The actor has revealed that he and his wife Christie Goddard are planning to adopt a baby, making them parents of four and him a father of six. 

According to The Mirror, Shane said: “All I’ve known is sleepless nights and nappies, but we are talking about adopting. Christie wants to. She’s a great mum.

“We could have more children of our own, but I think because of that it’s like, ‘why don’t we adopt?’

“We may foster, but because our children are six, nine and 11 we might get a baby.”

Shane and Christie already have three children, while he has two sons from his marriage to Loose Women’s Coleen Nolan. 

The Alfie Moon actor is currently taking a break from screen work, having recently appeared in EastEnders spin-off Redwater.

However, according to Shane’s co-star Jessie Wallace, the show will not be returning to screens. 

The end of the series saw Kat seemingly dead at the end of the episode after the character had a batting accident.

While her husband Alfie Moon, played by Shane, saw his life hanging in the balance and he went in for a tumour operation.

When asked by Lorraine Kelly were there will by another series of Redwater, she replied: “I don’t think there will be another series.”

The host then probed about the fate of Kat and Alfie, but it didn’t look good as she responded: “I have no idea.”

The much anticipated Redwater series was aired on BBC One earlier this year, but was not well received by viewers. 

However, it wasn’t the run away success bosses may have hoped for, with the show being panned by viewers.

OK! Online has contacted a representative for Shane for comment.
