Former Coronation Street star Katherine Kelly has become a mother for the first time.
The 33-year-old - now known to TV audiences for her role in Mr Selfridge - and her husband Ryan Clark became parents to baby girl Orla on March 11.
Katherine bowed out of Corrie in January 2012 following a six-year stint in the soap playing Becky McDonald.
She said she was "overwhelmed with joy to announce the arrival of our daughter".
Ryan - who married Katherine in a low-key ceremony at the Little Church Of The West in Las Vegas - said: "Katherine has given me the best gift in the world. Absolutely smitten with Orla and so proud of my wife."
