Coro Street star Jenny McAlpine announces she's pregnant with her second child

Fans are elated for the popular actress, who plays Fiz on Britain's favourite TV soap.

Coronation Street actress Jennie McAlpine has some exciting news!

The 34-year-old, who plays Fiz Brown on the popular soap, is expecting baby number two!

The popular Coro St star took to Twitter to share the news, saying in a heartfelt post, '"We've got a bit of news. Our baby boy is going to be a big brother later this year. We can't wait to meet you precious one."

Jennie's fans were quick to respond, with many posting messages of congratulations. Jennie told them she's already experiencing 'baby brain' - which is actually a thing, in case you were wondering.

In a second post she thanked her followers for their "lovely messages" and corrected her first post, which should have said "our baby boy" not "pur baby boy".

Jennie has a three-year-old son, Nathan, with her partner Chris Farr.

This will of course mean that Fiz will temporarily leave Weatherfield, while the actress goes on maternity leave.

Jennie gushed about her first pregnancy with Nathan and has said she has no plans to halt her busy lifestyle.

She said in an interview, "I feel good, I feel glowing.

"I'm waiting for the opposite to happen. But because I'm still working I haven't had time to worry about that just yet."

Congrats!
