Popular Coronation Street star announces amazing news

Coronation Street star Lucy-Jo Hudson has confirmed she’s pregnant a year after her split from husband Alan Halsall.

The actress, 36, is expecting a baby with her new boyfriend Lewis Devine.

She revealed the news this evening by posting a picture of her scan.

Lucy-Jo wrote: “This has been so hard to keep quiet but today was the day @lewisdevine and I got to tell Sienna the best news!!!

“We are 13 weeks pregnant and so very excited to extend our little family…. Sienna is so excited to be a big sister…. and Lew is ecstatic to become a daddy for the first time and I am so happy to be having another gorgeous baby! No other feeling like it xxx.”

The ex-Corrie star, who played Katy Harris in the soap, is already mum to a daughter named Sienna, five, with her ex Alan.

She met Alan, 37, who plays Tyrone Dobbs, on the set of the soap in 2002 and they went on to strike up a romance in 2014.

They married in 2009 and their daughter was born in 2013.

The soap stars parted ways in 2016, but got back together just months later before splitting once again in 2018.

Lucy-Jo went on to date Lewis after meeting him in panto, while Alan is now in a relationship with another Corrie star, Tisha Merry.

Alan recently whisked Sienna off on holiday with Tisha and Lucy-Jo admitted it was tough being parted from her little girl.

In a post on social media, she wrote: “My last day with Sienna  before she goes on holiday with her daddy.

“What a gorgeous day we’ve had @lewisdevine so thankful to have these two in my life … gonna miss you so much baby girl…. it never gets any easier.

“But I know you’ll have an amazing time! I’m already counting down the hours.”
