Followers congratulated the actress, including her Corrie co-stars.

Jane Danson wrote: “Welcome to the best club in the world. Congratulations!”

Michelle Hardwick: “Congratulations, gorgeous news.”

Another added: “Aw congratulations guys!! Can’t wait to see him!”

Last month, Hayley gave her fans an update on her baby.

Alongside a picture of her bump, the star wrote: “Morning!!!!!! Yep… still pregnant!!”

Back in June, Hayley had to defend herself after an online troll reacted to one of her baby-bump pics by telling her to “put it away”.

He’s here. He’s incredible. And we are besotted.

The actress hit back: “No thanks… I’m quite happy keeping it out thanks.”

Hayley – who played Del Dingle in Emmerdale and, later, Andrea Beckett in Corrie – got engaged to Adrian in May this year.

In April, the star had revealed she and Adrian were expecting their first child together.

At the time, she said on Twitter: “Exciting news tweet! I’m so pleased to tell you all… I’m expecting my first child with my wonderful boyfriend Adrian!!”

Hayley said she was told she couldn’t have children so is thrilled to be expecting.

She added: “I’ve always wanted to be a mum and didn’t think I could have children. And now, at the ripe old age of 42 – I’M PREGNANT. We couldn’t be happier.”
