SOCCER ace David Dunn is said to be "over the moon" that his fiancee Sammy Winward is pregnant with their first child.
Great Harwood-born David, 24, and Sammy, 19, who plays Katie Sugden in ITV soap Emmerdale, have been together for over two years.
The pair, who have been likened to Posh and Becks by the national tabloids, are set to tie the knot next year after David popped the question at her 18th birthday party.
David, a former Rovers star who now plays for Birmingham City, returns home on a regular basis to visit his friends and family.
His grandma Alice, of Belmont Road, Great Harwood, said: "The whole family are happy about the news - we're chuffed to bits. I am delighted I am going to be a great-grandma.
"His mum Sue is thrilled she is going to be a grandma.
"David and Sammy are always dropping in to see us.
"They came last weekend as Sammy's grandparents were celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary."
When asked whether the happy duo were hoping for a boy or girl, Alice, who lives with husband David, added: "I think they are going to wait to find out as it will be a nice surprise for them both."
