Coronation Street star Julia Goulding has welcomed her second child with her husband, Ben Silver.
Julia Goulding, 37, who plays Shona Platt in Coronation Street, has announced the arrival of her daughter in a heartwarming Instagram post. The actress has gushed that she and her husband Ben Silver are “absolutely elated” as they bring their daughter home for the first time.
Julia shared a snap to Instagram today, in view of her 133,000 followers, showing herself and her husband along with the baby as they left the hospital.
She captioned the post: “On Saturday our little girl arrived.
“We’re absolutely elated and Franklin is besotted with his little sister, Emmeline Beanie Silver. She’s perfect.”
Friends and social media users alike rushed to the comments to share their congratulations to the actress.

Sophie Webster actress Brooke Vincent and Sally’s onscreen daughter added: “DARLING CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! Look at you both!!!! Well done.”
Social media user Camcow2011 commented: “Awwww that’s fantastic and amazing Julia that you have now given birth to your little baby girl.
“Awwww congratulations and I’m really very happy and blessed for you both there too.” (sic)
In June, Julia shared the news that she was expecting her second child as she unveiled her bump on the red carpet at the British Soap Awards.
This was not Julia’s first pregnancy, after she welcomed her first child with Ben, named Franklin Wolf in 2019.
At the time she shared the joyous announcement on her Instagram account, with a snap of herself and Ben posing in a park shortly after she went into labour.
Captioning the image wrote: “Thank you to the lovely couple in the park who took this picture for us: Taken as I was in early labour on my due date.
“The next day Ben and I welcomed our baby son into the world. Franklin Wolf Silver born on 30/11/19.
“He’s changed our lives for the better in every way. I feel like I’ve known him my whole life.”
The actress took a four month break from filming before returning to set in March 2020, however it wasn’t long then that filming paused due to Covid.
Julia and Ben became engaged after three years of dating but kept the happy moment private for a total of ten months.
They tied the knot on stage at Manchester’s Albert Hall in February 2019, surrounded by friends and family.
The couple unconventionally walked up the aisle together hand in hand, with this being their own choice.
