Sharing a photo of her, Ryan and little Frankie from Reveal magazine Chanelle wrote to her Instagram followers: “So excited for everyone to meet our new addition 💙Frankie Edward Oates💙and see our pics in this week’s @revealmagofficial #proudmummy.”

Fans flooded the post with comments and couldn’t get over how cute the newborn is.

“Welcome to the world Frankie, beautiful baby and beautiful photo,” one said.

Another commented: “Congratulations beautiful little family.”

A third wrote: “Love the name he’s so adorable!”

Chanelle is also mum to Blakely, seven, who she shares with footie ex Matthew Bates.

The star announced the arrival of Frankie back in August alongside an image of a quote which said: “And so the adventure begins.”

The snap was captioned: “Ryan, Blakely and I are absolutely over the moon to announce that the new addition to our little family has arrived safely and in a perfect package.”

She added that he arrived on “Tuesday 29 August 2017 at 1.34am”, and the hashtag “three becomes four”.

New dad Ryan was equally as excited by their bundle of joy and he revealed his elation on Twitter moments after Chanelle had posted her message.

“We are so in love with our beautiful little baby boy,” he wrote. “@chanellejhayes you were incredible. What an amazing feeling, he’s just perfect!”

But it seems her second pregnancy was much worse than her first.

Chanelle, who starred in Big Brother 2007 when she was 19-years-old, was diagnosed with hypermesis – severe morning sickness.

Back in May the reality star was rushed to hospital due to the illness.

Chanelle tweeted at the time: “Felt so poorly again the last 2 days. Please don’t let the 24/7 sickness be back #canthackthatallsummer”.

She appeared on This Morning back in June and told presenters Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes that she couldn’t enjoy the experience at all.

She even had to have a sick bucket next to her in case she threw up live on air!

The poor star said: “My hypermesis has really been wiping me out. I can throw up nearly 40 times a day. I feel so sorry for my partner and my son because I’ve just been so absent from their lives.”

Adding: “I’ve been on a drip in hospital numerous times, it’s been awful. I can’t even explain, it’s been vile.”

She also wanted to make it clear that not everybody experiences the same thing when you’re expecting.

“In no way am I ungrateful – I’m so grateful I could have a baby, especially when I’ve got polycystic ovaries and I’m overweight.”

Chanelle continued: “But it’s just such a miserable, miserable time – there’s such a lot of talk about postnatal depression but it can also make you feel really bad when you’re pregnant as well.”

“While I’m so grateful and I wouldn’t miss it for the world I don’t want to be ashamed to say I’m absolutely miserable.”

Now that little Frankie is here, the star is finally starting to get back to her usual self.
