Huge congratulations are in order for Julia Goulding who has become a mum for the very first time. The Coronation Street actress gave birth to a healthy baby boy on November 30.

The actress chose the perfect name for her son. She decided to call him Franklin.

The name Franklin is of English origin and means ‘a freeman’.

Julia shared a photo that was taken the day before her son was born. She is smiling next to her husband Ben in the stunning photo.

The mum opened up about her baby boy, “He’s changed our lives for the better in every way. I feel like I’ve known him my whole life.”

We couldn’t be happier for the Coronation Street star and Ben. Little Franklin is certainly the best early Christmas present they ever could have asked for.
