While Coronation Street’s Brooke Levi Vincent added: “Ahhhhhh Charley!!!! Congratulations.”

Webb recently opened up about her ‘agonising’ pregnancy after being diagnosed with symphysis pubis dysfunction.

She told OK! Magazine: “"I still get waves of sickness but I've also been diagnosed with symphysis pubis dysfunction. It's when your muscles have relaxed too much ready for the birth. It's agony.”

She added: "I'd be lying if I said I really enjoy the experience of getting bigger but I appreciate what my body is doing. I think pregnancy is amazing."

Woldenden also opened up his wife’s difficult pregnancy during a recent appearance on Loose Women.

"She's been ill from the get-go, and it's just not relented at all. She's been sick since we found out [she was pregnant], and she still is now," he told the panel.

"We don't know if it's a boy or a girl. Everyone goes, 'Oh, you would love a girl obviously because you've got two boys', but – it's the old cliché – as long as they're healthy."
