Coronation Street Actress Katherine Kelly Pregnant With First Baby

Ryan Clark and Katherine Kelly arriving for the 2012 British Soap Awards at ITV London Studios, South Bank, London.

Corrie actress Katherine Kelly has announced she is expecting her first baby - a month after getting married in Vegas.

Katherine and husband Ryan Clark are expecting their first baby together early next year. They got hitched in Las Vegas last month after dating for three years.

The actress announced the news on Twitter with the message:

"Ryan & I are overjoyed to announce that we are expecting a baby! Feeling very blessed!"

Speaking about their recent wedding, Katherine told Hello! magazine:

"The day was everything we hoped it would be - no fuss, low-key, sunshine and just us.

"We wanted to enjoy the day without all the usual planning and pressure. We just wanted to let it roll, so it had an on-the-run feel to it.

"We'd been laughing and joking all day and then suddenly everything seemed to stop and we tried to get the words 'I do' out without becoming emotional wrecks. It was awesome. I'll never forget that moment for the rest of my life."

Katherine left Corrie last year after six years in the soap. She then went on to star in Mr Selfridge.

Congratulations Katherine and Ryan!
