Former Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley is currently expecting baby number two – a little girl.
Catching us up on how her pregnancy is going a second time around, the stunning star, 38, who recently flaunted her blossoming bump, said seeing her son Alfie hold his little sister for the first time is what she's "most excited for."
The star also shared the moment that Alfie was going to have a little sister, and his humorous response.
"Alfie is so excited about becoming a brother. When we discovered it was a girl Alfie did ask the doctor if he could change it to a boy.
"I'm sure he'll get over it bless him. He's really excited though, he can't wait," Catherine told OK!
The fitness fanatic also shared that she and her husband Tom Pitfield do have some name ideas in mind, but they're yet to pick one out.
Catherine explained: "We've got a handful of names but I said to Tom we just need to see her before making any decisions.
"I could choose a name but then she might not look anything like that name so I think we're definitely going to wait until she's here."
The actress announced the news that she is expecting a baby girl in October, and she's due next year.
The brunette beauty penned: "I can’t tell you how utterly blessed we feel right now. We are so happy to announce that @tompitfieldphotography, Alfie and I are expecting a baby.
"It’s been tough keeping this a secret let me tell you!!"

Catherine also discussed her health and fitness with OK! and spoke about a company she champions – Symprove.
The star began her Symprove journey eight years ago and explained to us why.
"Many years ago I was really struggling with irritable bowel syndrome and I'd also just done a course of antibiotics.
"I heard about Symprove and I haven't looked back. At the time I was on quite a lot of medication for IBS and I'd been admitted to hospital because the pain was so bad sometimes.
"Symprove became a huge part of my life. I was able to come off all my medication which is huge. It became such a big deal to me. Ever since then I've become a bit of a Symprove nerd and have told everybody."
Founded in 2002, Symprove helps you maintain a healthy gut balance, and Catherine explained that it had helped tremendously in improving her digestive issues.
The star added: "Symprove did a survey with around 2,000 people and so many of them had hidden pains or problems with digestion and they were embarrassed and didn't want to talk about their problems. It's still a bit of a taboo subject but we all digest food and IBS can be quite life altering.
"I was put on morphine a couple of times and the nearest thing I can compare it to is labour pains.
"When the opportunity came up to work with Symprove it was a no brainer for me."
Catherine Tyldesley is an advocate for unique, water-based food supplement, Symprove, which is based on an extract of germinated barley together with four carefully selected strains of live and active bacteria.
