Jennie McAlpine and her partner Chris Farr have secretly gotten married
'Coronation Street's Jennie McAlpine has secretly tied the knot.
The 32-year-old actress and her partner Chris Farr - who welcomed son Albert together in 2015 - have revealed that they got married in a low-key ceremony earlier this week.
Taking to Twitter on Friday (06.01.17), Jennie shared a picture of their hands with wedding rings and wrote: "So, we went to Trafford Town Hall earlier this week and had a bit of a special day (sic)."
Co-stars past and present rushed to congratulate her, with Katie McGlynn, who plays Sinead Tinker, tweeting: "yay!!!" while Wendi Peters, who played Cilla Battersby, wrote: "lots of love xxxx (sic)."
Tupele Dorgu, who previously played Kelly Crabtree, wrote: "oh my word! How exciting. Congratulations. Knew youd give in one day Heres to many yrs of wedded bliss xxx (sic)."
Jennie and Chris met through her 'Coronation Street' co-star Antony Cotton, who plays Sean Tully.
Speaking previously, she explained: "Antony kept saying he had a friend I should meet and one day he called me up one day and said, 'I'm here with your future husband. Do you want me to put him on the phone?'. It was weird that he was so convinced that Chris was so right for me, and even more bizarre that he actually was. Our personality traits really complement each other.
"We get on so well and things are great. Now Albert's come along we share the care and have him with us all the time. He's at the centre of our lives."
