Coronation Street’s Alex Bain has become a dad at 17

Earlier this year, it was revealed that 17-year-old Coronation Street actor Alex Bain was to set to become a teenage dad, when he announced he was expecting a baby with his girlfriend Levi Selby.

It has now been revealed that Alex, who plays Simon Barlow on Coro St, and Levi, 16, have welcomed a little girl into the world and have given her an adorable, unusual name – Lydia-Rose Bain. Levi revealed the name on Facebook.

Lydia-Rose was born on Saturday.

Although no photos have been released yet, messages of congratulations have been flooding in for the couple, with one fan saying, "Congratulations Levi and Alex on the birth of your baby girl!!"

A source told The Sun: "They are absolutely over the moon — it's the greatest gift they could have hoped for this Christmas."

The pair started dating in April 2017 and news they were expecting spread after Alex told friends at his school in Lancashire.

Alex has been part of the Coronation Street cast for 10 years, and won Best Young Performance at the British Soap Awards in 2011 for his portrayal of Peter Barlow's son and Ken Barlow's grandson.
