Huge congratulations are in order for soap star Jennie McAlpine who has welcomed a baby girl.
The mum took to Twitter to announce her major family news. The Coronation Street star revealed her daughter was born on October 29.
She said: “Our newest addition arrived yesterday. Mummy and Daddy very happy.”
Jennie chose quite the traditional name for her baby girl. They decided to call her Hilda, which is quite timely considering she was born just days before Halloween.
The meaning behind her daughter’s name is so powerful. Hilda is of Swedish origin and it means fighter.
Jennie is also a mum to three-year-old son Albert. There’s no doubt he’ll take great care of his baby sister. “Big brother very proud of his little sister Hilda.”
Our newest addition arrived yesterday. Mummy and Daddy very happy. Big brother very proud of his little sister Hilda. We’re all in love— Jennie McAlpine (@jenniemcalpine) October 30, 2018
She added: “We’re all in love.”
We are simply overjoyed for Jennie and her husband Chris Farr. We’re sure the parents are over the moon by the newest addition to their family.
Jennie confirmed her pregnancy back in April.
She wrote on Twitter: “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 x"
The actress will be taking some time away from the cobbles as she is on maternity leave from Coronation Street, but fear not soap fans, Fiz will be on screens until December.
Huge congratulations to Jennie. We’re sure Hilda is a little cutie pie.
