Love Island’s Amy Hart has announced she's welcomed her first child with boyfriend Sam Rason, as she opened up on her birth experience.

The former reality star had wanted to be a mother for a long time and she even underwent an expensive fertility treatment to freeze her eggs last year.

However, it was all worth it as the 30-year-old got to announce the news of her little one’s arrival yesterday (7 March).

The star’s bundle of joy arrived on 3 March, but Hart has had an extensive recovery time as she adjusts to life as a new mum alongside her long-term boyfriend.

Though she did say that her and her little one are recovering at home now, the former air hostess revealed that she spent five days in hospital after giving birth.

She also said that she’d had four days’ worth of contractions before her baby boy arrived last Friday.

In a heartfelt message to her fans, she spoke about her growing family and shared several photos: “Well…. 4 days of contractions at home (which everyone told us were Braxton hicks…they weren’t ), 4 very short hours in the delivery suite and 5 long days in hospital later, we are home with our dreamy baby boy born at 3.31am on 3/3/23 weighing 8lbs with the most beautiful head of hair (Amy would take the 9 months of reflux again) and we are so so in love.”

The Instagram post continued: “Proper introductions to come but now we’re home safe and sound. Thank you to everyone who sent their well wishes. We really appreciated it over the last few days [here’s a few delivery room snaps, can’t wait to show you his beautiful, non-post-birth swollen face.”

It’s likely that Hart’s new little one will be the first of many as the star plans to have a big family, according to a comment she made on Instagram last year.

Referring to her fertility treatment, she told fans on Instagram: “Use them [eggs] for 2nd/3rd/4th if we need to, if we don't, donate them! It was never an issue with falling pregnant, it was more the longevity of my fertility…my Prof said I had 2-3 years of good fertility left so I froze the higher quality, younger eggs."
