New mama Lebanese-Brit actress Samia Ghadie goes baby Christmas shopping 5 weeks early!

There may be over five weeks until Christmas but Samia Ghadie is keen to avoid the last-minute dash for gifts as she prepares for her first festive season with her newborn baby boy Yves Joseph.

The Coronation Street actress was pictured attempting to induce some holiday spirit as she enjoyed a shopping spree with a female friend and her young son in Cheshire on Wednesday.

Samia, 33, appeared to be taking her second stab at motherhood in her stride as she juggled babysitting duties with running errands seamlessly.

The Maria Sutherland star braved ditching every inch of make-up to reveal her bare-faced beauty.

Her skin looked flawless with not one visible blemish tarnishing her dewy complexion.

Samia was practically dressed for the low-key outing and favoured an all-black colour code.

She slipped into a pair of black skinny jeans which provided the foundation to her winter-appropriate look.

The mother-of-two teamed the staple item with a cosy black knit and an insulated padded jacket which worked wonders for beating the November chill.

She opted for comfort over style when it came to her footwear as she slipped on a pair of black baseball trainers. 

Samia appeared to have her hands full as she pushed her snug boy in his pram while she laid it down with her baby bag and therefore it was a good job her friend was on hand.

While Samia is all too familiar with raising a newborn baby - she is already a mother to six-year-old daughter Freya - her fiancé Sylvain Longchambon is a first-time father but is making good progress, according to the star.

Writing in her OK! Magazine blog, she recently revealed the former Dancing on Ice star is adapting well to the challenges of parenting.

She wrote: 'Sylvain has been amazing since Yves arrived – he's been changing nappies, bathing and burping, looking after me and generally getting stuck into everything that comes with having a baby around.'

While the engaged couple's current priority is caring for their adorable new addition, Samia has made tentative plans to reprise her role as Maria in Corrie after having left earlier in the year to rest ahead of Yves' birth and to bond with him once he arrived.

She added: 'I had a chat with my bosses at Corrie last week regarding my return date.

'We have agreed that towards the end of February is a good time for us, meaning I'll be back on screen around April. That gives me a few more precious months at home with the baby before I'm back on the cobbles, and from what I hear, there will be some big changes ahead for Maria when she returns from Cyprus.'
