Alan, who plays Tyrone Dobbs in the ITV soap, recently welcomed his first child with wife and former Corrie star Lucy-Jo Hudson and told OK about his first visit to set with baby Sienna-Rae and her mum.
He said: “We said we’d go in for half an hour and we were still there three-and-a-half hours later. Production stopped!
“Everyone loved her. Andy (Whyment, Kirk Sutherland), Samia (Ghadie, Maria Connor) and Jane (Danson, Leanne Tilsley) all met Sienna, and without a doubt, Michelle (Keegan, Tina McIntyre) is the broodiest.
“She became an auntie the same week, so I showed her all our photos and went into great detail.”
Alan also said his castmates who were parents had offered him plenty of advice.
He said: “A lot of the lads at work – Chris (Gascoyne, Peter Barlow) and Simon (Gregson, Steve McDonald) – said it would change my life, but I didn’t get it until it happened. I told them that I absolutely get it now!”
