Samia Longchambon believes her dead dad sent Sylvain Longchambon to her in 2013
Samia Longchambon is convinced her late father sent her now-husband Sylvain to her.
The 'Coronation Street' star met the professional skater when they were paired together for 'Dancing on Ice' in 2013 and, although they were both dating other people at the time, they quickly fell in love on the ice and the 35-year-old beauty is convinced her dad Joseph Ghadie - who died in 2009 from cancer - set them up from above.
Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Tuesday (19.09.17), she said: "I do think there was some fate involved in that [them getting together]. Maybe it was my angels because I do believe in them. I always think my dad is looking over me and I always think my dad sent him [Sylvain] to me because I didn't want to do the show."
The couple - who came under fire for their relationship - got engaged in 2015 and later that year their son Yves Joseph, now 23 months old, was born. They then tied the knot in a romantic ceremony last year and celebrated their one-year anniversary last month.
Although they live together in Manchester, Sylvain, 37 - who was born and raised in Saint-Priest, France - speaks to their son in French and the little one is now bilingual.
Samia - who also has seven-year-old daughter Freya from a previous relationship - explained: "Well Sylvain just speaks to Yves - my little boy - in French so he's bilingual pretty much. She'll be eight next year, she picks it up.
"When we go over to France, our nieces, who are Freya's age, pick up a bit of English and she picks up a bit of French but she's going to have to step up her game because Yves will be taking over otherwise. It's a nice thing to have."
