The Happy Valley star told the magazine she had a water birth at London’s Whittington Hospital on October 21 saying:

“It was a rush to get to the hospital and by the time we were checked in, Rose was born within 1hr and 40 mins!”

Revealing why she didn’t publicise the latest addition to her family sooner, Katherine explained:

“We didn’t go out of our way to keep it a secret but we didn’t announce the pregnancy so people were not immediately on bump watch.

“It’s been wonderful to have this precious time just for us.”

The star of BBC3 Doctor Who spin-off Class Tweeted about her new arrival.

She also revealed not being one of Corrie’s biggest stars any more has helped her keep things private.

“It is different if you are in something like Corrie, as you can’t keep it quiet. It leaks within a second as paparazzi are always at the gates.”
