The sweet meaning behind Sam Aston’s baby girl’s name

The couple has now revealed to OK! Magazine they have named their little one Daisy.

Sam explained: “We’ve always like it.

“It was one of the only names we both agreed on.”

They also told of the sweet meaning behind the name.

Briony said: “She’s Daisy Josephine.

“Josephine is a nod to Sam’s brother Joe and my grandad Joe.

“Daisy is also the French name for Marguerite and my mum’s mum is called Margaret, so it was a way to have both grandparents in there.”

When Daisy first came along in May, nine days after her due date, Sam and Briony broke the news to OK!

“Our beautiful girl has arrived,” they announced.

They also shared the first snap of the tot with the publication in which she could be seen in a ‘Little Sister’ baby grow with a bunny motif.

Given Briony gave birth to Sonny prematurely in August 2020, it was a relief that their daughter waited a bit longer to arrive.

Sam Aston’s wife has a girl

In an interview with OK! magazine in December 2021, Sam and Briony, who married in 2019, 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 May.

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!”

Sam also revealed his very real fears about becoming a dad again as he was was nervous that he and Briony would be expecting twins!

“There are twins in Briony’s family, so when we went in I was a bit nervous and said, ‘There’s definitely only one in there, right?'”

The couple also said they believe it was destined that they had a little girl this time around because they only had girl’s names that they liked in mind.

However, Briony admitted that her second pregnancy came as a surprise, and so they feel “very lucky” to be expecting again.

She also said she doesn’t feel like they are done with having children.

Who does Sam play in Coronation Street?

Sam has played Chesney Brown since 2003. He was just nine years old when he joined the cobbles.

He didn’t have the best start in life with Cilla as his mum, but he has blossomed into a fine young man.

Ches is dad to five kids – son, Joseph with the late Katy Armstrong – and quads with Gemma Winter.

But will Sam end up with as many kids as Ches?
