Chris and his long-term girlfriend Rowena are already the proud parents to son Harry, who is turning three next year. The actor, who is best known for playing Jai Sharma on the soap, found out that his wife was carrying a girl on his 40th birthday.

"It was the best birthday present ever," Chris told HELLO! "For the first time I saw our baby's face and she was sleeping with her little hand behind her head, just like Harry and I do.

"When she said, 'You've got a little pink one,' we were ecstatic. I'd hoped, deep down, that our second child would be a girl and my wish came true."

He added: "I'm so excited. After Harry was born, I was – and still am – totally besotted with him; I know I'll love my little daughter with all my heart, too."

And the couple added that Harry cannot wait to be a big brother.

"Since he started to comprehend more about what is happening, he kisses my bump every morning and night, saying, 'Good morning,' and, 'Good night,'" said Rowena. "It's very touching."

The youngster played a special part in Chris and Rowena's pregnancy announcement. He dressed up as a superhero and ran around the garden, holding a sign that read: "Every superhero needs a sidekick".

"Harry will be a big brother!" Chris tweeted. "@row_finn & I are delighted to be expecting #babyNumber2 in December. #SuperheroSidekick."
