Paula Lane revealed on Twitter that she and husband Tom Shaw welcomed their first child on New Year’s Eve.

The first-time mum wrote: “Our world is complete - we finished off a momentous year with the arrival of our beautiful baby boy on NYE!!!!”

The happy news came after Tom had hinted he needed to take his New Year’s Eve goodies to go, cryptically writing:

“Ahhhh yes; the very last time I'll be up in the wee small hours of 2014 - better gimme a bottle of anything and a glazed doughnut TO GO!!”

The proud dad later added: “Oh boy! It's been quite a 24 hours - many thanks for all the good wishes, they're much appreciated. Now to sleep, if the wee man lets us…”

Paula was immediately showered with congratulations messages from her Corrie crew.

The soap's main site posted: "Many congratulations to Coronation Street's Paula Lane, who plays Kylie Platt. Paula gave birth last night to a baby boy, on New Year's Eve."

And pregnant co-star Catherine Tyldesley, who is also expecting her first child, tweeted: "Massive congrats guys!!! Lots of love!! I'm cooking him a little pal as we speak ;-) xxx"

Fellow Corrie actress Debbie Rush, who plays Anna Windass, wrote: "Massive congratulations to lane-paula and SirTomShaw on the birth of your baby boy. What a way to start the year! Sending much love xxxxx"

We can’t think of a better way to start 2015 - congratulations to Paula Lane and Tom Shaw!
