The actress, who plays Sophie Webster on the soap, has been with Sheffield United player Bryan since 2016.

The couple announced their baby news in April, and Vincent told OK! magazine that she "always worried" becoming a mother would not happen for her.

She said: "I'm beside myself with happiness. I've been playing songs to the bump and sometimes I sit and cry abut how much I love my baby!

"I've always wanted to be a mum, so I'm really excited."

Vincent has appeared in Corrie since 2004, and over the years she has also had TV stints on Dancing On Ice and Soapstar Superstar.

Vincent's former Corrie co-star Catherine Tyldesley was among those congratulating her, writing on Instagram: "Love you so much. Well done beautiful xxx."
