Coronation Street’s Lucy Fallon has welcomed a baby boy, announcing the news with an adorable photo.

The star, who played Bethany Platt in the soap between 2015 and 2020, shared the happy news on Instagram last night.

Lucy, 27, announced that their son had arrived on 30 January, captioning her photo “Our beautiful boy.”

She has been with her professional footballer boyfriend Ryan Ledson since 2020.

Her post on Instagram, which has been flooded with well-wishes, shows the pair with their tiny newborn.


The couple had been expecting in 2022 but tragically suffered a miscarriage last March, which Lucy spoke candidly about.

The Corrie star told OK! Magazine in September: “It was a traumatising, horrendous time. We went for a scan and they couldn’t see anything, so then we went to the hospital and they thought they could see something, so it was very up and down.


“I had pregnancy symptoms and I was feeling really unwell and when they were doing all these scans my symptoms were getting worse and worse and there were no signs I had had a miscarriage, so that made it more of a shock.

“We just assumed everything was going to be fine. Then after a week when they’d done the blood tests and other tests I went back and they said that I had miscarried. It was a really strange feeling.”

Following the announcement of the arrival of Lucy and Ryan’s baby boy, several fellow Corrie stars have rushed to offer their congratulations.


Samia Longchambon, who has played Maria since 2000, posted: “Congratulations both of you.. gorgeous news Lucy!”
