Dads-to-be Sam Aston and Shayne Ward looked delighted to meet as they stepped out in Cheshire with their pregnant partners.
The former Coronation Street co-stars were both celebrity guests at the Mum and Me event at Mere Golf Club – with their glowing other halves flaunting their growing baby bumps.
Sam – who plays father-of-five Chesney Brown on the ITV soap – beamed as he posed for photos next to his wife Briony, while former X Factor champion Shayne posed alongside his fiancee Sophie Austin. Both couples are preparing to welcome their second child into the world.
Yoga instructor Briony cradled her growing belly while posing for the cameras, and wore a chic black midi dress and light purple coat as she attended the event with her soap star husband.

The couple, who are already parents to one-year-old Sonny, announced their second pregnancy with a sweet autumnal post last October, telling fans on Instagram: “We’re adding another pumpkin to our patch. Probably in spring 2022.”
With son Sonny born six weeks premature in August 2020, mum-to-be Briony recently shared her relief at reaching 34 weeks pregnant.
“This is the pregnancy that Sonny was born in, so it’s a big deal for me,” she explained last week.
The doting parents became husband and wife in 2019 – and tied the knot at Stock Farm in Cheshire after a two-year engagement.
Former Corrie sweetheart Shayne was also a super proud husband-to-be at the star-studded Cheshire event.
The actor, who played the late Aidan Connor on the ITV soap, looked delighted as he excitedly pointed to the former Hollyoaks star’s Sophie’s bump outside the venue.
Mom-to-be Sophie radiated in a long black coat, fitted red midi dress and chic black knee-high boats, while doting partner Shayne rocked a trilby hat and casual ensemble for her day.
The celebrity couple already have daughter Willow, five, and are expecting another baby girl in May this year.
The former soap stars shared the good news earlier this year after initially turning to IVF to conceive.
“It was one of the most emotionally draining things we’ve ever been through,” Sophie explained Hello Magazine in January.. “And it was a pretty tough process for Shayne because he wasn’t going through it physically, but it was just as tough for him.”
When IVF didn’t work after a grueling experience, Sophie conceived naturally.
“Basically, it’s in the hands of God in a way,” Shayne told the publication. “I always knew something good was coming.”
The happy couple also revealed that daughter Willow has some ideas for baby names – she wants to name her new little sister Aurora, after the Disney princess.
