Chelsee Healey has given birth to a baby girl following a difficult labour.

The Hollyoaks actress, 28, announced to fans on Saturday that she'd welcomed her first child into the world, and now she's let everyone know she's a proud mum to a little girl.

Revealing the sex of her bundle of joy in a cute Instagram photo from hospital, the besotted mum said she's feeling "so lucky, blessed and grateful."

In the intimate snap, Chelsee can be seen wearing a cream satin dressing gown while she gazes into her as-yet-named daughter's cot in their hospital room.

The little girl is surrounded by pink balloons, leaving no doubt as to her gender, and a beautiful bouquet of roses is visible at the foot of her bed.

Chelsee told fans: "Home time for me and my Princess! So lucky, blessed and grateful."

The baby's dad is Jack Malloy, whom Chelsee has been dating on and off for three years.

They endured a brief split last year after she reportedly found it difficult to cope when Jack was sent to jail for driving offences. But on his release, they rekindled things, announced the pregnancy and seemed happier than ever.

However, Chelsee hinted at a love split last week, when she shared a final picture of her baby bump with a message suggesting she'd been 'alone during the pregnancy.

"When I saw the test was positive, I started crying. But they were happy tears," she said. "It wasn't something we'd planned, but now we are having a baby we couldn't be happier."
