Coronation Street actor Sam Aston has admitted he is often left “feeling like a spare part” with his newborn daughter as his wife Briony is cluster feeding.
The couple, who are also parents to son Sonny, 22 months, welcomed baby Daisy into the world last month.
And speaking exclusively to OK!, Sam, who has played Chesney Brown on the cobbles since 2003, says that most of the time his daughter just wants her mum because she can settle her with feeding.
He said: “She wants to be on Briony a lot so sometimes I feel like a bit of a spare part.
“A lot of the time when I’m holding her she just wants Briony and she can settle her straight away.
“She’s definitely a mummy’s girl and sometimes I’m a bit like, ‘Oh!’ But when I do get 10 minutes to cuddle her I really cherish it.”
Sam continues that he’s looking forward to when his daughter is a bit older and they can interact more.
He explained: “I think it’s something a lot of dad’s feel if you’re not bottle feeding. But it has also meant I’ve spent a lot of time playing with Sonny and bonding with him.
"I don’t want to wish time away but when she’s a bit older I’ll be able to do more with her as she won’t be as dependent on Briony. There’s only so much I can do right now.”
The NHS describes cluster feeding as “when your baby wants to feed even more frequently (sometimes constantly) over a period of time.”
Sam, 29, and Briony’s daughter was born on 10 May at their home in Lancashire after a rather quick water birth.
It was in complete contrast to son Sonny’s arrival after the tot decided to make his appearance six weeks earlier in August 2021.
Sonny and Briony, 27, then had to stay in hospital for nine days after the little one developed jaundice and had to be fed through a tube.
Of Daisy’s birth, yoga teacher Briony told us: "It was euphoric. It was exactly what I wanted. I would do that every day of my life if I could!”
The mum-of-two, who is the co-owner of The Happy Baby Studio, continued: “Usually, a few days after giving birth your hormones level out and you start feeling the baby blues, but this time I still feel like I’m on a high.”
