, when they finally drift off and silence reigns once again there’s something rewarding in peeking through the door, or checking your baby monitor and seeing your baby sound asleep.
