Coronation Street's Sam Aston and wife Briony expecting a baby boy!

The couple got married last year!

Coronation Street star Sam Aston and his wife Briony have revealed they're expecting a baby boy, just one year after getting married.

Sam has played Chesney Brown in the ITV soap since 2003. Whilst his alter ego is a father of five, this is Sam and Briony's first child, who is due to arrive in September.

Speaking to OK! Magazine about how they're feeling, Sam said: "We're super excited, I'm not sure it's properly sunk in for me yet."

Briony added: "It's all I think about! It's over the moon and we feel incredibly lucky."

Finding out the sex of the baby

When asked if they're having a boy or girl, the couple revealed they're having a baby boy. However, they were convinced at one point they were having a girl.

He revealed: "We're having a boy! It was a massive surprise when we found out, as there are loads of girls in our families, so we were adamant we were having a girl."

Briony said: "We found out the day before lockdown. Sam couldn't come with me because of the current rules, so I got the consultant to write down the sex on a piece of paper and put it in an envelope and we both then sat in the car and opened it together. We were over the moon."
