Last night was a night I will never forget. I became a “Loli” for the first time!!! My beautiful daughter was an absolute warrior and her partner and I were the best birthing team we could be!!! I was so honoured to have been a part of bringing him into the world. My beautiful grandson, I love you I will always love you and I promise to help guide you through life as best I can. Welcome to the world “Baby Hoz” #name to follow 💙💙
Fans were quick to offer their congratulations, with one writing: “I am so happy for you Kym, by some of your posts we know have excited you have been to meet him! Congratulations to all of you xo.”
Another said: “Congratulations being a Nanny is the best.”
Kym announced her daughter’s pregnancy last year, and insisted in an interview on This Morning she wouldn’t be called “Grandma” or “Nanny”.
She said she was “excited” about becoming a grandparent but she didn’t fancy the ‘granny’ label just yet…
She said: “I’m really excited about being a grandparent but there’s no way I’m being a grandma, or granny, nanny or any of those things. We looked on a website and found alternative names and I’m going to be Lolly.”
This Morning co-host Eamonn Holmes then added: “Lolly – you certainly will be the most glamorous granny out there. A luscious Lolly.”
The Coronation Street actress replied: “Luscious Lolly? I’m going with that one.”
She joked she “forced” her daughter to undergo a pregnancy test after Emilie let slip that she was late and had a stomach ache while she was casually doing her mum’s nails one day.
Kym – who gave birth to Emilie’s brother David Cunliffe, 23, when she was 19 – explained: “She said, ‘I have a bit of a tummy ache but I’m late,’ and I was like, ‘How late?’ And she was like, ‘Well, so many weeks.’
“And I was like, ‘Emilie, do you not think we should do a test?’ But she was scared. So I kind of forced her.”
Aspiring singer Emilie, who once auditioned for The Voice, added: “We did this test and immediately she looked at my belly and went, ‘Hello.’ ”
