Samia Ghadie has told how she underwent an operation to enlarge her breasts because she wanted to feel ‘womanly’.
“I have had a boob job, but it wasn’t something that was done on a whim,” she said.
The mother-of-one, who plays Maria Connor in Coronation Street, told the mag: “I had been thinking about having one done for three years. After Freya was born, my boobs just disappeared. Anybody who knows me will know that it’s something I talked about having done.
“I wanted to feel womanly again.”
She added: “Just the thought of putting a bikini on when I was on holiday was making me feel a little depressed before, so I made up my mind to do it.”
The star, who said she and Sylvian were ‘pretty much living together now’, was recently seen with a curvier look when she attended the wedding of Corrie’s Helen Worth.
