The happy news comes two years after the couple suffered a tragic loss when their son Archie died just moments after being born 18 weeks premature.
The Coronation Street star, who has two older kids from a previous relationship, has been very open about the terrible experience, saying, “You do go home and your body is still doing all the things it would normally do (after giving birth) but you have no baby. So it’s very, very hard to try and channel all those feelings somewhere else. It’s very difficult… there kind of wasn’t an awful lot of support afterwards, so you just leave with leaflets.”
A friend of the actress says that she and Jamie are thrilled to be expecting again.
“Kym’s over the moon and everyone at the show is delighted. She and Jamie were devastated when they lost Archie. They are an incredibly loving couple and will make fantastic parents together.”
