Kym Marsh has become a grandmother for a second time.

The former 'Coronation Street' star's son David Cunliffe and his fiancee Courtney Carter welcomed a baby boy, Clayton, into the world on Wednesday (17.08.22), and the newborn weighed in at a "whopping" 10lbs 7oz.

Kym wrote on Instagram: "Introducing…..Clayton Lenny David Cunliffe!!! Our beautiful new grandson was welcomed into the world on 17.08.22 weighing a whopping 10lb 7oz!! I am so very proud of our future daughter in law @courtneyleac for being such a warrior and of our son @cunliffe890 for being the most wonderful supportive partner. You are already incredible parents and he is a very lucky little boy!! We love you so much. (sic)"

The 46-year-old actress - who became a granny for the first time in May 2019 when her daughter Emilie Cunliffe gave birth to son Teddy - "cannot wait" to watch Clayton grow.

She added: "And to our darling Clay. You are so so loved already by so many and We are so very lucky to be your YaYa and Pop. What adventures you have before you little one, we can’t wait to watch you grow… just don’t grow up too fast!!!

We love you with all of our hearts (sic)"

The ex-'Corrie' star - who played Michelle Connor on the ITV soap for over a decade, and is set to star in the BBC's upcoming revival of school-based drama 'Waterloo Road' - first announced she was to be a grandmother for a second time in February.

She wrote on Instagram: "I have been bursting to share this news for AGES!!!! I’m so very proud to announce I am gonna be a “YaYa” again!!! My wonderful son David Cunliffe and his equally wonderful fiancée Courtney are expecting their first child in August. I am so very proud of you both and I cannot wait to meet my newest grandchild!! I love you all so much. Congratulations darling.(sic)"

In March, Kym - who is to compete in this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' - revealed David and Courtney were expecting a baby boy.

Alongside a gender-reveal video, she wrote on Instagram: "It’s a boy!!!!huge congratulations to my @cunliffe890 @courtneyleac I cannot wait to meet my new grandson!!! (sic)"

In the 30-second clip posted to Instagram, David fired out an array of blue confetti from a large popper, prompting Courtney to throw her arms around him as surrounding family and friends cheered at the news.
