Paula Lane gives birth

Paula Lane has given birth to her second child.

The former 'Coronation Street' actress and husband Tom Shaw - who already have son Arthur, 19 months, together - have welcomed a daughter into the world, though they haven't yet revealed her name or other details surrounding her birth.

Paula tweeted: "She's here! The latest addition to the Shaw clan is doing great. @SirTomShaw and I are feeling blessed and very lucky. (sic)"

The couple were immediately inundated with congratulations messages from Paula's 'Corrie' co-stars.

Georgia May Foote wrote: "@lane_paula @SirTomShaw congratulations to you both."

Sally Dynevor tweeted: "lane_paula SirTomShaw congratulations on your new addition. So exciting much love."

With Paula's 'Coronation Street' alter ego, Kylie Platt, shockingly killed off earlier this month, the 30-year-old star recently admitted she intends to take six months off with her family before looking for a new acting job.

She said: "I'm going to have as much time off as I can. It would be nice to have six months off and then an amazing job to come my way. I'm also mindful not to take the first thing I'm offered - it has to be something very different from 'Corrie'. "

And Paula has been turning to former co-star Katherine Kelly - who plays her on-screen sister Becky McDonald - for parenting advice.

Speaking of her friend, who has two-year-old daughter Orla with her husband Ryan Clark, Paula said "Katherine has always been so helpful. We became quite close and, although she's very busy these days, she's given me loads of advice - especially about work and being a working mum. It's the work-life balance that's very tricky but I'm hoping it might be easier now."
