Brooke Vincent has opened up about baby names after revealing she’s pregnant with baby number two in an exclusive interview with OK! magazine.

The 28 year old Coronation Street actress, who is already mum to son Mexx, one, with partner Kean Bryan, admitted the couple still have names they “love” from the first time around.

She said: “We had a couple of names with Mexx, because we didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl. So I’m thinking: ‘What do you do with the second? Do you find a new name that you love?’

“We absolutely still love some of the names we were speaking about for Mexx. It’s strange because once you see them, you know whether the name suits them or not.”

Brooke and Sheffied United footballer Kean, 24, have chosen not to find out the baby’s gender.

She revealed: “We’re not going to find out. We want to keep it as a surprise.

“With Mexx, everyone had their opinion. Even my midwife was like, ‘I think it’s a girl!’ Everyone thought it was a girl, so then I thought it was a girl.”

But Brooke says she doesn’t mind what she has, explaining: “Everyone says this, but I think it’s more magnified when you’re actually having a baby that you just want them to be healthy, so I really don’t mind.

“I didn’t mind with Mexx, either. I’m happy with whatever I’m given. Mexx is the best little thing in the world so if I get another boy, fabulous, if I get a girl and she’s like me, then we’re going to have chaos!”

She continued: “I’m just chaos! Mexx has Kean’s temperament because he’s quite laid-back and really chilled, whereas I’m 100 miles per hour and everything has to be done yesterday.”

Brooke found out she was pregnant at five weeks, explaining: “I’m quite regular so I know when something isn’t normal.

“The first time you find out you’re pregnant, it’s a massive shock and you get all these kinds of emotions.

"We wanted another baby and we wanted them close together, so it was just a really warming moment. We were just really happy. I think I cried because I was so happy!”

She added: “We weren’t necessarily trying, but it wasn’t a surprise either. It was something we’d spoken about. We said we wanted a baby sooner rather than later because we wanted them to grow up together.”
