A huge congratulations are in order to former Coronation Street star Lucy-Jo Hudson and her boyfriend, Lewis Devine, who are due to welcome a baby boy in February.
The sweet pair, who revealed their impending arrival in August, exclusively announced the exciting gender news in OK! magazine.

“My bump is lower with this little one and everything has been so different, with cravings and morning sickness."
“I would have been happy either way but I’m very excited for a boy,” Lewis, 32, added. “It’s a son to carry on the family name.”
The loved-up couple first met and developed a friendship on the panto set of Snow White And The Seven Dwarves in 2017.
They then went public with their romance just two months after Lucy announced the ending of her marriage with Alan, who’s been playing lovable Corrie character Tyrone for 21 years.
After a whirlwind romance, Lucy-Jo, who is seven months pregnant said, “It just felt right with Lewis at every stage.”
Sparks started to fly for Lucy and Alan, after they met while both acting on the cobbles in 2002 and fans were overjoyed to when they went on to marry seven years later, but they sadly split in 2018.
The 37-year-old leeds born actress, who left her year long role on Hollyoaks in April, opened up to OK! magazine about the challenging journey of co-parenting with Alan, who’s been dating his 25-year-old co-star Tisha Merry, since May.
“It can be difficult with everyone’s schedules but you make it work for the child involved,” she admitted. “But everyone gets on well which helps.”
“I’m happy Sienna has a good male and female role model on my side and with Alan and his girlfriend,” she continued. “Lew has been amazing and he would never try and take over Alan’s role as her dad.”
Clearly over the moon about falling pregnant after 18-months of being official with her new man, Lucy-Jo gushed: “Our pregnancy wasn’t planned but it was such a welcome surprise. Babies are miracles and we’re just so happy to be adding to our family.”
