Kym Marsh has announced she is going to be a grandmother as her daughter Emilie is pregnant with her first child.
The 42-year-old "Coronation Street" star couldn't be happier that Emilie, 21, is expecting a baby with her boyfriend of six months - although she has known him for years - and is looking forward to being a very hands-on grandparent.
Speaking in the new issue of OK! magazine - which features mother and daughter on the cover - Kym said: "I'm looking forward to being a young grandmother. We've both had time to get our heads around it and now we're over the moon. It makes me feel so emotional that my baby is having a baby of her own."
Emilie was nervous about telling her mum and her dad - who is Kym's ex-boyfriend Dave Cunliffe - that she was pregnant but she need not have worried as they were both very supportive.
Emilie - who previously auditioned for pop star search show "The Voice" - said: "I keep thinking, am I really going to be able to do this? For ages I couldn't actually get the words "I'm pregnant" out of my mouth because I didn't know how people would react - I even made mum tell my dad! "Luckily I have the most supportive parents in the world and they're both really excited."
Kym herself was only 18 when she fell pregnant with her oldest son David and she gave birth to Emilie when she was 21, the same age her daughter is now, and she knows her experience of being a young mum will help her child adapt to parenthood.
The former Hear'Say singer - whose own mum was 18 when she had her brother - said: "I know what it's like to be young and pregnant - it's scary, but Emilie will be a great mum ... Me, Emilie and David are best friends and I think that's because there isn't a huge age gap between us."
Kym and Emilie's full interview appears in this week's OK! magazine which is out now.
