Coronation Street couple Tina O’Brien and Ryan Thomas were spotted during a day out for the first time with their seven month old baby Scarlett during a soap opera charity football event.
Mother Tina was dressed in jeans and a military style jacket as she unfolded the baby buggy which was complete with a number plate bearing her daughter’s name.
Scarlett looked very snug as Tina tenderly cuddled up to her during the event - the teams were made up of stars from Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Casualty, Shameless and The Bill. Her Dad Ryan, 24, carried her for a short while before returning to the pitch and his team-mates.
Tina and Ryan met on the set of Coronation Street. She left the soap in December 2007 but Ryan continues to play dim builder Jason Grimshaw. The couple looked very happy as they doted on their baby girl.
Tina was the first of a wave of Corrie stars to become parents in the last 18 months.
Her co-stars Julia Haworth (Claire Peacock), Alison King (Carla Gordon), Wanda Opalinska (Vicki Dankowska) and Jane Danson (Leanne Battersby) have all given birth, while Andrew Whyment (Kirk Sutherland), and Jack P Shepherd (David Platt) have become fathers.
Meanwhile, the partners of Graeme Hawley (John Stape) and Simon Gregson (Steve McDonald) are both pregnant, as is Samia Smith (Maria Connor).
There must be something in the water!
