Soap fans will remember Sonia in her role as Mel Maguire, who kidnapped Bethany Platt after she had been groomed by evil Nathan Curtis in an attempt to stop Bethany from testifying against him.

But in real life it's happy news for Sonia, 30, who wrote on Instagram: "First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a BABY in a baby carriage.

"I am absolutely over the moon. I feel unbelievably blessed to announce that myself and my amazing husband are expecting a beautiful little baby GIRL."

She added: "I can promise one thing, above anything else, that I am going to Love, Adore and Cherish my Little Princess more that anything in this world.

"I can't wait to meet you in January my perfect little Princess."

As well as posting several snaps of her posing with Aaron both wearing pink clothes, she also added several hashtags: "#15weekspregnant #mamatobe #daddysgirl #cloudnine."


The couple looked thrilled to be sharing the news of an addition to their family and had made the moment as special as possible.

Both wearing matching pink outfits, they had also got a balloon filled with pink feathers and the words "It's a girl January 2021" written across it.

When Sonia bowed out as Mel from Coronation Street three years ago she said of her time on the soap: "It's been an amazing time, it's been great to work here."
