Coronation Street star Simon Gregson and his partner Emma Gleave have revealed they’ve had a baby – after eight days of labour!
Their second son, Harry, was born in July after more than a week of Emma going in and out of labour wards.
She told Ok! magazine: “I just kept thinking, I’m going in here and I’ll come out out with this baby, but the birth had to be stopped a few times because Harry was premature and the doctors thought he needed more time in my body.”
The couple also announced that they will adopt a child in the future.
Simon, who has played Steve McDonald since 1989, said: “I do charity work every Christmas for a local orphanage, and the kids are wonderful. It breaks your heart, though, because they all ask to come home with you. One day we’ll do that.”
