Coronation Street’s Joseph Aston welcomes baby girl and announces her gorgeous name

Former Coronation Street star Joseph Aston has welcomed his second child with his partner Roxanne.

Longtime viewers of the popular ITV soap may remember the star from his portrayal of Jack and Vera's grandson Tommy Duckworth back in 2000.

More than 20 years on from his role on the show, Joseph's partner Roxanne lovingly took to Instagram to share a snap of him holding his newborn daughter.

"Tilly Wren Aston. Born 26th April 2022 at 14.59 pm weighing 7 pounds 13 oz. Welcome to the outside beautiful girl," she gushed in the cation, adding: "10 days old already #hellotilly #4thtrimester."

Roxanne also shared a snap of her smiling for the camera as the newborn sweetly slept on her chest.

Joseph skyrocketed to fame as a child actor as he took on the role of Tommy from Darryl Edwards.

The character was involved in a custody battle with his grandparents at the time, after his mother Lisa's tragic death.

While important to the plot, Joseph's stint on the soap was short, but he's also starred in ITV's Where the Heart is and BBC One's Casualty.

He eventually left acting behind in a bid to focus on his studies, and he's now a keen gardener, according to his Instagram profile.

The 30 year old started his "gardening journey" back in 2021 and documents his "successes and fails" on Instagram as he attempts to grow different vegetables in the British weather.

Meanwhile, Joseph's brother Sam Aston currently stars on Corrie, playing Chesney Brown since 2003

Away from the cobbles, the actor is married to yoga instructor Briony and the couple are parents to 21-month old son, Sonny.

The pair, who knot in Cheshire in 2019, recently welcomed their second child and made the announcement to OK!.

They told us: "Our beautiful girl has arrived."

Opening up about the moment they found out they were expecting again, Briony told us the news was a bit of a surprise.

She said: "We were actually trying not to get pregnant! [Laughs] Just because Sonny was so premature – my concern was having two too close together and having another premature baby. But it just happened!

"Like with Sonny, I just knew I was pregnant – something was a little bit off and I didn't feel well. I took a test, and obviously it was positive. It was a bit of a shock for Sam!"
