What did Coronation Street star Sam Aston say about having a baby girl?
Now, in an interview with OK! magazine, Sam and Briony have finally confirmed the gender of the newest addition to the family.
They told the mag that they were feeling “very lucky” to be expecting the arrival of a baby girl in the spring.
Sam revealed to the publication that he was expecting to have another boy before he learned the news that baby number two was going to be a girl.
“I could see us having another boy so it was a really nice surprise. I was quite shocked, I don’t know why, because it’s a 50/50 chance!” the 28-year-old said. Sam also spoke about how he was a bit nervous that he and Briony would be expecting twins, as there are twins in his wife’s family.
The couple also said they believe it was destined that they had a little girl this time around. They spoke about how they only had girls name’s that they liked in mind, unlike last time when it was just boys names they had in mind.
However, Briony admitted that her second pregnancy came as a surprise, and so they feel “very lucky” to be expecting again.
What else did the couple say?
Briony, 26, who is a yoga teacher, also spoke about how their family isn’t complete. She said she told her husband that just because they have “one of each” that doesn’t mean they’ve stopped growing their family yet.
As well as discussing their family’s exciting future, Sam also opened up about raising Sonny during lockdown. The actor said that because of restrictions, he wasn’t working for the first five months of Sonny’s life.
