Coronation Street star James Burrows, who plays Ali Neeson in the ITV soap, is engaged to his long-term girlfriend Sophie Coates.
The 28 year old actor proposed to his girlfriend during a boat ride in the Lake District, with the pair taking to Instagram to share gorgeous pictures.
Sharing a number of images from the special day, James wrote: “So at the weekend I asked my best friend to be my wife on a boat in the middle of the lake and she said yes and it’s made me one very happy man #lakedistrict #engaged #happy.”
James’ fans rushed to send him messages of congratulations, while his Corrie co-star Jack P Shepherd wrote: “Congrats burrows! X."
Faye Windass star Ellie Leach also wrote: "Ahhhhh congrats !!!!”, while Shona Ramsay actress Julia Goulding commented: "Congratulations to both of you! Xx."
Sophie also shared gorgeous images from the proposal on her Instagram, as she revealed her excitement to be getting married.
As she held up her gorgeous ring, she wrote: “I said yes! Not really, I said “are you joking” about 17 times and then I said yes.”
James and Sophie welcomed their daughter Betty earlier this year, on 25 April.
The besotted parents introduced their baby girl to the world for the first time in an exclusive OK! magazine shoot, where they unveiled her full name as Betty Florence Burrows.
However, it wasn’t the smoothest arrival for their first-born – as the pair opened up on the gruelling 46 hour labour, with Sophie, 30, being induced due to suffering from pre-eclampsia.
Baby Betty, who weighed 6lb 3oz, also had an infection and the pair were kept in hospital for ten days.
James said: “It was quite a stressful time. I just wanted to get them both home.”
Speaking about the birth, Sophie revealed their daughter was born a week early.
She said: “Towards the end of my pregnancy I got pre-eclampsia so I was induced in the end. I was in and out of hospital from 30 weeks anyway, as they were checking me for high blood pressure, and then the final time I went in they told me it had developed into pre-eclampsia.
“I was told to come back the following day at 6pm. Pre-eclampsia affects the function of the placenta so if that stops working properly it affects the baby’s growth, so it was safe to induce me.
“I was induced with a hormone drip. It was 46 hours in total. It was very intense.”
