Samia Ghadie has given birth to a baby boy.
The 'Coronation Street' actress welcomed her first child with fiance Sylvain Longchambon on Thursday (24.09.15) after undergoing a caesarean section.
She wrote on Twitter: "@slongchambon and I are so happy and in love beyond words with our beautiful boy... (sic)."
The 33-year-old star - who also has five-year-old daughter Freya with ex-husband Matthew Smith - revealed she and Sylvain have decided to name their newborn Yves Joseph.
The couple told OK! that they chose the first name as a tribute to Sylvain's brother and the middle name to Samia's late father.
Yves Joseph entered the world at a healthy weight of 8lb and 9oz.
Samia and Sylvain - who are preparing to tie the knot next year - first met when the brunette beauty was partnered with the professional skater on 'Dancing On Ice' in 2013.
And Samia recently admitted she's going to miss being pregnant despite the fact she's been suffering with back pain.
She explained: "My hair has been in great condition and my nails have been so strong due to all the pregnancy hormones flying around. Even my skin seems to have been better!
"I think that's due to the fact that you have double the amount of blood in your body when you're pregnant which supposedly gives you that famous 'pregnancy glow' people talk about!"
