The news came amidst a week of family celebrations, including an unexpected homecoming, a milestone birthday bash for her sister Maureen, and Denise Nolan's nuptials.

Coleen gushed: "The cherry on the cake was a visit from my son Jake and his partner Georgia."

She excitedly announced: "I can finally reveal that I'm going to be a grandmother again, as they're expecting a baby at the end of the year.

"On Saturday, a few of us got together at my house for the gender reveal and, just as I said, 'I think it's a boy', Jake let off the confetti gun and turned the living room blue. I couldn't be more thrilled about having a grandson."

This year has been full of joy for Coleen, with her daughter getting engaged in April.

Ciara has just announced her engagement to beau Max after he proposed in the most romantic setting in Vietnam.

Proud mum Coleen couldn't contain her excitement as she took to social media to share the news with her own followers. She exclaimed: "Well what can I say... I'm so so delighted that @maxxinnes has asked my beautiful girl @ciarafensome to marry him. I love them both sooooo much. Miss them even more! Can't wait to see them. Off to buy a hat."

Recounting the moment, she wrote: "Well, what an incredible week it's been for family celebrations. My daughter Ciara and her fiance Max surprised me by coming home early from their travels.

"My partner Michael, who was in on the secret, made me get out of bed at 8am on my day off, insisting I had to let the ducks out! So, I was sitting in the garden having a cuppa, wondering why he couldn't deal with the ducks, when Ciara walked through the gates."

She continued to express her joy at having her daughter back, revealing that Ciara has already turned the annexe of her new house into a stunning little nest for herself and Max, while jokingly lamenting that her own place is still in disarray: "I'm so happy to have her back and she's already transformed the annexe at my new house into the most gorgeous little home for her and Max.

"My place, on the other hand, still looks like it's been burgled!"
