Naomi’s loving tribute came just days after Jordan posted a message of his own, praising his other half following the birth of Cassius.

He described Naomi as a “super woman” and “absolutely amazing” in a post to announce their son’s arrival.

Jordan said: “Words cannot describe the feeling of seeing your future come into this world. I’m so proud of mum & baby, both are doing absolutely amazing and Naomi, you are a super woman. If I didn’t know it before, I do now, I am the luckiest man there is.”

Jordan and Naomi kept their son’s birth to themselves for two days before telling the public.

Dancing On Ice backstage presenter Jordan explained: “We haven’t shared this straight away because we wanted to take some time to appreciate and enjoy the beautiful moment that we had as a family.”

Cassius was born at 12.29am on Monday, May 7.

Jordan and Naomi, 26, announced their pregnancy back in January, revealing Naomi had taken NINE pregnancy tests just to make sure the happy news was true.

Naomi told OK! magazine: “We always said we wanted kids together, we just didn’t think it would happen this soon. We’re over the moon, though!”

The couple met four years ago on a night out in Essex, and friendship turned to romance just over a year later.
