Shayne Ward has announced the arrival of his second child with fiance Sophie Austin.

The Coronation Street star revealed the news with a touching Instagram post where he shared a photo showing all of their hands piled together.

He posted: "And then there were Four!

"11/06/22 we had a HUGE surprise! Not a baby girl we were expecting but a beautiful baby boy. We are so overjoyed and blessed that sir baby Ward has arrived."

The newborn is the second addition to their family for Shayne and Sophie following the birth of their daughter Willow in 2016.

The couple – who have been engaged since 2017 – got quite a surprise with the birth as they were expecting to welcome a baby daughter after doctors told them they were having a girl.

Speaking to OK! in February former X-Factor star Shayne admitted that he sang to his unborn child every night, while Sophie admitted that Willow was looking forward to becoming a big sister.

Sophie said: "We’re really excited. Willow is trying to get used to it, isn’t she?"

Shayne continued: "It’s just amazing. She runs in every morning and says, ‘Morning mummy and daddy, I’m just going to say hello to my little sister'.

"And it’s nice to hear her saying ‘my little sister’ as she’s now automatically a big sister."

Sophie's pregnancy was a welcome return to good health for the Hollyoaks actress after she faced a battle with sepsis in 2019 that landed her in hospital for a week.

At the time she told fans: "Writing this after a really crazy month, after having a routine operation and being on the mend so quickly, I took a little side road and ended up back in hospital with sepsis, after a long scary week and a lot of weight lost im home and I’m all good and ready for some good food.

"I just want to say a huge thank you to our @nhsmillion and Macclesfield hospital for everything they do! I honestly can’t express how lucky we are to have the most amazing health care and they are there when we need them !"
