Jack P. Shepherd and girlfriend Lauren Shippey are expecting their first child, reports the News Of The World.

A friend of Shepherd, who plays David Platt on Coronation Street, is quoted as saying: "He hasn't been able to take the smile off his face since he found out. Both of them reckon it's the best news ever."

Shepherd's castmates Ryan Thomas (Jason Grimshaw) and Andrew Whyment (Kirk Sutherland) will also become dads later this year.

Thomas is dating former co-star Tina O'Brien, who played David's sister Sarah-Louise on the ITV1 soap from 1999 to 2007. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
