Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent has given fans a glimpse inside her 30th birthday celebrations after she partied with her sons and footballer fiancé Kean Bryan.
The 30 year old actress, who played Sophie Webster in the ITV soap for 15 years, said "how lucky I am" in a series of snaps shared with her 937k followers on Instagram.
Brooke, who recently announced she was engaged to West Bromwich Albion defender Kean Bryan, marked her landmark birthday with some celebratory festivities at home before heading out to a family meal at The Ivy in Manchester.
In a birthday Instagram Reel, Brooke, glass of bubbly in hand, woke to find her lounge filled with orange, white and gold balloons and a large LED 30 birthday light feature.
The room was full of cards, presents and golden birthday details, including a large sign that read "oh so THIRTY".
Separately, she shared pictures alongside her loved-ones in front of the light-up 30 and balloon archway.
In one snap, she is wearing a long-sleeved white roll-neck top and black dress, and green sliders, while holding her youngest child Monroe, one.
Fiancé Kean, who plays at West Bromwich Albion alongside newly-married Andy Carroll, is smiling at the camera with their two year old son Mexx in his arms.
Later, Brooke is snapped outside the swanky Manchester restaurant, The Ivy, styling a blazer over her birthday outfit and having swapped her sliders for boots.
She looked to be having time of her life as she poses in a pair of sunnies, tongue out and arm raised.
Photos of Brooke through the ages were on display, hanging from string above their table at dinner.
Pictures of the actress as a child, posing for headshots and out for dinner with Kean were part of the sentimental snapshots.
Back at home, Brooke gave a selfie-style cheers to the camera before the clip switched to a behind the scenes glimpse of her and her family members posing for the camera.
Well-wishes came flooding in from her fans and former co-stars, including Sally Carman who plays stepmum Abi Webster.
Sally wrote: "Just gorgeous Brooke, happy birthday cockle shell."
One user commented: "Aww looks amazing hope you had the most special day you deserve it lots of love", while another said: "This is just gorgeous Brooke, happy 30th birthday."
Georgia Taylor who plays Toyah Battersby in Coronation Street said: "Happy birthday you absolute rock star!! We miss you xxx"
Brooke hasn't been seen on-screen after leaving to go on maternity leave while pregnant with first son Mexx, who was born in October 2019.
The star revealed that she was engaged to her boyfriend of six years, Kean Bryan, in April last year before the couple welcome their second son Monroe in May 2021.
The 30 year old was expected to make a return after giving birth to Monroe, but later changed her mind.
Speaking to the Daily Star last year about "postponing" her return to acting, Brooke said: "I left [Corrie] to have my first little boy and then I always knew I wanted my children close together so then I had my other little boy, and I'm just being a mum at the minute."
"Anybody that’s got children will tell you how hard it is to even to put the washing in the washing machine."
She added: "So yeah, I’m just being a mum and getting myself back and trying to get us into a routine and focusing on them.
"It’s kind of a decision that we made as a family and it’s just nice to have that special time with them without having major distractions of what’s been going on."
