The actor, who stars as Chesney Brown in the ITV series, shared the exciting news on Instagram with an adorable picture of his 14-month-old son Sonny.

Briony also posted the same lovely photo on her Instagram account, captioning it with a sparkle emoji.

In May 2019 Sam married his childhood sweetheart Briony in a stunning Cheshire ceremony. The couple tied the knot at Stock Farm, on the outskirts of Tatton Park, with Sam describing himself as "the luckiest man alive".

Back in 2017, Sam got down on one knee and proposed in front of over 250 guests at the Worsley Park Marriott Hotel in Salford, sharing the engagement news on Instagram with a cute video of the special moment.
