'Emmerdale' actor Chris Bisson has welcomed his second child, a baby girl into the world, after announcing his partner Rowena Finn was expecting earlier this year
'Emmerdale' actor Chris Bisson has welcomed a baby girl.
Chris - who plays Jai Sharma in the ITV soap - took to his Twitter account earlier today (08.12.15) to announce that he and his partner Rowena Finn have welcomed their second child together.
He wrote: "Delighted to announce the safe arrival of Ella Rose, our beautiful baby girl. What an amazing morning! @row_finn and I are overjoyed. (sic)"
The couple - who first got together in 2006 - already have two-year-old son Harry together.
Chris discovered his wife was expecting their second child on his 40th birthday earlier this year.
He said at the time: "It was the best birthday present ever. For the first time, I saw our baby's face and she was sleeping with her little hand behind her head, just like Harry and I do.
"Because Harry was with us and he's a bit of a chatterbox - he would have announced it to everyone - we asked the doctor to tell us in terms of colour. When she said, 'You've got a little pink one', we were ecstatic.
"I'd hoped, deep down, that our second child would be a girl and my wish came true."
The news came as a surprise to Rowena, 32, as she was convinced she was carrying another boy.
She said: "We're used to having a little boy around and know exactly what to expect from a boy so it was fixed in my mind that Harry would have a younger brother.
"Yet my pregnancy was very different this time - I felt more poorly, lost my appetite and became tired quickly. Everyone told me this meant I was expecting a girl but I didn't believe it until the doctor confirmed it."
