Six months after giving birth to her first child, this popular soap star and her partner have marked a very special day in their son's life.

Writing in her latest blog for HELLO! magazine, Catherine Tyldesley opened up about a significant family event and revealed her baby son, Alfie James, was baptised last week.

The 32-year-old actress reflected on the incredibly special day and was more than happy to share details of the wonderful occasion.

"Our gorgeous son Alfie James was baptised this week. Joined by close friends and family – we celebrated Alfie’s special day in style!", wrote the overjoyed new mum.

Sharing stunning black and white photos of her son's special day, Catherine revealed Alfie James was "treated to a 'Merabi' christening suit" and wholly enjoyed the day.

Giving an insight into the proceedings, the Coronation Street star explained they opted for a traditional celebration and enjoyed afternoon tea after the ceremony.

The occasion was witnessed by the popular actress's co-stars, with Catherine revealing: "Paula Lane’s son Arthur and Jennie Mcalpine’s son Albert joined him on his special day."

It looks like the day went off without a hitch, with Catherine gushing: "Complete cuteness overload!"

Aw, we couldn't agree more!
