She penned alongside the post: "“Our gorgeous boy is 2 today. He is 2 days old in this photo, and I've still never known a baby look so much like their father."

Baby Sonny still had his eyes closed in the photo with a blanket wrapped around him.

Sam shared a photo as the couple welcomed their son two years ago, kissing the baby’s head with his wife by his side.

He wrote at the time: "Welcome to the world little man. Our little ray of sunshine. Sonny James Aston."

Sam and Briony tied the knot in 2019 after a two-year long engagement.

The lovebirds first met on MSN messenger.

They got chatting online as young smitten teenagers and romance soon blossomed.

"Briony and I met when I was about 15 or 16," he told the Mirror.

"We got together, but we were very young. I ended it – which she always likes to bring up.

"We lived quite far from each other and because we were so young, neither of us drove.

They soon rediscovered their spark and it quickly got rather serious.

He added: "Three or four years later we were both helping out at the same drama workshop. Carol Godby's acting school, which is where I started as a youngster.

"I was teaching and Briony was in the room next door. I think she might have given me a funny look when I first walked in, but we soon got past that and straight away we got talking.

"We went for a meal that night at a country pub and that was it. We've been together ever since."

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday on ITV at 8pm
