Samia Ghadie Gives Birth To Baby Boy: 'Coronation Street' Actress Names Son After Late Father

Samia Ghadie has given birth to a baby boy via caesarean section.

The Coronation Street actress and her fiancé Sylvain Longchambon have named their son Yves Joseph Longchambon.

Yves, who was born weighing 8lb 9oz, is Longchambon's first child, but Ghadie also has a five-year-old daughter Freya, from her previous marriage.

Ghadie tweeted to share her joy.

The proud dad then also took to Twitter to share the news.

The couple, who first met on Dancing On Ice, told OK! magazine that they chose their son's first name as a tribute to Longchambon's brother and his middle name came from Ghadie's late father.

They have had the names picked out ever since learning they were going to have a boy during a scan.

At the time Ghadie said: "At the scan they told us the baby had its legs crossed, so we thought we wouldn't be able to find out.

"We were a little disappointed. Halfway through they told me to go and have some chocolate or a fizzy drink to try and get the baby to move.

"At the end of the scan they got me to move around and the baby moved again. It was quite obvious we were expecting a boy."

Congratulations Samia, Sylvain and Freya!
