BROOKE Vincent has paid emotional tribute to her footballer boyfriend Kean Bryan after they welcomed their second son on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old star announced the safe arrival of baby Monroe on Instagram yesterday, with she and Kean already mum and dad to toddler Mexx.
And the actress admitted that seeing Kean be father to her children “means everything” as she shared a sweet snap of the sportsman tenderly cradling their newborn.
In the black and white photo, Kean is gazing adoringly at his little boy, who is laying peacefully in his arms.
Brooke wrote: “Watching you love our babies the way you do means everything to me. The best Daddy.”
The two stars first started dating in 2016, moving in together two years later.
In October 2019 they welcomed their first child together, with Brooke shocking fans when she revealed that she was pregnant with her second just over a year after giving birth.
The Sophie Webster actress said at the time: “I’m quite chilled about it. I’m really lucky with Mexx, because he’s a good baby.
“But I just think to myself, ‘You don’t have any other option!’ So if he’s up all night crying, I can’t give him to anyone, so I have to just deal with it.
“It’s a perk having them together and growing together – that’s what I really wanted.”

The proud mum wrote: “On the morning of Tuesday 4th May at 8.14am; the exact same time as his big brother .. Our little boy came into the world.
“Monroe S J Bryan you’ve added so much love & happiness to our little family! Me, your daddy & big brother are all besotted with you ”

They explained at the time: “The door is open for Brooke to return whenever she wishes but that won’t be before the birth and so the executives are realistically looking at next summer before she’s in a place to start talking about her Corrie job.
“That will mean she’s been away from the soap for two years.”
Speaking on an Instagram Story Q&A last year, Brooke admitted: “I’m not too sure [when I’ll be back] yet, as I didn’t take typical maternity.
“I’ve been on Corrie since I was 11 so it’s nice to have some time to be with my new baby and in our new home before going back. Hopefully not too long though.”
