TV star Rebecca, 31, who rose to fame on Channel 4 comedy series Shameless, cradled her blossoming belly.
The Corrie favourite – who is now known for playing Lydia Chambers in the ITV programme – donned a sparkling dress.
Letting her brunette locks flow down her chest, the actress smiled wide as she appeared with minimal make-up.
She towered high in black heels as she wore a tight-fitting sparkling silver dress which showed off her bump.
Rebecca captioned the post, as she stood by the Christmas tree: “I thought this year couldn’t get any better after marrying the man of my dreams.
“Turns out it can, can’t wait to become a mummy in 2023.”
But the star had been dropping subtle clues she was expecting by altering her social media posts.
Rebecca had stopped posting pictures of her drinking alcohol – with her last public display of drinking in August while she attended a Westlife concert.
She had also been sharing a number of throwback pictures instead of sharing new captures with fans.
In one post, she wore a gorgeous summer dress as she walked along a beach.
She captioned the post: “Dreaming of those white sand beaches.”
Last month Rebecca even blurred out her tummy from a post she shared in a bid to keep the pregnancy under wraps.
