Sam Aston and wife Briony were ‘trying not to get pregnant’ when they conceived baby no. 2

Coronation Street star Sam Aston and his wife Briony have told how they were “trying not to get pregnant” when they discovered they are expecting baby number two.

Speaking exclusively to OK! as the family posed for a festive photo shoot and revealed they’re having a baby girl, yoga teacher Briony told us: “We were actually trying not to get pregnant!

"Just because Sonny was so premature – my concern was having two too close together and having another premature baby.

“But it just happened! Like with Sonny, I just knew I was pregnant – something was a little bit off and I didn’t feel well. I took a test and obviously it was positive. It was a bit of a shock for Sam!”

Sam, 28, and 26 year old Briony’s son Sonny was premature and arrived six weeks early last August.

Sharing their “shock” at finding out they are going to have two kids under two, Briony detailed how she told her husband of two years the news.

“Sam hadn’t been well and he was in bed, so I asked how he was feeling and if I could get him anything. He asked for some water,” Briony told us.

“Last time, when I told him I was pregnant with Sonny, I made him eggs and put them on a board that read, ‘Daddy, you’re a good egg,’ so I put the water on that same board and I put Sonny on my hip holding the pregnancy test.

“I went into the room and I said, ‘I’m pleased you’re feeling a bit better because…’ and I just passed him the pregnancy test! I think his exact words were, “Are you having a laugh?”

He said, ‘We need to burn that wooden board because every time I see it there’s a pregnancy test!’”

Actor Sam, who has played Chesney Brown on the cobbles since 2003, continued: “It was said in a joking way! It’s fantastic news.

“It sounds like I wasn’t pleased but I really was. It’s just that with Sonny it was as planned as it could be, whereas this happened out of the blue.”

Briony added: “Yes, but we wanted more anyway. I think the universe has its ways and it’s happened for a reason. We don’t have the worry of trying, which is nice.”

The couple announced they were expecting their second child back in October with a sweet Instagram post featuring Sonny surrounded by pumpkins.

In the picture, the couple held a board reading: “We’re adding another pumpkin to our patch! Due Spring 2022.”
