Here's everything you need to know about the teen actor who just became a father.
Who is Simon Barlow actor Alex Bain and what's his net worth?
Alex Bain, 17, was born in Blackburn, Lancashire.
He had a role in the BBC drama Sunshine before joining the Coronation Street cast back in 2008.
In the soap, he plays Simon Barlow, the son of Peter Barlow and Lucy Richards, who was adopted by Leanne Battersby.
During his time on the beloved ITV show, his tumultuous storylines have included his mother's death, various custody battles, and physical abuse.
Alex's stellar performances as the troubled teen have earned him nominations for a series of gongs.
He won Best Young Performance in The British Soap Awards in 2011, and he repeated the trick at the Inside Soap Awards a year later.
The actor reportedly has a net worth of £200,000 as of 2018.
Is Alex Bain a father?
On May 25, The Sun exclusively revealed that Alex was expecting his first baby with his high school girlfriend Levi Selby, who is also 16.
Alex is said to have been spreading the news at his school in Lancashire.
Levi announced on social media that she and Alex are expecting by posting a picture of her 12-week scan, revealing that their child is due on December 8.
A source said: "Alex has been telling everyone he’s going to be a father. He isn’t keeping it a secret.
"It’s hard to tell if he’s happy about it or not but he’s definitely not ashamed of it.
"But some people have been saying how young he is to be having a baby.
"It’s only happened to one other person at his school in recent years so it is pretty shocking."
Alex and Levi — who is not believed to attend the same school — have been together since April 2017.
Her mum Judith Calvert posted a picture of the baby scan on Facebook on Thursday.
On December 3, The Sun Online exclusively revealed that they had welcomed a baby girl named Lydia-Rose.
Has Alex Bain split from pregnant girlfriend Levi Selby?
On July 19, the Corrie star had reportedly split with his pregnant girlfriend Levi Selby.
The soon-to-be-mother took to Facebook to declare that she'd be raising the baby alone after Bain broke it off with her.
However, a source told The Sun that the couple was then seen walking happily hand in hand in Blackburn after the rumours emerged.
On August 5, 2018, Alex denied splitting from his pregnant girlfriend and revealed his excitement at the birth of his daughter Lydia Rose in December.
A source said: “They’ve been through a bad patch but are now stronger than ever and so excited to meet their baby.
“It feels even more real now they’ve got a name. They just want to shout it from the rooftops.”
