Two weeks ago, Brooke revealed that she was still eagerly awaiting the birth of her baby and shared a photo of a prenatal appointment from the comfort of her own living room.
The soap star lay on her couch when a midwife checked the baby's heartbeat.

Brooke has been low since going on maternity leave in August.
In a recent selfie, Brooke looked radiant in a monochrome maxi dress with dots while posing with a sportsman in front of a bathroom mirror during a date night.
The soap actress slipped her feet on stiletto heels and wore her necessities in a fuchsia handbag, jokingly looking like the & # 39; greatest Dalmatian you've ever seen & # 39 ;.

Brooke announced her pregnancy with Sheffield United-ace Kean in an interview with OK! magazine in April.
Helping hand: the pregnant star of Coronation Street, 27, admitted that her football friend Kean Bryan, 22, has helped with a number of tasks while her due date is approaching
She told the publication: & # 39; I have always been worried that it would not happen – I am lucky outside of myself.
& # 39; Kean brings out the best in me and it makes me so excited that we travel together.
& # 39; I like to think I am the boss of our relationship, but Kean has a very wise head on his shoulders, so I know he will be a brilliant father. & # 39;
She noted that the couple will not learn the sex of their baby and would rather be surprised, although Brooke adds that she suspects she will have a boy.
Brooke and Kean met through mutual friends in Manchester two years ago and started right away.
