Sam Aston’s relationship with yoga teacher wife including the time he dumped her

Coronation Street star Sam Aston, who’s played Chesney on the show for over 20 years, has announced the birth of his second child with wife Briony.

The pair welcomed their first daughter into the world after having their first child Sonny in August 2020.

Sonny was born six weeks prematurely and opening up about finding out that she was pregnant again, Briony told OK!: “We were actually trying not to get pregnant!

"Just because Sonny was so premature – my concern was having two too close together and having another premature baby. But it just happened!”

The couple has been together since they were teenagers, but their relationship didn’t get off to the best start.

As they welcome their second child together, we’ve taken a look back at their time together.

Who is Sam Aston’s wife Briony?

Sam Aston’s wife Briony is a certified yoga teacher and last year she opened her own baby yoga studio, especially for mums.

Briony was teaching yoga before she had her first child with her husband Sam, but after giving birth to Sonny in 2020 she wanted to provide a space where mums can get support from other mums.

Speaking about the opening of Happy Baby Studio she said: “I already teach yoga, so I thought it would be fun to do it and bring mums and babies together with others.”

How did Sam Aston meet his wife?

Sam and Briony first met when they were teenagers, but it wasn’t straight sailing for the pair, with Sam admitting to the Mirror that he actually ended up dumping Briony early in their relationship because he thought they were too young.

He said: "Briony and I met when I was about 15 or 16.

"We talked through MSN messenger and then went on a date. We got together, but we were very young. I ended it – which she always likes to bring up."

But luckily it was meant to be, and a few years down the line the pair rekindled their romance after meeting again at a drama workshop.

Sam said: "Three or four years later we were both helping out at the same drama workshop, Carol Godby’s acting school, which is where I started as a youngster.

"I was teaching and Briony was in the room next door.

"I think she might have given me a funny look when I first walked in, but we soon got past that and straight away we got talking.

"We went for a meal that night at a country pub and that was it. We’ve been together ever since.”

When did Sam and Briony get married?

In 2017 Sam proposed to Briony in front of 250 people at an annual charity golf dinner that he hosts with his co-stars Alan Halsall and Andy Whyment.

Speaking about the engagement to OK! Sam said: “We’re quite private people so I wanted to do something she wouldn’t expect from me.”

Two years later in 2019, the pair got married at Stock Farm in Cheshire.

Their wedding was attended by a host of stars including Sam’s co-stars Colson Smith, Katie McGlynn and Brooke Vincent.

The wedding also featured a unique twist, a yoga-themed first dance.
