Actress Paula Lane has announced that she is expecting her first child.
The Coronation Street actress, who is best known for her role as Kylie Platt, revealed her exciting baby news with her husband Tom Shaw on Twitter.
"@SirTomShaw and I are thrilled to announce we have a Christmas pud in the oven! SURPRISE!" wrote Paula.
The 28-year-old star received a flurry of congratulatory tweets from her 123,000 followers, replying to one user that she was "very excited" about the little arrival. "Thank you for all your lovely messages," Paula later added.
The couple's joyous news comes just weeks after Paula and Tom tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in May. The lovebirds exchanged vows at Leeds Cathedral, where Paula was walked down the aisle by her mother Anne Werritt.
Paula and Tom met at Huddersfield Technical College, and began dating when the actress was 17.
