Chris Bisson has popped the question to partner Rowena Finn

The sweet couple are parents to two children; son Harry, who turned three in January, and daughter Ella Rose, who was born in December. The couple proudly introduced their baby girl in an exclusive interview with HELLO! magazine in January, and spoke for the first time about the drama surrounding her birth.

"Just like a scene from a film, there was this cinematic race to the hospital. She was born seven minutes later (after our arrival) after one puff of gas and air," Chris, who plays scheming businessman Jai Sharma in the ITV soap, told HELLO!.

New mum Rowena added: "I was terrified. I really believed I was going to give birth in the car. If it had been rush hour, we wouldn't have made it."

Chris also revealed that becoming a father has changed his approach to his role as a villain. "I enjoy playing a baddie but since becoming a father I find some baby-related storylines challenging," he said. "When Harry was born, the plot revolved around a baby in intensive care. I've been filming another harrowing story that hasn't been revealed yet. It makes me realise how lucky I am."
