Simon Pegg becomes a dad

And Coronation Street’s Simon Gregson may meet his baby prematurely

Actor Simon Pegg, of Hot Fuzz, Run Fatboy Run and Star Trek fame, and his wife Maureen McCann have become parents for the first time. Maureen gave birth to a baby girl on the weekend.


Before the birth, Simon Pegg, 39, said he was keen for a daughter, so he must be chuffed at the outcome! That said, Simon did comment at the time, “I’m hoping for a baby girl, but I really don’t mind what we have.” Just as well, Simon, because there are no exchanges or refunds when it comes to having a baby!

And the arrival of a baby for Coronation Street’s Simon Gregson and fiancée Emma Gleave could be earlier than the couple anticipated. Simon, aka Rovers landlord Steve McDonald, rushed to be by Emma’s side in hospital last night as she went into labour six to eight weeks early, reports The Sun.


Simon Gregson and Emma are already parents to son Alfie, almost 2.
