The Street's Tracy Barlow gives birth


Coronation Street‘s Kate Ford has become a mum.

The actress – who played Tracy Barlow in the soap – and her TV producer husband Jon Connerty are said to be overjoyed.

‘It’s lovely news,’ a Corrie source tells the Daily Mirror. ‘She has been really looking forward to becoming a mum.’

The sex of the baby has not been revealed by the couple, who have a deal with a glossy mag.

Kate, 30, left the ITV soap last year when her character was sent to jail for murder.
