Greg Lake shares gushing message about new mum Jen Metcalfe and their baby

Hollyoaks actress gave birth to first child earlier this week

It was announced earlier this week that the lovely Jennifer Metcalfe had delivered her first baby with partner of four years Greg Lake.

And they’ve had a beautiful bouncing boy!

A rep for the Hollyoaks actress said: “We are delighted to announce that our client Jennifer Metcalfe and partner Greg Lake welcomed a baby boy into the world yesterday.

“Mother and baby are doing fine.”

The couple decided not to find out the gender until the tot was born.

Jennifer, 34, said earlier in her pregnancy: “I feel like I’m the one who’s got to go through labour, so if I’ve got a little surprise at the end, it might get me through however many hours it’s going to be!”

Greg had been convinced they were awaiting a girl. He said: “I dreamt it. A little girl ran to me.”

Today Greg share a sweet message about his new family with fans on Instagram.

He thanked everyone who’d sent well wishes and assured them that he, Jen and their boy were all happy and healthy back home.

It’s a time of firsts for the couple – they only moved in together last month.

But Jen is taking it all in her stride. She told Loose Women recently: “I’m so excited, we’re best mates.”

Asked if she was nervous about moving in with former Geordie Shore star Greg, she said: “I think I should be, but after four years, I know he’s got plenty of bad habits.

“He leaves boxers all over the place.

“I don’t feel nervous because I trust our relationship. It’s fantastic, like being with my best friend all the time.”

They certainly look like the have the best time together.

Last Friday, Jen shared an image of them at the seaside, eating fish and chips.

She also shared pics of her taking a walk along the beach – the mamma-to-be was hoping it might get things moving!

It looks like Greg couldn’t wait to become a daddy.

At the weekend he shared an image of his first ever Father’s Day card.
