Michelle is thrilled for singer Jodie Connor

Michelle Keegan is delighted that one of her pals recently became a mummy.

The ex-Coronation Street actress, 27, sent a sweet Twitter message to singer Jodie Connor yesterday after she welcomed a son last week.

‘Congratulations @JodieConnor on the birth of your baby boy! He’s gorgeous! 💙 Sorry for the delay. Xxx,’ Tweeted Michelle.

Jodie, 33, replied: ‘Thanks babe! He’s amazing!’

Michelle has had some exciting developments in her own personal life recently – she and fiancé Mark Wright moved into their first home together last week.

The gorgeous brunette relocated from Manchester to Mark’s home county of Essex so she could be close to London for new acting opportunities.

Michelle is thrilled with her new pad.

‘So many of my loved ones have lived away from home, my brother lived in America for a while and one of my best friends lives in Oman,’ she writes in her Hello! blog.

‘OK Essex isn’t Oman, but my new home is amazing.’
