Catherine Tyldesley has given birth to baby boy

Catherine Tyldesley has given birth to her first child.

The 'Coronation Street' actress has welcomed her and her fiance Tom Pitfield's little boy into the world and they've also announced that they've decided to name him Alfie.

She wrote on Twitter: "We made a wish and you came true. Welcome Alfie James Pitfield. We love you beyond words @TP_PTfitness #Besotted. (sic)"

Tom added: "Welcome to the world Son. Alfie James Pitfield. @Cath_Tyldesley you made the happiest man in the world. Thank you x (sic)."

The 31-year-old star announced she and Tom were expecting their first child together last August, less than a year since they first go together.

The personal trainer then asked the blonde beauty to marry him just a week later.

Meanwhile, Catherine recently confessed she was looking forward to giving birth to her first child as she was tired of being pregnant.

She said previously: "When you're halfway through you feel like nine months is such a long time, but now it's really close I'm actually excited about going into labour. I'm so impatient and that's when I'll know he's on his way."

The soap star, who plays Eva Price in 'Corrie', also claimed she was planning to use hypnobirthing, where the fear and tension associated with going into labour is diminished or eliminated with hypnotherapy, to help welcome her son into the world instead of drugs.

She added: "I got into meditation a while ago ... A few of my friends told me to look into hypnobirthing because it made sense with the meditating - the more relaxed you are, the calmer the baby will be."
