Samia, who plays Maria Connor on The Street, started having contractions while watching the show.
The 33-year-old went on to give birth to baby Yves Joseph, her first child with her ice-skater fiancé Sylvain Longchambon, who she met on ‘Dancing On Ice’.
Yves, who was born weighing 8lb 9oz, is Sylvain's first child, but Samia also has a five-year-old daughter Freya, from her previous marriage.
Speaking to OK magazine, she said: “The night before I was due to have the C-section it was the Corrie live episode.
“We sat down to watch it and I started to get contractions!
“I was literally sitting with my legs crossed watching the show. I was terrified to move – I thought if I did my waters would break and I would end up going into labour.”
Samia admitted she thought her fiancé wouldn't cope during the birth, but confessed he was “brilliant”.
She added: “It’s no less of a miracle that you can have a second baby than it was the first time."
Last week, it was reported ‘Corrie’ bosses are set to reveal a shock twist following Callum Logan’s death, as Sarah Platt is reportedly set to discover that she’s pregnant with his child.
The bad boy was murdered by Kylie Platt during #CorrieLive back in September, when Sarah’s sister-in-law dashed into their family home to save her from a violent Callum.
