Jennie McAlpine took to Twitter on Sunday to announce that she was expecting her second baby, and was quickly congratulated by her fans and Coronation Street co-stars. However, the actress later realised that she had made a typo, which gave some of her followers the wrong idea about the news. Jennie's original post read: "We've got a bit of news. Pur baby boy is going to be a big brother later this year. We can't wait to meet you precious one x," causing some people to believe that it was in fact her cat that was pregnant!

The actress later clarified that it was not the cat, but herself that was expecting a baby. She wrote: "Thanks for all your lovely messages. Obviously my baby brain is in full force again. Our baby boy. Not pur. Sorry people who got confused it was about the cat x." One follower admitted to misunderstanding the post, writing: "I totally thought it was about the cat," while another thought it was referring to her pet pug, saying: "I thought at first you were getting a puppy, that your pug was going to be a big brother."
