Coronation Street star Sam Aston plays Chesney Brown on the hit soap, the father of seven-month old quadruplets.

However, the actor, 26, himself is only expecting one child with his wife Briony, which he is relived about.

Speaking of his first child, which will be born in September, he told OK!: “We’re glad it’s not quads like Chesney! One’s perfect and just enough for now.”

The pair are having a little boy, and are so excited that they have already began decorating a nursery in time for the tots arrival.

Although it is not yet completed, they have shown OK! some of the fabulous details of the room. Let’s take a look inside…

The floor of the nursery has not been laid yet, but we can see that the couple have elected to have a night sky print of a crescent moon and stars as a feature wall in the room; setting a perfect scene for sleep.

In the corner of the nursery is a book shelf full of story books they intend to read to their son, including books that were Sam's favourite when he was a little child.

He told OK!: "I'm looking forward to revisiting these, because obviously I have not read them for many years."

The rest of the walls in the room are painted an off-white colour, keeping the room fresh and light for their little boy. Because the room is unfinished, the couple have only just started putting up trinkets and decorations.

On the wall we can see that the pair have an empty photo frame as well as wooden name blocks, which Sam admitted "are personalised, secret unfortunately".

The couple remain tightlipped on the moniker they have chosen for their child, even to those close to them as, Briony revealed: "It's a five letter name though, my family keep guessing or trying to guess what the name is."


In the nursery there is also an adorable fluffy teddy bear, which will be going in a memory box. Briony shared that it would have been accompanied by the used pregnancy test, but the family springer spaniel chewed it up.

What is so special about the bear is that it has an audio recording of their baby's heartbeat from the seventh week scan inside it, which is activated by pressing the teddy's chest. Briony says: "This is all we had for so long, until we had our 12 week scan."

Also in the room is a lovely egg board, which reads "Daddy – you are a – Good Egg". Sam told us: "That was how I found out, when Briony made me breakfast, which is a very, very rare occasion!"



The pair are hoping that their first child will be one of many.

Sam revealed: "We’d like a big family. I’m one of nine children and I’m grateful to be part of a huge family, as it’s magical, but I’m not sure we’ll go to nine.
