Coronation Street star Sonia Ibrahim has announced that she’s pregnant, saying she’s ‘over the moon’ to become a mum. 

The actress, who played Mel Maguire on the soap, is expecting her first child with husband Arron Machin and shared the joyful news on Instagram. In the cute photos, Sonia and Arron are both wearing pink and striking a series of elated poses. 

The caption read: "First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a BABY in a baby carriage. I am absolutely over the moon. I feel unbelievably blessed to announce that myself and my amazing husband are expecting a beautiful little baby GIRL. Nothing in this world can top the feeling and excitement of knowing that I am going to be a mama and I can promise one thing, above anything else, that I am going to Love, Adore and Cherish my little Princess more than anything in this world."


Revealing her due date, Sonia added: "I can’t wait to meet you in January my perfect little Princess."

Just days before announcing her pregnancy, Sonia shared a throwback to her wedding with Arron and swooned: ‘Still making me smile every single day.’ The couple married in October 2019, two years after Arron’s romantic proposal at Manchester Town Hall.
