Samia Ghadie and Sylvain Longchambon have revealed they are expecting a baby boy
Samia Ghadie and Sylvain Longchambon are having a baby boy.
The 'Coronation Street' actress - who already has a five-year-old daughter Freya with ex-husband Matthew Smith - has revealed she expecting her first son with the former 'Dancing on Ice' star after announcing her pregnancy in March.
She said: "We actually found out after the twenty week scan but we wanted to wait for a while before we told people."
The brunette beauty - who plays Maria Connor on the ITV soap - was also shocked to find munching on a chocolate bar could help doctors reveal the sex of the couple's baby.
She explained: "At the scan they told us the baby had its legs crossed, so we thought we wouldn't be able to find out. W were a little disappointed. Halfway through they told me to go and have some chocolate or a fizzy drink to try and get the baby to move.
"I had a bar of chocolate and I think the sugar might have just made the baby move around. At the end of the scan they got me to move around and the baby moved again. It was quite obvious we were expecting a boy."
Samia, 32, added she and Sylvain, 34, are thrilled to be having a brother for Freya and thinks her beau is especially pleased as he'll no longer be "outnumbered" by girls.
She told OK! magazine: "I was just over the moon. I feel so lucky that we will have one of each now. A lot of people don't have that luxury. If it had been a girl, I would have still felt the same just knowing that everything is alright is the main thing.
"I'm pleased for Sylvain because he's been saying for ages that he's outnumbered with all the girls in his family. It will even up the numbers a bit for him."
