James Burrows became a dad in April when his girlfriend gave birth to their little girl.

The Coronation Street actor, who is in a relationship with girlfriend Sophie Coates, has now unveiled his daughter and her stunning name.

The pair opened up about Sophie's tough 46-hour labour as she was induced due to suffering from pre-eclampsia. 

Betty also suffered from an infection after she was born and Sophie had to stay with her in hospital for ten days.

James said, ''It was quite a stressful time. I just wanted to get them both home.”

Sophie said, ''Towards the end of my pregnancy I got pre-eclampsia so I was induced in the end. I was in and out of the hospital from 30 weeks anyway, as they were checking me for high blood pressure, and then the final time I went in they told me it had developed into pre-eclampsia.''

She continued, ''I was told to come back the following day at 6pm. Pre-eclampsia affects the function of the placenta so if that stops working properly it affects the baby’s growth, so it was safe to induce me.''

She added, ''I was induced with a hormone drip. It was 46 hours in total. It was very intense.''

Now the family can enjoy their time with their little one in the comfort of their own home. 

James, said, ''It was the best moment of my life when she arrived.”

Huge congratulations to the new family.
