'Corrie' couple overjoyed at birth of baby Matilda

Thursday April 15, 2010

Former Coronation Street stars Jenny Platt and Rupert Hill are celebrating the birth of their baby daughter.

The couple, who played lovers Violet Wilson and Jamie Baldwin in the soap, welcomed Matilda - weighing 7lb 10oz - on Sunday.

"Rupert and Jenny are absolutely thrilled. They couldn't be happier with their bouncing baby girl," a friend tells The Sun.

"The baby was two weeks overdue and they were so pleased to finally meet her.

"Rupert is over the moon and both mother and baby are doing well."

The couple's Corrie characters Violet and Jamie had a baby together in the soap, too, when she gave birth on New Years' Day 2007 as part of an ectopic pregnancy storyline.
