Coronation Street star Julia Goulding welcomes second child and reveals baby name

Coronation Street star Julia Goulding has welcomed her second child.

The actress, who plays Shona Platt in the ITV soap, revealed back in June at the British Soap Awards that she was pregnant when she was pictured cradling a baby bump on the red carpet.

Julia, who is already mum to son Franklin Wolf, has revealed that she and husband Ben Silver have welcomed a baby girl, who they’ve named Emmeline Beanie Silver.

‘On Saturday our little girl arrived,’ the soap star shared on Instagram, alongside a picture of her and Ben leaving the hospital with their newborn.

‘We’re absolutely elated and Franklin is besotted with his little sister, Emmeline Beanie Silver. She’s perfect.’

Julia’s cobbles co-stars were quick to share their messages of congratulations, with Max Turner actor Paddy Bever writing: ‘The most amazing news.’

Kym Marsh, who played Michelle Connor on the serial drama, said: ‘Huge congrats baby xxx,’ while Abi Webster star Sally Carman added: ‘the bet news EVER’.

Congratulations Shona and Ben!

Julia discussed her pregnancy back in June, revealing that at the time it was quite hard to keep it a secret.

‘It’s been quite hard to keep it secret and they’ve dug out my maternity clothes from three years ago, so it’s all systems go again,’ she told OK! Magazine.

‘It’s generally up to the director or costume department to sort of try and conceal it a bit. Obviously, I’m not as big, I’m used to being a lot bigger when I had Franklin.’
