Sam Aston has announced he’s welcomed a baby boy with wife Briony.
Taking to Instagram on Monday, the pair revealed they privately welcomed their first child two weeks ago, stating the birth was ‘calm’ despite him being born six weeks premature.
Alongside a sweet snap of the couple and their newborn, they revealed they had named their son Sonny.
Sam penned: ‘Welcome to the world little man. Our little ray of sunshine. Sonny James Aston’.
Briony wrote: ‘Sonny Aston. He calmly entered our world 6 weeks early on 11.08.20 at 5lbs 7oz and we couldn’t be more in love’.
The yoga instructor, 25, was preparing to welcome her baby in September and had been documenting her journey.
In a snap earlier this month she covered her modesty with a sheet as she lay on her bed, showing off a giant tattoo on her arm.

Briony and Sam announced they were expecting a boy when speaking with OK! magazine, saying: ‘We’re having a boy!
‘It was a massive surprise when we found out, as there are loads of girls in our families, so we were adamant we were having a girl.’
Briony added the couple had found out the day before lockdown, saying: ‘Sam couldn’t come with me because of the current rules, so I got the consultant to write the sex on a piece of paper and put it in an envelope and we both then sat in the car and opened it together. We were over the moon.’
The couple also revealed they had only been trying for a baby for little over a month before getting the positive result.
Sam, whose Coronation Street character Chesney is parenting quads on the popular ITV soap, said he and Briony would love a big family but admitted they were glad they were just expecting the one child.
Briony also discussed the sweet moment she had broken the news of her pregnancy to Sam, using a customised boiled egg board emblazoned with ‘Daddy, you’re a good egg’.
Sam said he was so invested in his football game that at first he didn’t notice the message, but when he did he was over the moon.
Sam and Briony tied the knot last year, two years after the couple announced their engagement.
