Coronation Street spoilers: Maria Connor rocked by baby twist – but is Gary the father?
Maria (played by Samia Longchambon) has found herself in the centre of a love triangle with Gary (Mikey North) and GP Ali Neeson (James Burrows) on Coronation Street of late with the men fighting for her affections. Having had romantic dalliances with both ITV soap heart throbs recently, the hairdresser is tipped for a pregnancy bombshell in the coming weeks. However, will the sinister loan shark be the father, or his love rival?
After suffering from a drug addiction, Ali called time on his relationship with Maria earlier this year after months of sparks flying between the pair.
The mother-of-one then caught the eye of Gary as she rowed with her ex-boyfriend’s mother Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) about how the GP had broken her heart.
As his villainous streak has become more apparent of late, the former builder turned his attentions towards striking a romance with the hairdresser, only for her ex to try and weigh in to win her back.
Despite his best efforts, Maria will continue to pursue things with loan shark, but she could be left in turmoil as she discovers she’s expecting and has no idea who the father is.

According to reports from The Sun, the coming weeks will see Gary go all out to show Maria he is in it for the long run.
With his illegal empire building in the shadows, the loan shark will shower his girlfriend with elaborate gifts and even surprise her by asking the hairdresser to move into a plush new flat with him.
At present, no one on the street is aware just how troubled and unhinged the ex-builder is so naturally, the mother-of-one will fall for his web of lies.
The speed of their relationship will raise a few eyebrows on the cobbles however, which will lead to the discovery Maria is expecting.
Maria raises eyebrows by shunning the champers
A source told the publication: “No-one else quite knows why they are moving so fast until they go to celebrate moving in together in the Rovers and Maria raises eyebrows by shunning the champers and only having a lime and soda.
“One of the girls asks them if they’re expecting and Gary’s answer all but confirms it leading to Maria desperately shushing the cheers and congratulations.”
Express.co.uk have contacted a spokesperson for the ITV soap who declined to comment on the speculation.
If the plot line does come to fruition, could the hairdresser be down playing the news because she doesn’t want Ali to get ear of her condition?

Last night’s edition of the Weatherfield based drama saw Gary’s insecurities about his relationship with Maria unravel when she offered her ex a shoulder to cry on.

Unfortunately, the loan shark was lurking in the shadows and witnessed the moment of passion before confronting his girlfriend about what he’d seen.
After Maria assured him she didn’t want to get back with her former lover, the super villain hired a private investigator to follow his love rival.
