Congratulations are in order for Paula Lane and her husband Tom Shaw as they announced the safe arrival of a baby girl on Thursday evening (28 July).

The pair are already proud parents to 19-month-old son Arthur.

Paula told her followers: "She's here! The latest addition to the Shaw clan is doing great.

"@SirTomShaw and I are feeling blessed and very lucky."


The happy couple, who tied the knot two years ago, have yet to confirm a name for their little one. Perhaps they are still thinking, it is a pretty big decision after all...

Paula’s Corrie family were quick to send messages of congratulations to their co-star…

The arrival of her new baby girl is the first step in Paula’s new chapter, as her character, Kylie Platt, was dramatically killed off earlier this month.

Viewers watched the heartbreaking moment Kylie in the arms of her husband David Platt (played by Jack P Shepherd) after being attacked by a friend of her ex Callum Logan, just as the family planned to flee the cobbles for a new life.

After her final scenes aired, Paula took to Twitter to share a photograph of herself with her onscreen husband Jack, writing: "I loved every second of my time on the street – always my family and always my heart. On to the next chapter."

Congratulations to the happy couple!
