“She was amazing and held my hand with Scott through it. I wanted a water birth like I had with Delilah. Delilah’s birth was so quick, only two hours and really straight forward.

“I had to have my waters broken with Charlie though and he pooed, so I gave birth on the bed and didn’t let go of my gas and air for a second. I feel like I can do anything now and it was really magical.

He was 8lbs 4.5oz, which is mine and Scott’s biggest baby, our girls were really petite.

The actress continued: “He was 8lbs 4.5oz, which is mine and Scott’s biggest baby, our girls were really petite. It was really nice to have Charlie at Bolton Hospital too where my mum gave birth to me.”

Another pic, posted shortly before, showed her standing holding the tot. In the caption, she called him a “dream come true”.
