She confirmed the pregnancy news to Hello! magazine: "The baby was conceived not long after we got engaged in March. It's definitely the most wonderful engagement present we could ever wish for."

The birth comes just over a week after she shared that she had been mugged for her phone, which included various precious pregnancy information and photos.

She begged the person to return it on Instagram, with the caption including: "To the dude that robbed me, I do understand desperation often makes many of us turn to things we would rather not do.

"But I don’t think you understand the implications that stealing my phone (that I had just bought to take better pictures of my baby) last week has had on something really quite important in my life.

"I was #41weekspregnant and therefore became an easy target. Remember when you see a pregnant lady she is not just that big belly - that baby is her hopes, dreams and future and her every waking breath goes into building and preparing for that new life.

"I was terrified of birth... But I spent months and months obsessively doing what I needed to do in order to trust in myself and believe that I could do it. My #hynobirthing tracks, the playlist I made to keep myself calm, the notes I wrote to myself, all lost."
