Julia Goulding has met former Coronation Street star Hayley Tamaddon's "most gorgeous" baby boy.

The actress - who plays Shona Ramsey on the ITV soap - has popped round to see her close friend just two weeks after she welcomed Jasper into the world, and she said her friend is a "wonderful mummy".

Taking to social media, she tweeted: "Today I met the most gorgeous little man, Jasper! We high fived and everything!

The soap star announced in April she was expecting a baby, and Adrian popped the question just three weeks later.

Last month, the star - who also played Del Dingle in Emmerdale - hit back at trolls, insisting "no one has the right to tell women what to do with our bodies", after a Twitter user hit out at her for posting naked baby bump pictures.

Hayley wrote: "Almost 24 weeks and Feeling the stretch now! I'm smothered in @mamamio every little kick and punch is getting stronger. Feels incredibly and weirdly wonderful! (sic)

But the Twitter user replied: "Ok, you're pregnant. Now, put it away. (sic)"

Hayley hit back: "Ooh Linda... sure you wanna keep going on here love? (sic)"

She later thanked her fans for their support, and insisted she will continue to show off her bump if she wants to.

She tweeted: "You lot are a wonderful bunch! Besides Linda of course.. and 2 other trolls who I've blocked! Thanks for all your lovely positive tweets!

"No one has the right to tell us women what to do with our bodies. And if I wanna show off my bump.. I'm gonna. sleep tight everyone. (sic)"

Meanwhile, Julia is also expecting her first child with husband Ben Silver.

She is due to give birth before the end of the year, which will mean her soap alter ego will be written out for a while.

With Shona facing an uncertain future as her fiancé David Platt has been charged with attempted murder, will this pave the way for the exit?
