Coronation Street star Sair Khan has made her co-stars 'excited' as she seemingly counted down to welcoming her first child into the world. The actress announced she was pregnant back in December.

Sair, who is known for playing Alya Nazir in the ITV soap, admitted she was feeling 'a real mix of emotions' as she posed up beside her partner Nathan Chilton to reveal the news of their pregnancy joy following a 'challenging time' for the couple.

The mum-to-be wrote at the time: "Hello… It’s been a little while since posting on here which has been a real mix of emotions. With all that is happening in the world, it didn’t feel like the right time to share but we also know it’s okay to keep hope and pray for peace whilst acknowledging that we feel blessed and grateful."

She continued: "Last year was a challenging time for us both with Nathan’s chondroblastoma surgery on his pelvis. It’s been a long road to recovery and still has many obstacles ahead as we deal with the spread of the tumour to his lungs. Life can be difficult and there’ll always be challenges to face but there are also important lessons to be learnt and gifts to be cherished."

Sair then later asked her fans and followers to 'wish us luck' as she revealed she and Nathan had a bit of a task on their hands as they moved home ahead of their baby's arrival as they described planned renovations on the property their "biggest project of our lives".

But amidst working on Corrie and getting her home ready for her bundle of joy, Sair has been celebrating and recently gathered her nearest and dearest to celebrate the impending arrival at her baby shower. Now, in her new update, Sair revealed she's been able to do some relaxing in a break with her beau while also preparing for their little one's arrival.

In a string of images and video shared to Instagram, the soap star's blossoming baby bump could be seen as she enjoyed a "last minute babymoon" with Nathan at a spa before they tested out their birthing pool, hinting their hoping to have a home water birth, and enjoyed time together in the outdoors.

Captioning the post, Sair wrote: "The past week in readiness for our lil Spring awakening," adding a flower and a baby emoji. She then explained each picture and video in turn, writing: "
@titanic_spa for a last-minute baby moon and the BEST pregnancy massage from a lovely therapist called Imogen (highly recommend her if you go!) I can’t believe I only managed to fit in one pregnancy massage this whole time. But it was 1000% times worth it. #giftedstay.

"Nathan and I have been pulling cards each morning from @therisingcircle They’ve been such a great guide for setting our daily intentions and staying grounded. The moving continues (not sure if it will ever end at this point). Birth-pool testing and baby thumps. A cheeky Nando’s refuel and dance party between trips to buy mops and house bits. Trying my best to keep it moving with the most gentle of walks."

And many of Sair's past and present Corrie co-stars rushed to respond to the post as she awaits giving birth. Sally Carman-Durine, who plays Abi Webster, said: "Gorgeous! So excited for you both", while former Emma Brooker star Alexandra Mardell wrote: "Gorgeous!!!! Eeeeeeeee so excited" [sic]. Katie McGlynn, who played Sinead Tinker, replied: "Love this! So excited for you both! Beautiful" Former Sunita Alahan star Shobna Gulati added: "So excited."
