Hollyoaks’ Emmett J. Scanlan and Claire Cooper expecting second child together

Hollyoaks stars Emmett J. Scanlan and Claire Cooper have revealed that they're having another baby.

The couple, who starred as Brendan Brady and Jacqui McQueen on the hit soap, already share almost-two year old son Ocean-Torin Scanlan together.

Sharing a snap of their son touching his mum's bump, Claire, 41, wrote: "Our family is growing," followed by a white heart and baby face emoji.

Peaky Blinders actor Emmett, 43, shared the same snap writing: "Incoming…"

People have since rushed to congratulate the couple, with Strictly Come Dancing star Gemma Atkinson leading the comments.

She wrote: "Beautiful [heart emoj] such lovely news! Congratulations x".

"So many congratulations," wrote someone else, as a third branded it as "the best news".

The news of their pregnancy comes after Claire and Emmett lost a baby in 2019 – before the birth of son Ocean – leaving Claire "fighting for her life".

Sharing the difficult news on social media, doting husband Emmett wrote next to a photo of him holding his wife's hand posted in October 2020: "July of last year we lost our baby and in the process my wife was left fighting for her life. Exactly 12months later and after 40 hours of labour with an emergency C-Section Ocean-Torin was born.

"The trauma her body and mind went through in that year is beyond anything I can possibly comprehend. Helpless, all I could do was hold her hand. And once again, I fell in love just a little bit more."
