She announced that she was expecting her first baby after a whirlwind romance last summer, and now Catherine Tyldesley and fiance Tom Pitfied have welcomed their newborn son into the world.
Revealing the VERY cute name of her little one, the 31-year-old Coronation Street star took to Twitter to announce the happy news.
Just a few days after admitting that she was getting a *little* tired of this whole pregnancy malarkey, the actress revealed that she is now a proud mum.
She wrote: “We made a wish and you came true. Welcome Alfie James Pitfield. We love you beyond words @TP_PTFitness #Besotted. (sic)”
Personal trainer Tom added: “Welcome to the world Son. Alfie James Pitfield. @Cath_Tyldesley you made the happiest man in the world. Thank you x (sic).”
Yeah, this just keeps getting cuter and cuter.
The soap star revealed that she was pregnant just nine months into her romance with Tom, who then popped the question just one week later during a holiday in Venice.
She told Hello: “If you’d told me that before my next birthday I was going to meet someone as amazing as Tom, the person I want to spend the rest of my life with.
“And that we were going to be planning for our first baby, I would not have believed you in a million years… it’s crazy.”
Despite her pretty perfect set-up, Catherine was counting down the minutes and seconds until she actually gave birth.
She said: “When you’re halfway through you feel like nine months is such a long time, but now it’s really close I’m actually excited about going into labour. I’m so impatient and that’s when I’ll know he’s on his way.“
Next stop… Wedding!
