The soap star, 25, announced her daughter’s birth via Instagram two days ago, posting a stunning picture of elder daughter Ella, three, meeting her sister for the first time.

Jacqueline wrote as the caption: “My little family is complete! Mia Osborne is so beautiful! The birth went well and I can’t thank my family enough.

“Me and baby are healthy and resting now. Welcome to the world baby girl! 💞 Ella is the best big sister! So caring and sweet. Thanks for the kind messages, love to you all! X.”

Ex TOWIE star Dan, 26, also confirmed the birth on his own Instagram page, sharing a separate photo of Ella and Mia.

He told fans: “2/3 of my ABSOLUTE WORLD!! ❤ Welcome to the world Mia Osborne 💗 another little princess 😊 Jacqueline did amazing, she is doing fine and baby is perfect 😊 25.06.2018 🙌🏼❤.”

Dan is also dad to son Teddy, four, from a previous relationship.

Further photos showed Dan with Teddy, Ella and Mia, captioned: “This is what ‘complete’ feels like ❤ all of my incredible, beautiful children together 😊 feel like the luckiest man on earth 😊💙💗💗.”

The couple announced a second baby was on the way at Christmas and had already confirmed it would be a girl before the birth.

It hasn’t been the easiest few months, however, as their marriage was rocked by claims Dan had moved out of the marital home following a string of rows.

Jacqueline added to the newspaper that she’s “pretty good at not getting stressed”, saying: “Maybe I’ve just got a really thick skin but when it comes down to the nitty-gritty, I get on with things and stay calm.”
