Nip­per due for Shayne and So­phie

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

CORO­NA­TION Street star Shayne Ward and ex- Hol­lyoaks ac­tress So­phie Austin are ex­pect­ing their first child.

The ac­tor and for­mer X Fac­tor win­ner, 31, and 32-year-old So­phie ( above) – Lind­sey But­ter­field in Hol­lyoaks – have been dat­ing since only March.

Shayne con­firmed the news on Twit­ter, writ­ing: “After much spec­u­la­tion I’m over­joyed to an­nounce that @so­phieaustin1 and I are ex­pect­ing our first child. #blessed.”

The for­mer singer, who won The X Fac­tor in 2005, made his de­but in Cor­rie as Ai­dan Con­nor, boss of the knicker fac­tory Un­der­world, in Au­gust last year.

He signed a year’s con­tract with the ITV soap, which he de­scribed as a “dream come true” and went on to win the best new­comer prize at the Na­tional Tele­vi­sion Awards in Jan­uary.

So­phie, who left Hol­lyoaks ear­lier this year, wed long-term fi­ancé Graeme Rooney in July 2015 but the mar­riage ended. GOR­GEOUS Gigi Ha­did sent fans into over­drive this week as she pa­raded around with her peachy arse on show.

The 21-year-old showed off her cheeky side as she treated cam­eras to shots off her pert pos­te­rior dur­ing a racy fash­ion shoot.

Never one to shy from at­ten­tion, the stun­ning blonde ap­peared to revel in the lime­light as all eyes were fix­ated on her killer curves.
