Corrrie’s Samia Ghadie has given birth to a baby boy and she broke the good news on Twitter.
“@slongchambon and I are so happy and in love beyond words with our beautiful boy..,’ she told her 300k followers.
Her partner and proud new dad Sylvain was posting away, too: “I’m so happy and in love with our beautiful boy and so proud of my @realsamia (and in love with her too!)” Aw, bless.
Samia and Sylvain had previously hinted that they’d pretty much picked their son’s name as soon as they knew they were having a boy, and we think their choice – Yves Joseph – has a certain je ne sais quoi.
They couple have told OK! magazine that their babyname choice was very much a family tribute – to Sylvain’s brother Yves, and Samia’s late father Joseph.
Samia already has a 6-year-old daughter with property developer Matthew Smith, from whom she separated from in 2011. She then met Sylvain in 2013 when she appeared on Dancing on Ice.
The couple’s Twitter feeds have been inundated with fans’ and friends’ best wishes. Corrie colleague Catherine Tyldesley tweeted: “We’re so thrilled for you! Alfie can’t wait to meet his new little buddy xxx”
And Helen Flanagan tweeted: “Delighted to hear to birth of Yves darling. Absolutely love the name. Well done. So happy for you x”
