Sam and Briony got married last year

Coronation Street star Sam Aston's wife, Briony, has revealed the sweet way she told him he was going to be a dad.

Sam, who plays Chesney Brown in Corrie, and Briony recently announced they are expecting a baby boy.

And now, Briony shared how she told her husband they were going to be parents.

The reveal

In an Instagram post, she shared a picture of egg and toast on a board which says: "Daddy you are a good egg. All my love bumble bee xx."

Above the breakfast dish was a Clearblue pregnancy test.

Briony captioned the post: "Sat waiting for my next midwife appointment and reminiscing over when our incredible journey started (the morning I woke up at 3am and had to wait till breakfast to tell Sam."

Her followers commented on her post, sending their well wishes.

One wrote: "What a lovely photo this story tells."

A second commented: "Congratulations."

A third added: "Oh wow, congrats to you both."

The couple also spoke about the reveal to OK Magazine.

Briony said: "We hadn't been trying for long but I bought a board you serve eggs on which had 'daddy you're a good egg' etched into it. I wanted a nice way to tell Sam when I did fall pregnant and I always make him dippy eggs.

"Luckily for us, as soon as I could do my first pregnancy test, it was positive."

Sam added: "I came down for breakfast and the fire was on, the highlights of Match of the Day were on TV; it felt like it was my birthday!

"Briony put the board down and I started eating and I didn't even notice the message, as I was too busy watching Burnley play.

"After a few minutes I saw it and was so excited. I kept saying 'really?' It was very surreal."

Telling her parents

As well as revealing the news to Sam, Briony has also shared how she told her parents.
