Taking to Twitter, Dec posted a beautiful photo of little Isla's hand wrapped around her daddy's hand.

Dec wrote: "Ali and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our baby girl, Isla Elizabeth Anne, who was born just after 9 o’clock this morning.

"Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels! D x."

Ali and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our baby girl.

Dec's best pal and presenting partner Ant McPartlin later expressed his joy over Dec and Ali's new addition.

He tweeted: "Welcome to the world baby Isla Elizabeth Anne. Can’t wait for cuddles. I love you already!! Uncle Ant xxxxx."

Dec and Ali tied the knot on 1 August 2015 in Dec's hometown of Newcastle.

The pair married at a stunning church in Elswick while surrounded by their close friends and family. Ant was his best man.

Back in March, Dec confirmed he was to become a dad after a newspaper reported Ali was pregnant with their first child.

Alongside a picture of himself and Ali on their wedding day, Dec announced the happy news.

He said: "Just wanted to say thank you for all the lovely messages.

"The news has sneaked out a little earlier than we had hoped but Ali and I are delighted to be expecting our first child.

Dec can now enjoy adjusting to fatherhood before the family jet off to Australia so Dec can co-host I'm A Celebrity, which begins in November.
