We have yet more wonderful baby news from the world of celebrity this evening, as it has been revealed that Coronation Street star Samia Ghadie is expecting a baby with her Dancing On Ice star boyfriend Sylvain Longchambon.


The star took to her social media channels this evening to share the amazing news, writing: “Me and @slongchambon have some very happy news to share...We are having a baby!! Freya can’t wait to be a big sister later this year!”


Samia is already a mum to five-year-old Freya, her daughter from her previous marriage to property developer Matthew Smith.



Samia and Sylvain first met after being partnered on ITV’s reality show Dancing On Ice, and have been together since 2013.


The star previously gushed over Sylvain’s relationship with her daughter, telling OK! magazine: “We’ve just always got each other. He makes me crack up, he’s brilliant. The way he is with Freya melts my heart.”





No doubt friend and new mum Catherine Tyldesley will have plenty of advice to share with the mum-to-be!


What wonderful news for the couple, we’re sending them big congratulations this evening.
