Coronation Street's Kate Connor and Rana Nazir have been through a lot just so that they can be together, but things are starting to look up for the couple. Kate and Rana, played by Faye Brookes and Bhavna Limbachia, are reportedly set to engaged in the next couple of weeks - and it's now being reported that they're planning to have a baby very soon.

According to, the couple will concoct a plan to have a baby with Robert Preston, played by Tristan Gemmill, who is currently in a relationship with Michelle Connor, played by Kym Marsh.

But Michelle will tell Robert that she doesn't want to have any more children, since she already has two grown-up sons - Ali and Ryan - and, of course, tragically lost son Ruairí with ex-husband Steve McDonald after he was stillborn in a heartbreaking storyline last year.

Robert is crushed by the news that he'll never have any kids of his own, and when Kate and Rana approach him with their secret IVF idea, he's more receptive to it than he normally would have been.

According to, a TV insider has revealed exactly how things go down, saying that Robert is "gutted" when Michelle says she doesn’t want more kids, and when Kate and Rana hear about this, "their ears practically prick up".

They added, "They beg him to do it for them as they’re looking to settle down and have a family. Obviously there’s some convincing to be done and he eventually gets swayed when they say he can do it anonymously."
