Brooke Vincent and her partner Kean Bryan have welcomed a baby boy after becoming parents to their son Mexx in 2019, with the couple choosing another unusual name for their second child
Brooke Vincent has given birth to her second son, and she’s given him an unusual name.
It is another unusual name choice for the couple, who are also parents to Mexx, one.
Brooke – who is known for playing Sophie Webster – announced their happy news on her Instagram account on Thursday evening alongside the first picture she’s shared of little Monroe.
In the adorable black and white snap, only the bottom of his babygro and tiny legs and feet could be seen as the couple kept Monroe’s face hidden.

She captioned the post: “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!”
Brooke added that she and Kean, as well as new big brother Mexx, are “besotted” with the new member of their family.
“Me, your daddy & big brother are all besotted with you,” she wrote, finishing the post with globe and blue love heart emojis.
The photo attracted lots of well wishes from Brooke’s celebrity pals, with Jess Wright commenting: “Congratulations lovely.”
“The best news, huge congratulations,” Sophie Austin wrote.
“Thrilled for you darling,” Georgia Taylor said, adding blue love heart emojis.
A representative for the couple told OK! Magazine that the family is “thrilled” and both mum and baby are doing well.
“Brooke and Kean are thrilled and mum and baby are settling in well,” a rep told the publication.
The happy couple have been together since 2016 and moved in together after two years of dating.
Before she gave birth, Brooke shared her hopes with her fans that her boys Mexx and Monroe would become best friends for life.
“It’s nice to know I’m having a boy and he will be so close in age to Mexx hopefully they will be little besties,” Brooke told followers in a Q&A at the start of the year.
Mexx is due to turn two-years-old in October.
Brooke had launched a successful maternity clothing line with In The Style while she was pregnant.
She left Coronation Street in 2019 to go on maternity leave after welcoming Mexx with her last scenes airing that October.
The new mum is yet to make a return to the ITV soap.
