Ex-CBeebies presenter Sarah-Jane Honeywell and her husband, actor Ayden Callaghan, are expecting their second child.
The couple revealed they were having another baby in a spectacular announcement video, akin to big budget trailers for Hollywood-style action films.
The tongue-in-cheek video begins with the words: ‘August 2015, Phoenix Arrived’, boldly emblazoned across the screen, referring to the arrival of their eldest son.
‘Mummy’s heart was stolen; she was reborn Daddy’s soul was renewed.’
The text has been interspersed with home-video footage of Phoenix’s earliest memories, family days out and bath-times, with dramatic music laid over the top.
‘Next year, is Phoenix’s biggest challenge yet’, it continues, as footage of ultrascans begin to appear in the video. ‘In February 2018, get ready for baby #2…’
‘Coming soon, “Little Bro”.’
The pregnancy announcement was shared to former Hollyoaks actor Ayden’s Instagram, under the moniker ‘Callaghan Productions’.
Fans were seriously impressed with his work, with many taking to the comments to congratulate him on his creativity – and, of course, the wonderful news.
‘What a fantastic film and great news, congratulations,’ said one excited commenter.
Another agreed: ‘Congratulations Ayden, wonderful news. A very creative way of revealing it!’
The couple appear to have taken to parenting like naturals since their son’s arrival two years ago, and their life with Phoenix is already well documented on their social media accounts.
In recent years, they’ve both stepped out of the spotlight – Ayden’s character Joe Roscoe was killed off in the Channel 4 series after falling from a burning Ferris wheel.
Sarah-Jane, meanwhile, reportedly lost her presenting job on the children’s TV channel after posing nearly naked for a campaign by the animal rights charity PETA in 2011.
She appeared in Trafalgar Square on a giant ‘plate’ along side fake chips, peas, and ketchup, for a stunt in aid of World Vegan Day.

She said at the time: ‘I only have myself to blame I know that but the children loved me and I was passionate about giving them joy and I stupidly thought that would be enough.’
‘Now I know you have to behave as well. Something I am trying to get a handle on. I guess I’m still in my own terrible two’s stage.’
