Before learning about the pregnancy, James - as told to OK! Magazine - contemplated about getting engaged to his girlfriend, Sophie. He was going to do so while on their then-upcoming trip to Australia in November 2018.

But the pregnancy confirmation foiled his plans of getting married. Opening about the possibility of marriage, he explained:-

"I'd liked to have got engaged before now. I was going to ask Sophie in Australia when we were visiting my family last November but then we found out we were expecting."

James' wedding plans with his longtime wife Sophie prospect may be on the hold for the moment, but the pair - who have been dating since 2016 - is far from calling it quits.

The Brit actor told OK! Magazine in the stated interview that he may quit his role as Dr. Ali Neeson in Coronation Street and venture out to other projects.

Fighting With My Family - starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and actors like Nick Frost, Stephen Merchant, Vince Vaughn, and Jack Lowden - very well might be one of those projects.

Besides Coronation Street, James' acting credits in TV shows and movies include This Is England, Robin Hood, Eden Lake, Mount Pleasant, Prey, Lies & Records, and Safe House.

Although there is no definitive figure on his fortune, his net worth is definitely on the rise.

When he was 10, his family moved to Duffield part of Derby. The Safe House actor, who surpasses the five feet and eight inches height mark by ease, lives in Manchester with his girlfriend.
