He wrote: "Welcome to the world little man. Our little ray of sunshine. Sonny James Aston" followed by a blue heart emoji.
Meanwhile, Sam's wife Briony shared the same photo on her Instagram and wrote alongside it: "Sonny Aston" followed by a sparkle emoji.
The pair announced exclusively to OK! Online that they were expecting their first child together.
“We’re so happy!” Sam, who plays father-of-five Chesney Brown in the ITV soap, told OK! of the couple’s pregnancy news at the time.
Amid the pair's exciting news, we have taken a peek at the snug abode their baby will be calling home.
Inside Sam and Briony's home
Sam shares the chic cottage with his yoga teacher wife, and not forgetting their adorable dogs too!
The home is terrifically cosy, and boasts a rustic vibe, with stone floors, exposed brick walls and fashionable interiors.

Inside, the couple are proud owners of a red leather sofa, adorned with cushions, which Briony showed off on Instagram when posting a shot of Sam strumming a guitar.
In the background sits a modern shelving unit adorned with trinkets, and a plant rests in the background.
Their lovely countryside cottage is also evidently a place where Briony practices her passion, with the 25 year old often sharing photos of herself in yoga positions.
In one photo, Briony can be seen laying across the bed in her bedroom. A shelf runs across a white wall in the background with a chain of gold moons hanging beneath.
On the shelf sits candles, plants, with side lamps resting on bedside tables besides the cosy bed.
The yoga enthusiast penned beneath the photo: “We finally added the finishing touches to our new bedroom and of COURSE there are moons.”

Sam has also been known to post the occasional shot of himself in his rustic abode, including a photo enjoying a roast dinner at the pair’s wooden dining table, as well as a snap with their adorable dogs.
During Sam’s wedding speech the actor said he hoped to start a family one day with Briony, to which his excited bride shrieked with delight! Although Sam later told us they planned on enjoying their honeymoon in the Maldives before trying for children.
“We want to enjoy being married for a while first and do some more travelling,” the Corrie star said.

The pair have recently also shared with OK! a glimpse inside their adorable nursery.
The floor of the nursery had not been laid yet, but we can see that the couple have elected to have a night sky print of a crescent moon and stars as a feature wall in the room; setting a perfect scene for sleep.
In the corner sits a book shelf full of story books they intend to read to their son, including books that were Sam's favourite when he was a child.
The rest of the walls in the room are painted an off-white colour, keeping the room fresh and light for the child. Because the room is unfinished, the couple have only just started putting up trinkets and decorations.
On the wall we can see that the pair have an empty photo frame as well as wooden name blocks, which Sam admitted "are personalised, secret unfortunately".

The couple remained tightlipped on the moniker they had chosen for their child before welcoming their baby, even to those close to them as, Briony revealed: "It's a five letter name though, my family keep guessing or trying to guess what the name is."
The pair are hoping that their first child Sonny will be one of many.
Sam revealed: "We’d like a big family. I’m one of nine children and I’m grateful to be part of a huge family, as it’s magical, but I’m not sure we’ll go to nine.
"That’s a lot of children and financial commitment. Let’s not forget I have five children on-screen, too!"
We hope they all get to enjoy this lovely nursery!
