In August, Brooke headed off on maternity leave, with her character Sophie being written out temporarily to go travelling. The star spoke about her emotional departure from the soap on Instagram and opened up about her excitement at becoming a first-time mum. She wrote: "I can’t believe 15 years ago I came onto the street to play 'Sophie Webster' and today I left to play my biggest role yet, 'Mummy'. My amazing family at Coronation Street I am going to miss you all so much. Thank you for always looking after me, for keeping me on the straight and narrow and for letting me get away with murder over the years."
The actress and her footballer beau have been together since summer 2016 after being introduced by mutual friends. They announced Brooke's pregnancy in April and have been keeping fans updated on her progress ever since. In June to mark Father's Day, the mum-to-be even shared a sweet image of Kean's socks emblazoned with a cute message on them. The socks read: "Happy Father's Day Daddy. Love Baby B. Last chance to put your feet up." Next to the snap, Brooke wrote: "There is no doubt in my mind what an amazing Daddy you will be to our baby. Today has a whole new meaning for us both. A day we will now forever celebrate."
