Coronation Street's Brooke Vincent is expecting her first child
"If I’m half the mother my mum is then I’ll be happy."
Brooke Vincent has announced that she's pregnant with her first child.
The Coronation Street actor dropped the news that she and boyfriend Kean Bryan are expecting today via a cover shoot for OK! magazine.
The 26-year-old said that she hopes she and her unborn child will have a similar relationship to the one she had with her own mother.
"My mum had me when she as 24 and we have a really close relationship so I’m hoping that will happen for me. If I’m half the mother my mum is then I’ll be happy," she said.
"Kean brings out the best in me and it makes me so excited that we’re on this journey together. I like to think I’m the boss of our relationship but Kean has a really wise head on his shoulders, so I know he’ll be a brilliant dad.
"We’re both each other’s biggest fans and having a baby together will add an extra bond."
Brooke and Kean have been together since 2016.
A year after the actor met the 22-year-old footballer, the pair moved in together and although they have no plans as of yet to tie the knot, Brooke said that she would like to get married at some stage.
"Kean and I speak about it," she said. "But we are concentrating on the baby for the foreseeable."
"Sometimes I sit and cry about how much I love my baby! I’ve always wanted to be a mum, so I’m really excited."
Brooke has played Sophie Webster in the ITV soap since 2004.
